We stayed 2 nights at Sefapane Lodge and found the service good on the first night with the waiter at Tusk Bar being very attentive. The second day/night the service for dinner at Calabash was not great. How can a restaurant not have any of the wines ordered on a Friday evening? Mid week I understand but not at the weekend. Service at tusk bar also went down hill with different staff working. Lack of glasses for drinks was amusing and surprisingly they seemed to be able to provide the wine that the restaurant, 30 feet away, could not provide. Nice overall resort but could do with a service overall in the F&B outlets.

We had a nice evening with friends and family. It’s a pleasant location with live music on Saturday evening. The burger was nice, ostrich filet was tough and the vegetables were cold.

Had a meal here, but was not impressed with the steak on the skewer as the steak pieces had a lot of fat content and every piece was tough..My order was med to rare , which came okay.

Not one for giving reviews, let alone negative reviews. But this was poor. We were a family of 4. The place itself is really tired. I ordered a Peri Peri Chicken. What came out was lamely grilled/roasted chicken, with cold Peri Peri sauce in a pot beside it. A first and a last for me in one moment! My daughter ordered Macroni Cheese. The pasta was covered in sauce with a sprinkling of cold, stale, grated cheddar on top. It seems expecting for sauce or cheese to arrive warm is extraordinary. My son had a vegetarian wrap, which consisted of large chunks of vegetables which parachuted out of the end each time he tried to take a bite. It was. Really as bad as it sounds, unfortunately.

Good Morning Thank you for the feedback. I am very disappointed that we did not meet your expectations. Did you perhaps discuss your experience with the Waiter or Chef on duty while you were here? I have addressed the points raised to our Chef, and we will definitely improve. Kind Regards

We had dinner here and good was exceptional but fine. Prices were a little high for the quality provided and wine was expensive. On a Sunday evening in Phalaborwa choices are very limited so beggars can't be choosers!

Sefapane Lodge sucks. I also think that the staff is being oppressed. There is not flexibility in that place. I think Waiters and waitresses are being oppressed by their supervisor. I am working at the mines with extreme temperatures. I need to hidrate myself. So They cannot expect me to have only 2 drinks on my meal. I also suggest that water must be included in the lunch pack. At least 2 litres because Phalaborwa is a very hot place.

The last ten years I visit this hotel/restaurant for 1 or 2 times a year. Food is always good and tasteful. ( seen 4-5 diff chefs passing by ) I enjoyed it also again this time. Great place. Only little remark is we had one evening during our stay that there was a group from outside the hotel and that was to much for the employees.

We were underwhelmed by our dinner here. I ordered curry and it was not particularly flavorsome. My husband had a salad and the sauce was tainted with something that smelt like petrol. The waiter dealt with our complaints well, and amended the bill suitable. Out 8 year old however was very happy with her children's menu.

My husband and I come regularly to eat here for dinner and we always enjoy the food and service. For starter can recommend the ostrich carpaccio or mushrooms. For main I can recommended fillet or also the chicken curry is very nice. You don't have to stay at the lodge to eat here. It's an open air restaurant so if it's a bit chilly would recommend to bring a jersey.
