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!

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...More
