Having never visited Cape Greko before, I was looking forward to sampling their food. For starters, I ordered Pan-fried tiger prawns with garlic and fresh chillies and my partner ordered Halloumi cheese. The Halloumi was good, the prawns were nice if not a bit dry and when I asked for some chilli oil, the waitress informed me that they did not have any but they had chillies!!!!. For mains we ordered Shank of lamb slowly cooked in the oven with mint, rosemary, thyme, garlic and white wine and Skewered diced lamb marinated in white wine, olive oil, garlic and thyme, served with tzatziki. To say it was the worst meal we ever had was an understatement.The shank of lamb was tasteless and its fatty juices were swimming in the plate, some parts of the lamb overcooked and some undercooked. The kebabs were well overcooked and also tasteless. In fairness to the waitress, she asked if we would like to change dishes, at this point I just wanted the bill. To make matters worst, when the bill came, they tried charge me for the amount that I already paid for through Menupages but then apologised saying it was a mistake. If this is the food they present to try entice new customers, they will fail badly. We were not the only unsatisfied customers that night and I have recommended my friends not to visit this restaurant.
