I was looking for a place for a quick lunch at the V&A Waterfront and found Krugmann's Grill. The menu looked all right and the service was amazing, I had the Set menu 01 (noodle roll, double bubble burguer and the malva pudding). I chose the Double Bubble medium-rare, actually all my choices were rather tasty and the service (Suzette)... More

Starters are quite nice but that's where it ends. Offered bread but try asking for olive oil and balsamic vinegar and you will receive a premixed concoction that looks gross. They premix the olive oil and balsamic which does not have the desired taste or look for that matter. Ordered a steak, what I got was a piece of meat... More

At the V&A waterfront this unassuming restaurant lends itself to excellent friendly service. Prices are very fair for good food. I had the Double Burger and was extremely satisfied.

KG came with high recommendations. While neither food nor service were faulty, their D&E classic beef burger was a bit of a disappointment. Not bad but simply nothing out of the ordinary. The interior is quite nice but I probably would rather go in gloomy weatger as it probably has a more cosy feeling to it than on a bright... More

Quick service, chewy sirloin, bad lighting. Ordered medium, steak received was on the rare side due to bad lighting could not really see. But all the sinew was completely off putting.

From the time we walked in till the time we paid our bill, the service was amazing. The food a 500gm Espetada and a grilled Fillet with Madagascan sauce was tender, soft and mouth watering. Well done team you deserve 5 stars on both counts. We will be back. Thank you.

We have been to this conveniently located steakhouse several times but over the last few years, the service has deteriorated to consistently slow to unbelievably slow. Last night was no exception, where it took 2 hours to order and consume the main course for a party of 6 - no deserts or coffees because there was no time. The food... More

Visited Krugmann's last night with a Groupon for our anniversary. What a great evening. Fantastic atmosphere. Great waitress. Order the Rump with mushroom sauce. Amazing basting on the steak and was full afterwards. My wife had the chocolate fondant and I the malva pudding. The malva pudding was disappointing but he fondant great. I will definitely recommend them and go... More
