Margarita's owner George welcomes us every time we go. The service is consistently excellent and the food perfectly prepared every time. The wine list and the menus are extensive and will surely more than satisfy any diner. Definitely our favourite in Bloemfontein.

So let me ask have you ever been so impressed with a restaurant that you went there three nights in succession ? Well we did! We just could not fault it. The food and the friendly service were just exceptional. On the fourth night we decided to test an alternative ... a mistake. Comprehensive menu with both meat and seafood... More

A visit to Margaritas is a highlight in any visit to Bloemfontein. Their seafood is good, the steaks are great (there is also a Tuesday night special) and the restaurant itself is elegant and cosy. It is also well priced compared o similar restaurants in Cape Town. It is a safe bet when looking for a restaurant in Bloem.

Best steak in Bloemfontein and an amazing atmosphere. The lady that served us knew all the specials and she could recommend a dish that we both enjoy.

Margarita's is not one of the best, but the best restaurant in Bloemfontein. Easy access from the N1 and situated in the northern suburbs of Bloemfontein. You will get no better steaks than at this restaurant. George and his family are excellent hosts. Excellent menus with best prices - especially with the big portions you get. Service is very very...

Excellent menu with a wide range of dishes including steak and seafood dishes. Parking may sometimes be a slight problem. Waiters are well acqainted with menu as well as the wines on the list. Excellent food. Waiting time may be a bit long. In my opinion the best steak restaurant in Bloemfontein.

The food and service was excellent. Large selection of wines. Do however be careful the stairs are quite steep as you enter the establishment.
