Having dined at Serendipity Restaurant on a few special occasions, it's still our #1 choice when it comes to fine dining. Unsurpassed 5* service and cuisine which just can't be matched anywhere else. Stunning setting as well on the river bank. Exceptional - you won't be disappointed!

We go to Serendipity whenever we are in the Wilderness. This meal was as good as always. The combination of ingredients and spices is sublime. Lizelle, the one chef, takes South African cuisine to a new level. The ambiance is quiet and dignified. Very sophisticated and special. A warm fire on a chilly winters night . They make it an evening to remember. We will return whenever we are in the Wilderness. Again and again

Our son booked this for a birthday celebration and it was a great experience.

Wonderful service from start to finish, guidance where requested on choosing your food and wine.

I know one couple who we suggested this restaurant to paid a visit and loved it - if you are in this area of South Africa book a table.

As we are regular visitors to the garden route we have eaten at many restaurants in the area. This however is something totally different. It is not a big restaurant. Think 12 tables maximum, so bookings are essential. Everything is 5 star. The service, the ambiance, the cleanness of the place, the food, the wine and the tasty aperitifs before dinner. A special touch is the chef coming to the table to explain the menu. The staff is extremely well trained and knowledgeable. All food is real South African dishes, but even for us as South Africans it had an awesome twist to the normal. Absolutely highly recommended
