The Godfather was our final stop for the day. They were well prepared for us, greeting us with Eno’s. A little humour at the end of the day was quite welcome.

This well-established Centurion favourite is known for their excellent service, and with good reason. The wait staff is friendly, professional, and expertly trained. They are quite versatile with their offerings. You can go for a great lunch or a fantastic date. Both scenarios will give you great food and top notch service.

Even though it is indeed quite a large restaurant, the way it is set up feels small and intimate. Dim lighting and the soft chatting of the tables around us lent itself well to the atmosphere. The rowdier crowd can also enjoy themselves at the bar area, separate from the restaurant.

A note from the organiser: The Godfather is one of those places that you form a relationship with – birthdays, anniversaries, promotions – The Godfather will always feature in them. A place where they know your name!

The final burger offered by them was a delicious triple stacked burger with haloumi. Despite being an ingredient that can be tricky to cook well, the execution was done expertly, and made for a very enjoyable experience.

Finishing at this iconic restaurant was the perfect end to the day.
