After many, many monthly visits we got to go back and try the A la Carte Menu and we decided we definitely going back again soon!!!

What an absolute pleasure, we have been to numerous Chef & the Vine Dinners, Sunday Buffet’s, but am embarrassed to admit we never had a dish on the A la Carté Menu. We set that right at the start of 2018 and as I said what a pleasure.

The menu has something for everyone and showcases dishes that reflect a celebration of the Cape’s rich culinary heritage, good honest food indeed.

Visiting Reuben’s is always like we with family, all the staff treats us like one of their own still maintaining their high levels of standards.

Our waiter was very knowledgeable, as always, and whilst trying to suggest some dishes, only confused us even more because everything simply sounded too good. Therefore before we even enjoyed one flavourful morsel we already were thinking of our next visit, this is always a good sign. 😉

Nothing disappointed and it’s hard to pick a favourite but the Velouté and Pork Belly deserves a mentioned.
