Pleasant surprise to enjoy a fine dining restaurant in Polokwane. Excellent food, service a little bit slow in between courses but acceptable. Whilst most people were well dressed some hotel guests would come in as if they came from the beach which is regrettable. This restaurant has the potential to become a recognisable feature to be visited in Polokwane for people who enjoy fine dining and dressing up.

Excellent! Very high class restaurant, great personal service. The food (lamb, meat, curry, prawns) were incredible. Best lamb I've eaten in South Africa. Prices a bit high, but worth if for a luxury diner.

Terrible service today. Waited 20 mins to be sitted and once sitted and ordered, wine came only with the meal. You can imagine the wait. To top it up, after finishing my meal and the glass of wine, it took more than 15 min for someone to notice that i had finished. This is with a lot of staff passing by my table all the time. At this stage i just wanted to go. Perhaps dining alone is not considered good business.

Our group of friends decided to have a meal together before everyone went on holiday for December. Everything went great. The starters were exceptional as always. But then disaster struck. 2 of my friends ordered salmon. Asked specifically for the salmon to be rare. When it finally arrived the salmon was overcooked. The waiter brought the chef to the table to explain. The chef explained that is how they served salmon and that is that. Take it or leave. I do not think we will ever return. And this attitude from a 5 star hotel...... It really spoiled a wonderful evening.

Dear Johan. Thank you so much for your feedback and your continuous support of Saskia Restaurant. I want to sincerely apologise that your experience and the level of service you received was not to your expectation. I think that there might have been a miscommunication between the chef, waiter and your table. The Salmon dish that used to be on the menu was a grilled salmon. The new preperation style is a salmon fillet that is poached in a white wine and stock poaching liquid, therefore due to this cooking method the salmon will not be rare on the inside. Regardless the waiter should have explained clearly and have given the guests the option to have their salmon grilled. I sincerely hope that you would return to Saskia again and give us the opportunity to treat and spoil you in true Saskia style. Regards Janine

Nare our waiter was fantastic, had dinner last night with my partner and I was rather disappointed with the reboiled stale butter nut, that tasted like it had been in the fridge for weeks. It was rotten, the prawns were stunning though. The major let down was the hard old cheese cake, I couldn't even eat it. Didn't even feel like complaining coz I didn't want to ruin the night for my partner and give nare a hard time as she did her absolute best. I left broken hearted coz I expected more from a 5 star establishment. The non flushing female toilet didn't help either😔

Thank you very much for the positive complement on Nare’s service and constructive feedback regarding your meal. It is imperative that we receive feedback in order ot ensure that we address any shortcomings and to offer a exceptional memorable experience at Saskia. We apologize that your evening was spoiled because of the taste of the food. We are happy to hear that you enjoyed the prawns but still this not make up for your distaste for the butternut or the cheesecake. I can assure you that the butternut was freshly prepared on the day as this is not something we would keep overnight even it might just be a lack of spices and flavors on the evening. The cheesecake is a new york style baked cheese cake and is harder than a normal fridge cheesecake and is covered with macadamia, white chocolate and a brittle crust. As it is our signature dessert it is favorite amongst our regulars and I am disheartened that you did not experience it in this way. Nevertheless the necessary corrective action and procedures have been put in place to avoid a similar complaint. I sincerely hope that you would come back again give us the opportunity to treat you in true Saskia style with wonderful memories and flavors in the back of your mind when you leave

Wine list pricing ridiculous, no selection of proper wine glasses to match the menu and pricing. 400 to 600% markup ... Expecting a “fine dining” take on the chuck, only to be left wanting .. iv had better meals from a pub at a fraction of the cost. I feel totally ripped off.. certainly won’t see me again!

Thank you very much for your feedback as it is only through constructive feedback that Saskia can continue to improve our service offering. Please accept our sincerest apology for your dissatisfaction. We would love to welcome you back to Saskia Restaurant in the near future to treat and serve in you in true Saskia style. I do however disagree with your perception of some of the points you have raised. I would like the opportunity to explain why. Saskia is a Rasa and international award-winning restaurant and is a successful restaurant serving guests for more than 12 years. I believe a great part of this success is our ability to cater for the fine dining needs of the Polokwane public and regular guests from all over that frequent the establishment. It is for this reason that our wine list has a selection of 80 different local and international wines marked up by the normal restaurant mark up and ranging in price from R180 a bottle to R18000 per bottle with the aim of offering a good wine selection and a special experience no matter what the budget. It is the trend in restaurants to serve both red and white wines in a universal glass, however, should you have preferred a larger red wine goblet there is most definitely available upon request. In line with the wine list our a la carte menu offers substantial meat dishes including curries, lamb shanks, oxtails and meat dishes like the “shisha n yama” which is some of our best sellers in the meat eating Limpopo that is difficult to present in a fine dining way – but there is a beautiful balance with the selection of our amazing fine dining dishes including seared salmon with a salsa Verde, duck fillet, burnt onion consume, stuffed chicken supreme, compressed beef short rib and an array of decadent desserts that also caters for the more discerning palette. The team is well versed on explaining these dishes and would have been happy to recommend these. I believe you are well travelled and a passionate diner and therefore you should agree that R450 per person for most of our main course dishes with a starter and dessert is more than reasonable. Once again we will endeavor to always meet the requirements and expectations of our guests and we are dismayed that you did not enjoy your experience with us

It’s a very nice place I won’t lie but the issue was dress code.. I was wearing a short and big blouse to cover the short but I wasn’t allowed to enter bcz of that, but someone with a short dress same as bum short was allowed… It made me feel uncomfortable and not valued like I’m some sort of trash or not decent..

Excellent decor and surroundings. Food was good but rather pricey, wine even more so. Staff is friendly but could be more attentive to diners sitting outside.
