We were staying at the owners hotel called Hotel Numbi and they recommended we go there to try their well known aged steaks and they were just incredible for both me and my wife, who isn’t a great steak lover. We were also honoured as...the South African International Rugby Union team the Springboks all arrived in for dinner the same evening we were there so really says a lot for its reputation definitely.More

We enjoyed a fabulous meal here. The service was good. We were met at the door and seated right away. Our waiter was friendly and didn't rush us. Our kid's food arrived quickly and it was delicious. My husband and I both had steak (sirloin...and fillet) and vegetables....the food was really nice!More

Overall while some of the food was quite good. The ambiance and service was below average. We had the chicken wings as a starter and then a variety of mains including chicken schnitzel, pork chop, and steaks.

Had dinner at Pioneer's, close to our hotel. Food was good but certainly expected better. The place could do with an aesthetic update as well. The biltong was the best and will definitely go back just for this!More

If you find yourself in Hazyview, head over to Pioneers. It’s a very nice setting with indoor, outdoor dining. It’s one of the better steaks I have had in Africa. The chicken spaetzl was also good. The best was the chocolate brownie. They also have...a good selection of wine. The service was good and friendly.More
