We were picked up from our guest lodge who had recommended and booked the table for us. The starter of calamari was very tasty. For our main course we ordered karoo lamb chops as we were told Karoo lamb was delicous. We had to wait for about 45 mins between courses. Eventually the lamb arrived with 4 chops on a skewer, seperated by lemon slices one of which was very near to the chump end bone. We were very disappointed as there was not much taste to them, also
they were over cooked and they certainly did not warrant the price. We have had tastier new zealand lamb bought in UK supermarkets.
Service was very slow and fawning when it came.
Would not recommend.

Great Food and service. Try the giant prawns. Waitresses really friendly and efficient. Good wine. Wish they were nearer to where I live!

Very nice restaurant about 10 minutes walk from our hotel. Very busy with a good ambiance. We had Ostrich which was very tender. Would certainly go back.

This is a quality medium priced restaurant within walking distance of Riverside Lodge. Tables are both inside and out, the service is good and the food choice and volume excellent.

We stopped here for some drinks. The service is good and the staff are friendly. The atmosphere is so relaxing. Next time we will definitely eat here.
