Great food, amazing service, lovely atmosphere. The front dining area's windows open up to be almost patio-esque and the spaciousness of the area made us feel safe amidst this covid pandemic. Our server recommended the best drinks and appetizers. Will definitely be returning

I was taken here for date night and man this place is amazing. From entering the parking lot it’s a full experience. There’s complimentary valet which is amazing. We had a reservation so we were seated immediately and the place is absolutely beautiful on the inside. We loved the dim lighting and candles on the table. The waiter was very nice and recommended some delicious food. The bathrooms were very clean, the food didn’t take long at all. It was very good and everything was fresh. I had the peri peri chicken and it was everything i needed it to be. The rice and vegetables were perfection. My date had the cape kingklip and i found myself enjoying his food also lol! Overall if i could give this place a 100 stars out of 10 i would. We spent our ride home planning our next date night back at 10 degrees.

The food and the service were both outstanding. The 3 of us basically ordered what our server recommended. The chicken livers were amazing, and then we shared a large sampler plate of meats that was incredible.

I used to go to 10 Degrees South often, as it's near my house. Because it's a little on the expensive side, it a bit more of a special occasion for me now. On my most recent visit, I had the beef bobotie, and it's just as good as I remembered it from my prior visits. In fact, I think it's one of my favorite dishes from any cuisine at any restaurant! It's has a great combination of sweetness and spice that is a unique profile for South African cuisine.

I also sampled the very good Boerewors with a tomato and onion sauce.

It was disappointing that another one of my favorites, the mektert, is no longer on the menu as a desert item, but it might be a blessing as I mostly skip deserts now.

10 Degrees South is an excellent choice to bring out-of-town visitors who aren't afraid to try something that is deliciously different.

I can recommend the lamb chops, chicken curry, ostrich medallions ( SO good) and chocolate lava cake. I didn’t care for South African wines, unfortunately. We’ll be back!

We had a reservation for 6:30 and when we arrived there was only one table occupied with one couple there. The maitre d on duty tried to sit us immediately next to the couple who, until then were enjoying a peaceful dinner, with no one sitting right on top of them! We politely asked if we might be seated elsewhere - there were at least 8 other tables of two available in the front part of the restaurant alone. We were informed that all of the other tables were reserved. (As was ours - not aware you could request a specific table when reserving?! ) We were seated two tables away and want to note that during the time we were there, several other tables for two farther away remained vacant!

Everything was great. Our server was great. Only problem was that the drink service was incredibly slow. I was about 30 minutes to get our first drink, aside from water.

Ten Degrees has been our go to place for over 10 year now. My husband and I LOVE the Calamari and Boerewors Sandwich with a few Lychee martinis to start. It is always hard to decide because everything is good! The service is always top notch. We love the upscale lounge atmosphere. We look forward to going back always.

The food here is very good. We had the lobster spring rolls, prawns, sea bass (catch of the day), and chicken curry. They also had a pretty good cocktail menu, but I believe, for the price, the drinks could be larger and/or heavier pours (first drink was mostly all ice).
The worst part was the service however. Our waitress was nice, but was not attentive to the table and we sat waiting multiple times for refills or waiting to order something. The restaurant was also not that busy, so not sure what the issue was.
Will certainly return again due to the delicious food, but hope the service is much improved the next time around.

Second time I’ve been and the second time I’ve been disappointed. The food is decent but service is severely lacking. Also, both times I have gone I was either overcharged on my CC or brought the wrong change with cash. One time is an error, but two times?

I overall enjoyed the food and atmosphere but for a restaurant of this caliber, our waitress could have been a little more knowledgeable with the menu and friendly. When asking questions about the food, no description ir detail was given just *its good* and her personality was very dry. The food however, was delicious. Me and my husband will go back again, but if the service is the same, that will definitely be our last visit here.
