Theo's Grill Nov'13
So….it’s the end of the year, and time to enjoy the final Steak Night of the year; the venue being the highest overall ranking restaurant.
Looking back, we only managed to enjoy seven Steak Nights this year – but the unanimous winner was Theo’s in Mouille Point. An epic winter night was enjoyed at the beachfront restaurant earlier - and it even came close to dethroning the mighty Carne overall; courtesy of some fine fillet-on-the-bone and 5-star service.
The tone of the evening was set when one of the boys plonked a 5l magnum on the table. Right, that’s how you get value out of R25 corkage! We had specifically requested Cyril as our waiter for the night, and he quickly set about his business – starting us off with plates of tasty biltong. Fillet-on-the-bone (FOTB) was the order of the day, and once again Theo’s delivered.
The perfect sized cut of 350g (less 50g for the bone) was well grilled. Excellent flavours and the tenderness one expects of a fillet. Admittedly the sides were not exactly fine dining, but that’s never going to spoil our evening.
It was indeed a fitting end to the year. Top quality steak, accompanied by top class service.
Overall: 8.5 (average of scores)
Steak 9/10 – Now I see why this was the best steak house this year. The FOB was fantastic. I felt Cafe Dijon was the tastiest yet since I’ve been home but this was flippin close in taste stakes (dddish!), and the overall quality of the meat was better. Very happy Mundo.
STEAK : Flavour – 60% - 7/10
Steak: 8/10 - not at the same level as my previous FOB, but well cooked, tender and tasty.
Ambiance - Chasing zee German out of zee restaurant +10 points
