The menu looks good and the prices are very reasonable. The vegetarian dish we had was really good but I was not much of a fan of the fillet steak I had. Probably I should not expect much for 11€ for a 300g fillet. Still would go there again.

We took the family to Buffaloes, we ordered a t bone and when it arrives the food was cold. We sent it bak and then it came burnd en overcooked. My kids were told they cannot use the kids play area becuase they were to big for it. Not a friendly family place

O my! Had such a good laugh now!! Brascot you should ask your BIG kids to check your spelling before posting on Tripadvisor!! Just for your information we were closed since the 25th of December, so we dont know where you and your family ate a week ago!! It is so obvious that you are part of THAT group !! More

Not that many places to go in Phalaborwa, but every time we are around we go and have our favourite meal. Very good burgers and nice salads!

If one is looking for superb steaks and good service in a safari environ then look no further than Buffalo Pub and Grill! Where some restaurants have " gone big " in order to create more turnover,the owners here have kept it quaint and non crowded so one has some personal space whilst enjoying the superb meals on offer!! Fantastic... More

We really enjoyed this restaurant and the food was just what is needed after a long day in the car. Simple and tasty. The service was excellent, especially our waiter who was friendly and chatty without overdoing it.

No ambience - felt like I was in a canteen. Waitress was friendly but not confident. Menu offers a huge variety. The food, however, left one feeling like we were actually eating canteen food - it was merely been thrown on the plate with no attention to seasoning or presentation. Precooked, tasteless chicken wings drizzled with a cheap bbq sauce.... More

The food portions are quite large and tasty. There is a wide variety and the option to go for small portions if you cannot eat a large quantity. Food was reasonably priced and the beverage list was quite good.

Certainly the pick of the places in Phalaborwa, great beer, good volume and excellent friendly service. Had carpatsio (I know it's spelt wrong but TripAdvisor does not have spellcheck ) Springbuck and crocodile, interesting taste and goes well with a few beers! Nice bar and seating area.
