  1. The Penguin Cafe & Bar


    Yesterday was Fathers Day, my wife said she would take us all out for lunch. We arrived at The Penguin Cafe and Bar got a drink and ordered our meals. After 50 minutes and still no food I went to the counter to enquire what was happening. I was told they were busy. OK, this much I understand. As I returned to our table and sat down one of the kitchen staff moved over to the serving window and said in a loud voice "HA, WOULDN'T WANNA BE MARRIED TO HIM!". For a moment I didn't think it was directed at me but my wife who was facing in that direction saw it and heard it as well. I was absolutely astounded and very embarrassed due to other people being seated around us. I told the manager that we had heard the comment and she just said "yeah" and laughed. No apology no nothing. Anywhere else the staff member would have been given a written warning at the least. I have eaten all around the world from sitting on the footpath in Jo'burg to top 5 star in HongKong and have never been spoken to in such a disrespectful, rude and unprofessional manner before by staff. It ruined our day. We are local people of this area and will never return to this establishment.
