As per their website we were excited to go for an al La carte breakfast and booked ahead as advised . On getting there however we were advised that it was a buffet breakfast, I wish the lady had told me this on booking the...previous day as I really don’t enjoy buffet . Request a table outside on the patio as the inside gets very noisy . Beautiful view .More

While the dinner was a group event after a long day's work, I can assure you the meal was a personal affair. The location is lovely and soacipus grounds within the big 5 reserve and driving there and back was a safari on its own....Wildlife roaming freely everywhere and abundantly. Back in the bush hut over the wetland on the dinner table, the chicken liver starter was tasty as my mum's and the best part in my steak. The meat ordered was medium well. It was going doing beautifully with the red wine. The taste and texture of the meat was the best ive ever tasted yet. Even better than an angus ribeye I recently had at a famous steakhouse. Eventhough my steak was missed by the kitchen and came last, I never held it against them and the meal was worth the wait. Hats off to their kitchen staff.More

Great location and beautifully maintained. Bushbuck and birds! Food was good, but for the prices you would expect a lil better service and much better vegetable option. Don’t eat much meat but tried the Cape Malay curry with prawn and chicken... chicken pieces were a...lil too much for me. Husband loved the beef tenderloin but not with the cranberry... best to ask for that on side. Tried Mojitos, and we always seem to forget to ask for drinks on rocks, since we moved here, not frozen.... but many like itMore

I made a dinner reservation for 4 on 1 January 2020. This was not the first time we had dinner at the Kingfisher. I have also brought foreign visitors in the past and received very good feedback. On previous occasions we had a pleasant and...well-rounded experience. Unfortunately this was not the case the last time we were there for dinner. On arrival 5 minutes before our booked time, the table was not set and despite informing the waiter receiving us that we had a reservation in my name, the person receiving us made no effort to check whether we had a reserved table at the restaurant. He then asked where we wanted to sit and we opted for a table on the veranda out of direct sunshine. The table was not cleared but the waiter undertook to have it reset immediately. 20 minutes later the table had still not been reset. Crumbs and leftover plates and cutlery from the previous guests were still on the table when we received our meals and was removed after our meals were placed. Two couples arrived after us and had broadly the same experience - seated at unprepared tables. It started raining and due to the waiters making no effort to close the canvas covers, the guests at the tables along the verandah railing had to abandon their tables and move inside. Our orders were taken and correctly delivered albeit at a very slow pace. The food was prepared as requested but somehow did not meet the previous standard in terms of taste and level of attention. The moment the meals were placed, we were inundated by flies and we had to continually wave them off. The waiters made no efforts to place out insect repellent candles and there was also not a bug-zapper or fly-trap anywhere near the restaurant. Not a pleasant experience. Towards the end of meal and about 80 minutes after our allotted reservation time, another staff member came around with the reservations list to confirm whether I perhaps had a booking. We declined dessert and coffee and left after paying. Unless the level of service and attention to detail is jacked up, this usually excellent restaurant if going to start losing clientele for sure.More

In a mall this restaurant may have scored an average rating. The food is not really memorable, but sitting on the deck is ! Coming from the city and being surrounded by the weavers, herons and one large hippo gives a lunch a different feel...to it ! Be sure to book for Sundays and public holidays and specify the deck if you want the view and outdoor atmosphere. I ate the tempura hake and chips. A large portion was served piping hot and crispy, however it was a bit oily for my liking. The creme brulee was somewhat heavy and lacking flavour. My partner's steak was average.More
