We arrived on a Thursday evening without a booking. Luckily we were able to get a table inside. There is an inner and outer seating area inside, we were in the outer section quite near the entrance and it was draughty and cold when people...left the door open. Service was good, the waitron knew her menu and answered all our questions. We both had mixed seafood and all was good. Good wine selection. Would recommend.More

Really couldn't fault it. Staff were incredibly friendly and helpful, lovely relaxing atmosphere, great wines and food, especially what was truly one of the best steaks I've had in my life. Just wish it wasn't half way around the world.

We returned 4 times in one week. The food was Superb. The service is top notch. Try the Hake Verde or Chicken stack. Or actually anything on the Menu 😀

Attentive service at an interesting venue in the centre of Wilderness. Prawn curry was delicious with lots of prawns. Sirloin steak very well cooked. Will return

We had dinner on both nights whilst staying in Wilderness and the food and service were excellent. We have been visiting for many years and the staff are so welcoming, friendly and professional. Our fish dishes were excellent….fresh and perfectly cooked. Lots of choice on...the menu. A great atmosphere. Looking forward to our evenings here next February.More

We visited here twice when staying in Wilderness, once for evening meal and then for breakfast. Staff were lovely and great service. We were a little disappointed with our evening meals (there was nothing in particular wrong with them but perhaps we expected something different...& we couldn’t decide what we fancied so that didn’t help). The menu is quite extensive so there is a lot of choice. Not wanting to leave an average review based on that, we decided to go for breakfast on another day and that was really good and great value for money. We would definitely return but perhaps we need to decide what we fancy before arrival.More
