Everyone has a favorite restaurant that serves great food, has good service and always has availability. Henris is one of these places. We live a couple of km from Henris and go there relatively often. We love trying out new places and there is no lack of choice around the region, but come summer time and locals get forgotten about... More

We love going to Henri's - the service is excellent and the fact that the owner is always there to receive you adds such a great personal touch to the entire experience. The food is great, and ambiance is good too. Great place for a laid back dinner. They have a good selection of wines available, and have good quality... More

Despite the location, Henri's is a great spot for a good meal. We had a great lunch sitting out on the veranda. My calamari was excellent and the rest of the family thoroughly enjoyed their meals as well. Serv ice was good and friendly. Recommend you give it a try.

We have visited Henri's a number of times in the past but for some reason didn't eat there last year. What a mistake and one not repeated this year because it was one of the first restaurants we booked when arriving just after Christmas. We think this meal with friends was the best that we have ever enjoyed there. That's... More

It all started really well with the duck liver parfait, followed by a completely inedible kudu fillet. Husbands meal was ok. They were very good and took the meal off the bill (as you would expect) and gave me a complementary pud. Can't fault the waiters and service but that meat should never have left the kitchen so unfortunately just... More

Hot weather 37 Celsius. Nice garden with shadow. Lunch menu is cheap. Try Chicken quarter with onion rings and fries ( medium spicy style) Well baked and nice taste - not like European plastic chicken !!!!

Wonderful experience from start to finish. Staff were polite and attentive and the welcome from everyone was warm. We were given beautiful and interesting canapés to start with and a glass of bubbles each. The menu was lovely with great choices and everyone was impressed with the food. The price was very good value (not always the case at New... More

I'd avoided Henri's for years, for no better reason than I was under the mistaken impression that it was an average steakhouse. That, it is definitely not, and I'm sorry we didn't explore it sooner. This has to be the finest dining for many, many kilometres, at a far more reasonable price that one would expect for the quality and... More

Lovely, relaxed atmosphere with lots of families enjoying their meal. The food was excellent though our server was a little offhand and was clearly offended when my husband asked for his steak to be cooked a little longer. That was a shame because otherwise we had a great experience!

The outside area is a such cozy area. We had a table booked for inside area but when we arrived we decided to seat outside and the service was amazing as inside. Our waitress was very friendly and prompt to help us. The menu is not too extensive but with all you need to an amazing dinner. Worth a visit
