The food was really good. However not prefect. I've had better ostrich already, so considering the hefty price, I have to go with only four stars. The place can be recommended though without a hesitation

We as residents of Phalaborwa love to visit Bushveld Terrace Hotel just for a quick coffee/kooldrink break when the kids are in school. Atmosphere is very relaxed and staff and service is of top rate. Place is always clean and well maintained
