Whenever we visit Wilderness, we love to have a meal or drink at the Views. The view at sunset must be one of the best in the country. We find the menu items to be quite pricy the last time we visited.

The food here is not very good. We had one evening meal and the quality is not what you would expect in a hotel, the prawns were particularly poor. Service was ok but a little slow. We chose to eat out.

We were here three times once for evening dinner and two times for a drink at the terrace during sunset. The service was great, they fixed us drinks that even weren't on the menu, very friendly!

We had dinner here and were really disappointed in terms of service (neither attentive nor quick) and most importantly quality of food (we had a salad where the salad leaves were dry, sometimes crumbled and tasted really old and a pasta which tasted very ordinary) and value-for-money (especially for South African standards where you usually get amazing food at decent...

We were a group of 10 for evening meal and watched the perfect sunset over the ocean from our well appointed table. Service was good and the meals equally as good. Great venue.

Apart from the service being a little slow, and the waiter not being sure what a 'lemon, lime and bitters' was (he did ask and made a very creditable mix), our lunch was well prepared and delicious. We had a mix of the light meals which we shared, and were very impressed. And the views, even on a cloudy, damp... More

Always a pleasure to visit The Views. The new menu, since re-opening after renovations, whilst small, is great, the food delicious and great value. This was our second visit since renovations and change of menu and we thoroughly enjoyed the food both times. Elegantly plated and delicious, the best mushroom consomme we've ever had .... plus delicious double chocolate mousse... More

The waiter that served our table was not trained at all. He could not give requested info regarding items on the menu. He called another waiter to assist him in this regard. The side plates and cutlery of some of the group were placed on the right hand side iso the left hand side of the guest. When the food... More

We were on vacation in Wilderness and frequented the restaurant for our meals around lunchtime. It offers great views of the ocean that provides a wonderful relaxing atmosphere.

A fixed menu so things might get boring if you were staying for a week or more. However the meals we had were very good and superb quality at reasonable prices. Staff were very willing and eager to please.Good views, good staff and good food - says it all.
