Happy hour advertised from 4.30-5.30pm every day. Restaurant does not open until 5.30pm. (We arrived for happy hour and phoned the number on the door). Sat down at 5.40pm. Unhappy hour began. Wings were nasty - way too salty. Ribs were really nice - highlight...More

I really liked the salad bar. However $38.00 for a steak I expect top quality , not sinewy scotch filet- the baked potatoes was small and Luke warm? The steak knives are old and unpleasant to use- no wonder the place was almost empty. I...More

After a couple of friends recommendations we finally visited Serengeti. Reservation via cellphone was easy and we were greeted by name. The offer to sit next to the fireplace was welcoming and the service was swift. The 3course menue was tasty but I thoroughly missed...More

We thoroughly enjoyed the food, the atmosphere and service. Compared to the 'other' South African restaurant chain we won't mention here, Serengeti comes out tops in my opinion. Generous portions, and absolutely delicious. Try the calamari!
