Had heard good things about Reuben's but was rather disappointed. While the presentation was good, taste was average. Not what I expected, given the reputation and price. I would suggest giving it a skip - better food elsewhere.

This place came highly recommended but based, I believe, on its previous location in Huguenot Street. There was no real atmosphere so was disappointing in that respect. We had starters and main courses which were served and eaten within an hour. Far to quick. The food however was good (the pork belly was outstanding - probably the best we'd ever eaten) but for us it has to be a balance of food and ambience. For that reason we wouldn't return. However, good value in terms of price - equivalent of 50 sterling for two courses, a bottle of decent wine for two.

Not quite up to the previous high quality and ambience prior to relocation from Huguenot Street. Bar staff training and optical impression not really acceptable.

Service was good, the restaurant and setting, has lovely views... food however slightly average compare to what we had sampled in our two week stay in South Africa!

We had Sunday lunch at Ruben's Pop-Up two weeks ago and as locals it has now become a firm favorite! The staff were so friendly, polite and efficient. The food was delicious and beautifully presented. The atmosphere was very relaxed and comfortable, not even the 30mins of no power spoilt the day, in fact it just added to the comrade amongst all the diners!
