Potential to be a great restaurant for business or pleasure, date night etc but the staff in general are not overly attentive or to the other extreme are hovering, and frankly the restaurant does lack atmosphere The head waiter is OK however clearly smokes and doesn't make any effort to clean himself up - freshen breath etc prior to interacting...

The Godfather has become one of our favorite restaurants to go to. The service is excellent and the food is superb. You cannot get a better steak in Pretoria and the Creme Brûlée is to die for. They make traditional onion rings and are very knowledgeable on wines. The staff and management make you feel special.

Very popular for meat lovers. A very well established restaurant with excellent food. Management makes extra effort to visit each customer and to engage with them. We have been going there for 20 years and they are still going strong and never disappoint. Well done and thanks Janet for a great restaurant

Love their steaks! Waiter was super efficient. If you love a tasty steak I can recommend them. Book in advance to avoid waiting.

We had our year-end dinner in the private function room, and as always, they do not disappoint. Mimmosas ready on arrival and the dining table elegantly set up. Orders ranged from jalapeño rissoles, to prawns for starters and grilled sole, to their famous carpet bagger for mains. Blood pudding was new on the menu, a couple of the guys ordered... More

We decided to go out rather than eat in the hotel restaurant every night. This place had good reviews on TA so we decided try it. We were not disappointed our waiter was friendly and helpful from the start. The cocktails were great and they helped take away the bitter aftertaste of a day watching England try to play cricket....

Food old school style. Where you still get a steak that not just fill your plate but melt in your mouth like butter. Great sevice great atmosphere and an institution to the good days when Centurion didn't comprimise quality food, service and family for a fast food fix.
