Have eaten here many times and always had great service and a wonderful meal. Took friends for dinner and the evening went wrong from the first instance. The service was extremely slow. The waitress when she arrived to take a drinks order lost her pen....More

We enjoyed a delicious lunch to celebrate a significant birthday - with family members ranging in age from 2 to 87 years old. Great service and tasty food - especially the duck a l'orange and surf & turf. Lovely desserts include creme caramel and cointreau...More

Had dinner at Werner's Bistro during a business trip to Johannesburg. Has a good restaurant ambiance. There are tables above a pool. I sat inside. Ordered a Ostrich fillet medium rare with salad. (R 183.00) Was ok, not succulent as I expected. Nothing to rave...More

Food and service was fantastic. Had the prawn curry which was extremely tasteful but didn’t burn the hell out of me. My son had the baby chicken and couldn’t stop raving about it

We went here particularly for the Eisbein and Werners didn't disappoint. Big and well cooked with crispy crackling. The fillet steak was delicious and apple strudel was the best. Great entertainment and fast and polite service completed the day. Recommend wholeheartedly!

The atmosphere is cosy, you can sit outside near the pool, sit in the bar. The waitrons are friendly and helpful on choosing menu. You can bring your friends, family and business partners. There are evenings where there is live music, that a cherrie on...More
