Since 1984 Wombles Steakhouse Restaurant has provided customers in Zimbabwe with man-size portions of Zimbabwean beef and other culinary delights. Owners Duncan and Yvette Barker have now opened Wombles in Parktown North after a period in Australia where they owned Campo de Fiori. A testimony to their success in Australia was winning the Gold Plate Award, which is the highest honour a restaurant can receive. After owning and managing over 7 establishments the Barker family has settled on Johannesburg. They were missing Africa and wanted to take concepts from other restaurants and lodges they had owned and incorporate the themes and food styles into one.
With the help of some of their original staff members from Harare, the restaurant maintains to be a well-respected local favourite. Fully seated Wombles, seats over 100 diners.
