If one is looking for superb steaks and good service in a safari environ then look no further than Buffalo Pub and Grill! Where some restaurants have " gone big " in order to create more turnover,the owners here have kept it quaint and non crowded so one has some personal space whilst enjoying the superb meals on offer!! Fantastic... More

We really enjoyed this restaurant and the food was just what is needed after a long day in the car. Simple and tasty. The service was excellent, especially our waiter who was friendly and chatty without overdoing it.

No ambience - felt like I was in a canteen. Waitress was friendly but not confident. Menu offers a huge variety. The food, however, left one feeling like we were actually eating canteen food - it was merely been thrown on the plate with no attention to seasoning or presentation. Precooked, tasteless chicken wings drizzled with a cheap bbq sauce.... More

The food portions are quite large and tasty. There is a wide variety and the option to go for small portions if you cannot eat a large quantity. Food was reasonably priced and the beverage list was quite good.

Certainly the pick of the places in Phalaborwa, great beer, good volume and excellent friendly service. Had carpatsio (I know it's spelt wrong but TripAdvisor does not have spellcheck ) Springbuck and crocodile, interesting taste and goes well with a few beers! Nice bar and seating area.

After a long day driving through the Kruger Park, we were looking for a comfortable and reasonably fast place to eat. This place was within walking distance from our hotel and the smells invited us in. The hamburgers when we eventually got them were great and obviously home made. The problem was the length of time it took for everything... More

The main problem we had was that my wife's food was given to someone else so she had to wait till we were finished before. Her food arrived. The waiter only explained the situation when asked why her meal was taking so long and the manager blatantly ignored the entire situation - poor indeed!! The ribs were average but the... More

The pub is very easy to find. The food is very good. The staff is friendly. The access for wheelchairs does not have an acceptable sloop, but because it is shot, this can be overcome. Thank you.

It is quite possible that my expectations were inflated because of the high rating this place has on TripAdvisor. I was disappointed. If this is the second best restaurant Phalaborwa has to offer, I have my doubts about this listing. Maybe I simply made the wrong choices from the extensive and interesting menu. There was nothing surprising about the "mushroom... More
