The food is gr8 but all in all a little expensive. The service however is very slow. you will wait up to 15-20 minutes for your drinks order and they don't all arrive at once. The deck overlooks the Crocodile River and into the Kruger...Park so the views are spectacular and there are some gr8 sightings.More

This is one of the restaurants with the most beautiful settings. The animal viewing and scenic views are amazing. The only restaurant in the awesome surroundings needs proper management, supervising the poorly trained, or is it demotivated? staff? Customers sit and wait patiently consumed by...nature's beauty but many a time forgotten to be serviced by staff, especially during peak times. Please get your act together! We are timeshare owners often bringing our guests and feeling ashamed for the pathetic service rendered. This restaurant has potential to do much better if you improve your service.More

Great staff, friendly and helpful. Good food and an amazing location overlooking the river. Food was well presented and good pricing. Drinks not expensive either. Sitting watching the sun go down across the crocodile river and Kruger park with a cold beer was just amazing.

Great location in the Ngwenya Lodge complex and perfect for sundowners as located on the banks of the Crocodile River adjacent to Kruger Park with animals coming down to drink. The cocktails were huge and good value for money ranging from R45 to R95 ....The food menu is good and so is the food, large portions and have a pizza oven on hand.More

This is a very sad place. Beautiful view. Management should consider turning this into a picnic spot. The restaurant is totally unusable and useless. How the are still in business is beyond belief. Please don't eat here. I was really very sick. Thanks Chris van...Zyl.More

Sadly this place, it's staff & their kitchen (clearly no chef in there) all need serious training in food, hospitality & service as neither of these even remotely resemble a restaurant - food was bleak at best & waiting forever for terrible food - and...then there's the price to pay for this vitriol 😟More

Absolutely shocking attempt at a Christmas buffet. All three courses were inedible. At R380 per head it was a complete rip off. Chef, if they even have one should be fired and the management who I assume do quality control need to be force fed...the food. A toasted sarmie and a bowel of shop bought custard would have done the trick betterMore

Beyond bad. You literally have to beg for service. The table was filthy the menus equally so. Then breakfast off the menu is not available, you get directed to a buffet which I can only compare to something from the army. Just worse. The staff...are totally unhelpful and uninterested. It's really a pity because the view is unbeatable.More

The food is great and service very good. Access to smoking area and toilets difficult as there are stairs. Wish they would make these accessible.

Waited 45 minutes for a plate of chips. Chips came raw and unsalted as if they were thrown into a fryer and puller out in seconds to heat them and then thrown into a takeaway container. Chips are soaked to the core with oil, showing...they have not spent enough time in the fryer or on the drip trays. Potjie comes highly recommended but for R95 all you get is some gravy estimated cost R2.00(no bloody meat, not one piece), 75% rice probably only cost R1.50and vegetables on the side not even cooked in the potjie estimated cost R4....all of this for a R95 whopper. Money would have been better spent on a cheeseburger at McD. I will rather drive 40km to the nearest place to get food than deal with this. The fact that the manager tells me i am not the only complaint tells me they are doing jack to fix the problems. After 2 drinks i had to wait 30 minites for the bill that i asked for. I in actual fact had to get up and go pay at the front because no one was coming. Three tables got up and left after waiting A Family waited 30 minutes for a menu...a damn menu Then after asking for a lamp for their outside table they only reveived this after more than 20 minutes. A lamp that requires a lighter and 2 feet to carry it...20 minutes?!?!?!More

We often have drinks and meals at Le Fera when we stay at Ngwenya Logde. The restaurant has a lovely atmosphere, particularly outside on the deck. The staff are always very friendly and welcoming. Service is sometimes a little on the slow side, but we...are never bothered by that because we are on holiday. The food is generally good - we especially enjoy the pizzas and the buffet.More

I have a small family owned local business and this establishment took stock from me in January 2020. They have still to this day have not paid a cent and have had excuse after excuse. I have now decided that the money is obviously never...going to be paid so now I would just like to warn anyone else doing business with them to expect the same treatment. They told me that the manager that ordered from us was new and ordered from the wrong place. This, though did not stop them from accepting the stock, using it and failing to pay.

Stayed at Ngwenya. Staff very pleasant. Service slow. Food not very good. Breakfasts consistently cold for a big table and pizza very, very, very floury.

The setting is brilliant. The restaurant is on the banks of the Crocodile River. The service was good. The menu very limited, but I presume it is because off COVID-19. We had a steak. Not the best I had, but not bad as well.
