Steaks were not done as per request, so we sent one back. Only to realise a day later we were charged for two deserts we never had.

We had drinks here and while they were pleasant it was nothing special. Nice spot to watch the world go by

I went to this restaurant thinking it would be similar to Truth Coffee in Cape Town. They serve Truth coffee, plus the decor, logo, and waitstaff's attire look really similar. Unfortunately, they just seem to be a bad copy of Truth, as they don't even make a nice coffee. Also, they don't offer milk alternatives like their counterpart in Cape... More

Food was great and well priced. Ordered a 350g fillet steak which arrived un-butterflied, how it should be. Service and waiter were also good! Thanks.

I have visited this restaurant four times and yesterday will most certainly be my last. The first was not long after they opened and meat dish was hard and dry, I forgave it as a teething issue. The next time I had a guest and who wanted cigarettes, they charged her R65 for a pack of cigarettes.!! This is a... More

Great concept for a restaurant, we started upstairs in the gin bar, nice gins. John the bank ordered the Contraptor burger-wish I had too, as not so keen on my choice of babootee Had fun wearing the googles we found on the wall, and we went back a day later for just drinks as we liked the atmosphere so much.

never been before, we strolled to Steam, without a booking, we were accommodated and proceeded to have a lovely evening. Dinner was first class, different, pleasing to the eye, and on top of it - very tasty. Fillet, melted in your mouth. After a lovely meal, we went upstairs to the Gin Bar, met some friends, and had an ABF... More
