Had a great dinner and fantastic birthday lunch of special prawns crab curry and peri peri chicken with ice cold 2M beer served in frozen glasses. Be prepared to pay as it's expensive but the foods great. Recommended.

Year on year we have been dining at this venue and year on year it's gone backwards and this place has lost its finesse. Sadly so.

We absolutely love this place! We are always greeted with a smile, the staff is great and very helpful and Hannes always makes sure that everyone is having the best possible experience. The seafood and the fact that there is always ice cold 2M is a great factor why we always will return!

Our first visit was 17 years ago! We could not wait to share the experience with our kids. It exceeded our expectations and the kids were highly impressed! Hope we do not have to wait 17 years again.

In a trip to Kruger we ate at ths place, which serves Mozambican food and believe me, they do serve the real deal. It is a great place to eat, I dare to say the best in the area.
