We are a family run, authentic PUB & GRILL in Malelane. Offering really great food at affordable prices. We have been operating for just over 16 years, and enjoy great support from locals and travelers alike. For many people, popping in to Duck 'n Dive on their trip is a tradition, they cannot miss enjoying our signature "Escargot Pizza" and a pint of freshly poured Ice cold beer. Our rumps are aged to perfection, our prawns are decent size, & all pizzas are made from scratch then fired in our wood burning oven. Air-conditioning is a priority, parking is plenty and free! All customers enjoy free, unlimited wi-fi. If you fancy a quieter setting, then take the stairs to our "Upper Duck", which

Really had a blast there. Great food, good cold beers, friendly and funny staff, cool owner (and his mom). Went there five different nights. Just had to try different menu items. Great chef and great value. US dollars went a long way there. Good atmosphere...and amazing fun. Gavin is the host with the most and a great English bloke. Cant wait to stop by on my next visit. Cheers!More

We were 6 friends that stopped for lunch. We were warmly greated by the owner and quickly had some cold craft beers and G&T's on tap delivered to our table. The 4x4 pizza is a great way to choose any 4 of your favorite pizzas...to then have a 1/4 of each. The escargot pizza is quite unique and very tasty. The vibe and smiles from all the customers confirmed that all enjoyed their meals. I can highly recommend Duck and Dive Saloon when in Malelane.More

Nice place with parking outside. Went on our first night in SA. Pizza was good but not hot enough but they fixed it, friendly service and nice conversation.

Annually our cycling group stops at Duck n dive. This is already a given stop and people object if we do not stop there. Amazing pizzas, good vibe very friendly and welcoming people. The local community welcome visitors and make us feel at home. Thank...you for accommodating us with bicycle racks. Hopefully this will now invite more people on bicycles to your establishment.More

Malalane does not have plenty of bars or restaurants not connected to Lodges. This one is serves good beer, and fine pizzas. Just be aware that South Africans seems to love cheese. If it's not your favorite I would ask them to go light on...it :-)More
