This is a great place, with and even better view of thousand hills. The staff was super helpful and the food even better. I was pleasantly surprised by the quality and taste of the food. The atmosphere and cleanliness of the place is brilliant. Worth...visiting when in the area.More

Very disappointing. I called in mintinues before arriving to ask if they where opened, they me yes till kitchen closes at 3.30. I said great I'm coming on my way, the lady on the call never mentioned had to make reservation. I even looked at...the website and Facebook before planning to come. Made a special trip to sit and see the view at the award reviewed site. I didnt argue but note they was not even busy but was told they are fully booked. Well they dont need customers! support the phezulu restaurant rather great food and view with excellent service and better activities and environments is great.More

Good day I am terribly sorry for your experience. Sundays are extremely busy and we are still working with only half our seating capacity due to government law. Unfortunately it is advisable to book for a Sunday. If you were informed that we were fully...More

Lovely setting. Of our group all but one had a good experience. We discovered the chef does not know how to cook fish, unless you like yours like leather. Taitress apologized and said they were extremely busy hence the possible over cooked fish. Definitely wasn't...worth the moneyMore

Good day Unfortunately this was nothing to do how the chef cooks it. We contacted the supplier and it definitely was the quality of the product. We are now sticking Sea Harvest from a different supplier. My griller has worked for me for 15 yrs...More

Have to admit being somewhat distracted as visited on the day of the World Cup rugby final! It wasn't as busy as usual (probably because of the rugby) but a good venue to meet friends half way between Pmb and Durban. Service was great and...our waitron was very attentive even with water. Nice laid back venue for breakfast with a great view.More

Wonderful views, superb meal, great staff. We sat comfortably looking over the Valley of 1000 Hills, in the sun and enjoyed a wonderful meal with good coffee. A definite place to go and eat.

After visiting the Zulu show up the road, stopped here for an included lunch. The red wine was very nice, no idea what make it was as it was by the glass. Husband had the beef pie, which had an enormous, oval shaped, flat pastry...lid, whilst the pie underneath was in a smaller, round dish. Husband said it was like a peppery stew. I had the vegetarian burger which came missing the mushroom sauce stated in the menu, but I asked for a salad dressing instead. The burger was tiny, the bun was huge. Tasted OK, nothing special. The potato wedges we both had were very nice and crispy. The service was slow, but there were 17 of us and the waiter was very pleasant. The view was nice, but I wouldn't say it was amazing, as the natural beauty has been spoilt by buildings littering the hillsides.More

Sunday lunch today was disappointing for a few reasons. Not all items on the a la carte menu were available. Waitress although friendly overshared somewhat her single parental status which may have been a ploy to get a bigger tip. Our pot pies were served...in what looked a dessert bowl instead of a pie dish which was very different from the last time we visited. No management presence to check on us during our 2 hour visit. The view was great as always and we appreciated the live music.More

Great views, ample parking, area for kids to run around, nice building. Lovely local craft beer. Food the least good part but still fine.

I was visiting my elderly dad in Hillcrest for 2 weeks from Canada and we decided to drive out to the Pot and Kettle for Friday lunch. Wonderful views, seated on the covered veranda. For a Friday, they were quite busy. The meals for the...4 of us were: spicy chicken livers, fish and chips, pepper steak pot pie and chicken pot pie. Everything was delicious, so mouthwatering. Super service, friendly staff. Super relaxing atmosphere, no rush whatsoever. Great service and to be able to see the wildlife (monkeys) darting in and out of the trees and under tables out on the patio was fantastic. Will definitely recommend and will go again before I leave SA back to Canada.More
