Absolutely enjoyed our lunch and dinner. The location is beautiful, from the entrance to the service. Lover the variety the menu had and truly enjoyed their " Salt and pepper calamari. " Thank you for the beautiful meal and experience, my family and I will be back soon.

If you ever find yourself in Phalaborwa and you are looking for good food, head towards the Bushveld Terrace. Great atmosphere, and delicious fare. If I were a food critic they get my golden fork. Adriaan, the chef of this establishment knows his way around food. We ordered the pork belly. Great presentation and full of flavour. It was soft and juicy with a generous helping of crackling that scrunched to the bite. The veggies was full of flavour and steamed to perfection. I ordered a Cremé Bruleé and it was absolutely lovely. My partner head the chocolate brownies which was delicious though the presentation could do with a rethink. Overall a very pleasant experience which one might not expect in a place called Phalaborwa. Well done.

Great dinner on the terrace under a big tree and next to a bonfire. Excellent kudu fillet served with a delicious apricot sauce. The wine was really good and served in an ice bucket. The waitress was really friendly and proactive. A great experience

We booked this place mainly because of the great reviews. We booked a game drive and boat cruise through Thuli. Nothing was booked and she did not let us know of that fact. She had encouraged us to make a reservation for dinner on the day we arrived, when we got to the restaurant, no reservation was made for us. Utterly disappointed with this place and now everything we wanted to experience is fully booked. Would never recommend this place to anyone. Service also extremely slow.

Dear Rhudzani, I am truly saddened to read of your experience at our hotel & restaurant. Having addressed this with our team it seems everything imaginable went wrong and you experienced the very worst we could offer. I cannot apologize enough. Please know without doubt that our intention is to give the best possible service to each and every person who stays or dines with us. I realize it does not make your experience any better, but hope for your understanding. I hope that maybe you can come back another day to see the better side of us. Sorry once more!

20 minutes after ordering 2 waters and 2 ice tea without receiving them or anyone taking our food orders, we learned that the lady who had taken our drinks orders had gone home in the meantime. Nice. Another waitress took out food orders and promised that from now on, things would be quick. An hour later, the first 2 of 6 dishes came out. 15 minutes later 3 more. My pasta didn't even come after an hour and a half. Food itself very average, bechamel sauce on snails tasted fishy. We decided to not take the pasta and rather didn't finish our food.

Dear Biltong77, Thank you for taking the time to write your review. Naturally, comments like yours are quite distressing and will always elicit a close investigation. Upon viewing our CCTV cameras' time stamps and talking to our staff, we can validate your complaints in that the service you received was not what we expect from our staff and not how our they have been trained. From the time of ordering, your drinks took 12 minutes to reach your table; that is seven minutes longer than our allocated time allowance and therefore not acceptable. In yesterday's heat, it surely felt a lot longer. We then allow for 20 minutes from the time a customer orders their meals until the time he/she receives it. After ordering your meals, the first two dishes were delivered in 26 minutes, the next three six minutes later. Again, these times do not meet our expectations and so we will continue to work with our service team and kitchen staff to meet these targets, using your unfortunate experience for training. I don't need to explain this to you, but the waitress forgetting to order your pasta dish is inexcusable for which I can only apologise. This was, of course, the proverbial cherry on the cake. Sadly, all this has left you with a very bitter taste in your mouth. We can only ask that you return again one day to experience the levels of service and customer satisfaction to which we aspire. Should you agree to give us the opportunity to change your perception of us, please feel free to contact us in advance (dave@bushveldterrace.co.za or debbie@bushveldterrace.co.za) so we can mollify you and your family in person. Thank you for your time. Yours sincerely, Dave & Debbie Turner.

The last time I was here with my family was in 2015 and I was so excited about coming here because our last visit was amazing and the food was expectional. The food fell below expectations. I don’t know what happened to the restaurant. We were served burnt hake and chips, cold crème brûlée, ribs that were drenched in sauce and not throughly cooked, and rotten pepper sauce. I acknowledge the cakes were fantastic, truly enjoyed the Red Velvet cake and the Bar One cake.

As a family we had a lovely lunch at the restaurant, everyone enjoyed their meal so much, we decided we would return for a dinner. We arrived, the table we had booked was not available, we opted for another one inside. After a 30 minute wait, we still had no drinks. We left… it was disappointing after a lovely lunch.

Dear Claudia W, Thank you for the review. I'm naturally distressed that you couldn't have a repeat of your good lunch experience at dinner. Though this is by no means an excuse, we had a bumper weekend (it was a long weekend in SA) and our hotel and restaurant were fully booked Friday, Saturday and Sunday. Service times were naturally stretched throughout though 30 minutes is indeed a long time to wait for drinks. Can I please ask you to e-mail me directly (dave@bushveldterrace.co.za) with a little more information, such as roughly the time of day you came for lunch and which evening it was you were here for dinner? Also letting me know in which section you were seated will help. This way I can look into what went wrong. If you are still in Phalaborwa, please feel free to call in so you can get a second opportunity to experience the service we strive for. I look forward to hearing from you. Kind regards, Dave & Debbie Turner.

We were so looking forward to a dinner at this restaurant as the website and menu looked amazing. The setting was great - nice ambiance. HOWEVER! We arrived at 18:30 and immediately placed our orders. By 20:00, we hadn’t received our food. We left hungry and had to opt for the one fast food restaurant that was open. Furthermore, the glasses were dirty. The waiter brought the wrong wine TWICE! Extremely disappointing

We spent 3 nights here and we had an absolutely wonderful time. All the staff are so friendly and the rooms are spacious and clean. We felt like family here for 3 days. The food is way above standard, the presentation of each dish is amazing. We will most definitely be back. Thank you to every single person who works here for doing a fantastic job!!

I had to urgently attend an online meeting on route to a family gathering in Letaba Rest Camp. The manager arranged Wi-Fi and a quite table in the dining room. After completion of my meeting my wife and I had lunch on the open veranda and the food and service were excellent. The portions were generous and the prices reasonable. We will definitely visit again.

If you ever find yourself in Phalaborwa for whatever reason, make sure you include this place on your list. The chef of this place will do Gordon Ramsay proud. The food is imaganitive, packed with flavour, and in a place you would not expext. Maybe Sandton or Cape Town, but this place does not stand baxk. The Créme Bruleé is simply next level. Presentation match the taste, and I salute you, Mr Chef. You get my Golden Fork. The kudu fillet, was simply divine, cooked to perfection, and the flavour profile was imaganitive and excellently executed. Add another wine or 2 to the winelist, and this would be unbeatable. I am impressed. And the price? Reasonable without a doubt. Keep it up.
