Enough said! Book a table - don't miss out. I travel to Durban from the UK about once a year and always try to visit. You won't find steak like this anywhere in Europe.

From a simple grilled steak to a pan fried filet with sauce and button mushrooms with veg - there really isn't much in this world that comes close to a steak from Joop's place! Jopp (pronounced "Yope") is a master and you really have to...More
