The Eye is not bigger than the tummy

There is nothing better than a great steak (unless you’re vegetarian, in which case there is nothing worse than a great steak).
The best I’ve had so far is at Nelson’s Eye in Cape Town. If you ever want to indulge in a delicious chunk of red meat, head that way.
Even my food-fussy friend, Gen, gave her seal of approval (no seriously, she’s even more fussy than I am!) so I take that as a sure sign that they are really good and it’s not just me who thinks so.
The atmosphere is unpretentious, the décor is not as impressive as the food (something they pride themselves on) and the service is great. It can get a bit rowdy but that adds to the vibe most of the time.
If you like refined sophistication, this isn’t the place to go.
But if you’re after good food, this is a great place to go for a special celebration (they’re a bit pricey so it’s not the kind of place you go every week).
When’s my birthday now again?
