Tried everything on the menu at least once over the past few years, everything been very nice, especially the steak and veggies.

Great food and service. Great place for a calm night. We were a large group, but this would be a nice place for couples as well.

Nice place...little dam, Impala grazing while you sit and eat around you. You can choose to sit outside. Also nice for conferences. Very tranquil. Next to the river. You can also Google Machauka Lodge. "Shrink" is Machauka's Coffee "Bar".

I had a cheese cake dessert with my wife and it was so delicious and i did really enjoy it very much. She can't wait to visit the restaurant again and the only thing she has been saying is the cheese cake

This was one of the first debates I've had with myself during a meal. I'm trying to decide if I have ever eaten a better fillet rossini before. The answer is no. Tonight's fillet was the best. An absolute must try restaurant. Classy and reasonably priced dinner. Well-done to chef Nelson.
