Atrocious! Waited 1hour 10 mins for our dinner. Enquired several times about our order and the staff just pretended to go into into the back/kitchen area ;and never returned to update us on the status of the order.

We were on our way to the Eastern Cape and decided on Imperani to stay over, what a pleasant surprise! The room were most comfortable and very neat. Unfortunately no fridge as we prefer one for keeping some stuff and ice, cold. The garden was...neat and tidy. We experienced good service from friendly staff at the restaurant. The chef went the extra mile in preparing super lamb chops for us which was delicious! We liked the atmosphere and ambiance and would certainly recommend the place for an overnight stay. Thank you, we enjoyed our stay.More

This restaurant could be so good but it seems the owner is missing in action. The basics of welcoming the guest and being friendly are missing. Seems the staff are just interested in getting rid of you so they can go home. In Ficksburg there...are so few restaurants that they get away with that. On the plus side the food I had was good and affordable. The overall experience was disappointing.More

We did not even get a chance to eat here as after walking in and standing around for a couple of minutes and not being served I approached the desk but was ignored by the lady behind it. I asked if there was a table...for 2, she once again ignored me and then just walked away. A Guy then went behind the desk but he too ignored me and so my Husband and I decided we err not going to put up with type of shocking service and walked out and went to Cafe Chocolate for dinner for the second night in a row. ABSOLUTELY APPALLING!!!!!!More

This restaurant advertises a faux experience which it does not deliver on. The food is average at best and customer service is monumentally disappointing with small portions of food and rude servicemen. This restaurant has a 4 star rating but I highly disagree. This restaurant...is only convenient due to pricing but there could be a huge improvement. The employees are rude.More

We were a group of 11 people and our waitress struggled to cope. We actually assisted her by fetching drinks, getting ice, writing down our order. We did not mind and was in good fun, however someone else might not accept that. The food was...okay. My medium ordered steak came overcooked and bone-dry. The pap was dry and probably scraped from the bottom of the pot. The vegetables was good and the gravy with the pap oily and inedible. The garlic snails were very salty but okay. The Firecracker Pizza was tasty! I was given a slice, Very nice. Apparently the ox tail was also a winner! Maybe I was just unlucky with my dish and considering the large group, I should have maybe stuck to a Pizza.More

On our way from Clarens to Bethulie we stopped here for lunch. What a great surprise ! My wife and me enjoyed both our dishes. Excellent, fast and friendly service. Real value for money. Nice interior and private parking on the property.

Locals give a friendly service at very affordable prices. The accommodation is very good value for money and very popular for business people travelling through our area. Ficksburg is of course also a gateway to northern Lesoth and the Katse dam.

Imperani is a very welcoming business with fish ponds and marine decor outside and beautiful rustic wood on the inside. The food lives up to the style of the place but the service could use a bit of refinement. All in all we had a...great meal. Had to ask for our beverages 3 times before our server finally brought them--after our appetizer. The wonderful ambiance and food made up for the lack of top notch service. Would go there again and again.More
