Brilliant food. Excellent service. Blue Olive burger a must. Giant mushroom starter simply delicious. Lovely evening under the tree!

The food was absolutely amazing and the service was really on point. This has become one of my favourite restaurants when I come for a break in Wilderness. All I can say is, try this restaurant when you're in Wilderness. You will not be disappointed.

I spent 8 days in Wilderness and went back every day. Try their burgers - fantastic! Highly recommended. Waiters are young, vibrant, friendly - I didn't go anywhere else so I can't compare because they ticked all my boxes!

We've had good (not great) experiences at this restaurant before but this time around it was very disappointing. On the day of our visit there was no water in the village. These things happen. The waiter was very apologetic about that and of course we understand these things - who can control a pipe burst? What was not acceptable was... More

Busy restaurant. Food was good and vegetarian options were adequate. But they were understaffed and the service was lacking. Had to wait a long time to get the attention of the waiter who was obviously over worked. Great location.

Nice variety of tasty tapas plus lots of other food choices. Pleasant atmosphere on the upper patio. Service was prompt and friendly however both our orders had errors in them. Still, we enjoyed our meal and the bill was reasonable overall, so I have no concern with recommending this restaurant.

Dinner. Kudu steak grilled to perfection accompanied by a good spread of roast veg. Excellent chips. Waiting staff soooo pleasant. Relaxed atmosphere. Great background music. Popular music over the years

Beautiful location and interior. Great outside seats. The staff are very friendly. As great as the menu looks, everything we ordered, from drinks to food were out of stock!

This restaurant has a prime position in Wilderness under beautiful trees. We went for breakfast and unfortunately it was very poor. The waiter was either new or not trained, and had no idea of waiting etiquette. Unfortunately there was no manager in sight, able to assist and train him. Despite there only being 2 tables, the service was exceptionally slow.... More

We wanted to have dinner and were helped to a table fairly quickly. We waited for 20 minutes with no sign of a waiter to just give us a menu to start with. The waiters passed us but nobody stopped to ask if we were helped. After 20 minutes we stood up and walked out and went to the restaurant... More
