Went here for a n early evening meal after the cricket. We were the only ones in the place. Food was average, although the waitress was extremely attentive and very helpful.

My daughter went to a birthday celebration on Tuesday 15 December and she said that she was dismayed at the level of service! At 10pm they were still waiting on their main course and they were there from 7:30pm! They waited for half an hour for RAW oysters to be served! Really.....no cooking involved and it still took a half... More

table settings very close to each other and not all have a view of the full place. The service was average as we had to aske for sauces and the steak was tasteless

We bought a Groupon for a three course meal to try out this restaurant that we never frequented before. It was approximately 13H00 on a Thursday afternoon in the centre of the Claremont CBD and when we arrived, we were the only patrons at this restaurant which was quite strange. There was a prescribed list on the menu for Groupon.... More

Was one of the first one to walk into the restaurant on a quiet Tuesday evening. Drinks service at the bar was good. The barman was friendly but that was about it. My colleague joined me a few minutes later and a few people had already got into the restaurant. We ordered drinks from the table we had chosen and... More

I bought a Groupon voucher and had a reservation for today at 12h45. Got there at 12h30 and the wooden tables were set up in no order.

I spent time with special friends at Bentley's a few days ago. Overall it was a very disappointing experience. We arrived at 7pm as per our booking. Our starters and drinks orders were taken after 8pm. After 9pm we were still waiting on these starters. And by then our main orders had not yet been taken. So basically waited very... More

We bought a groupon voucher for a three course meal for two. We arrived just after 12 for our 12:30 Saturday afternoon booking. The place looked a bit strange and "tired" and only two couples were sitting at other tables. After moving to the third table, we had one which was stable enough to eat at. The others were wobbly...
