Cosy restaurant which serves of the best steaks you can get in town. They were able to accommodate us at short notice, table was ready when we arrived. Starters came out very fast and the steaks did not take that long even though they were pretty full. The waiter knows his cuts and when the food arrived I was not... More

I live very close to the Avenue restaurant & have found that it has really improved recently! We have been twice for dinner & also for lunch & had great food each time. Service is quick & friendly. Large menu with great steaks & fish.

In Cape Town for the first time, I'm lucky to be staying in Claremont close to The Avenue - I've eaten there twice in four days and will be back! The food is really good, the best steak I've had for quite a while. The staff are efficient, friendly and helpful, and the atmosphere is buzzy but not noisy. And... More

Enjoyed a lovely meal at The Avenue. Service is absolutely superb - drinks and meals arrived virtually immediately. Quality and variety of meals was great and ambiance very relaxed. Not suited for children, but a cosy experience in an awkward part of town.

Best steaks in CT. Good menu, caters for vegetarians as well and reasonably priced. Bring your own bottle, modest corkage.

Greeted and seated with the minimum of fuss and drinks arriving almost before they were ordered. An office "Christmas Do" with partners which can, but didn't, create a bit of tension. I cannot comment about the ambiance/atmosphere for other diners as we had enough fun and frolic at our own table. The food - superb. Big juicy rib-eye steaks for... More

The first restaurant in Cape Town that does not have baby chairs and any sort of baby changing facilities. Great food but attracting families will mean catering for baby basic facilities

Went to The Avenue with three of my family. Sat outside on the stoop. Lovely atmosphere. Wonderful food and excellent service. Were attentive and very friendly. Will certainly be going back again.

My nieces booked for dinner at The Avenue Restauants in Claremont. I hadn't heard of it but was open to trying it. An important claim to its fame is that it is halal friendly and Cape Town has quite a large Muslim population, so it satisfies a good niche. Their steaks a good as are their sauces, all cooked in...

This small restaurant in Harfield Village offers excellent food at a very good price. The service was a little slow as they had run out of veggies but the food was worth the wait.
