Fantastic! Nothing less. The food, the service, the wine, the sommelier. Fantastic! Such a great experience and surprise. The best experience in pure South African cuisine ever with pure and complex tastes.

A family tradition to visit on our annual trip. Severely overpriced! And lack of atmosphere. The staff are attentive though and some pork dish was good but the duck was disappointing for the price. The menu gets more generic each year we return this was our 4th and it was mediocre. Enjoyed our pre-dinner drinks in the lobby bar better.

I was at this restaurant in April 2017. This was a first visit to Reuben's at the One&Only Hotel, CapeTown. I had a Tomato soup as a stater, the spice was unbearable, there was no balance and the soup was too spicy. They had to prepare another one. Main meal was an oxtail and mash. This too was a disappointing... More
