Margarita's is not one of the best, but the best restaurant in Bloemfontein. Easy access from the N1 and situated in the northern suburbs of Bloemfontein. You will get no better steaks than at this restaurant. George and his family are excellent hosts. Excellent menus with best prices - especially with the big portions you get. Service is very very...

Excellent menu with a wide range of dishes including steak and seafood dishes. Parking may sometimes be a slight problem. Waiters are well acqainted with menu as well as the wines on the list. Excellent food. Waiting time may be a bit long. In my opinion the best steak restaurant in Bloemfontein.

The food and service was excellent. Large selection of wines. Do however be careful the stairs are quite steep as you enter the establishment.

We had been looking forward to our evening at Margaritas catching up with friends. It somehow did not quite live up to what we had expected. We choose the kingklip special available on the night...and it was over cooked. And cannot say for sure, but the vegetables had the taste of frozen veg? Every item is charged extra, every sauce,...

Even on a Tuesday night it was busy which is a great sign - the food was excellent, very reasonably priced for the quality and the service and welcome was first class. The good reputation is highly deserved and I would go back if in the area again.

Thank you for blessing us with your positive review, we source all our fish whole and direct and do not sell frozen portion fish. Here in the Free State we've been selling seafood for over 30 years and our father taught us well, its not just beef here. regards, Margaritas Staff More

Food is good and good service. Feel it to be a bit over prices to other places of better value and food. Still good every now and then

Margaritas is a family owned restaurant. The father had a very well loved restaurant of his own and after that the brothers took over and started Margaritas as well. The food is excellent, somewhat pricy and sometimes you wait a bit long for the order to arrive, but when it does it will blow your mind. The portions are very... More
