In fairness to the restaurant, I must point out that we visited on the first day following a very long new year weekend, so it was understable that many items were out of stock. Waitron was welcoming, friendly and provided good service. Food choice was limited to what was available. Calamari, wrap, halloumi, chicken livers and a salad - all... More

Prompt service, fresh tasty food, the meat is great and so are the deserts! The garden is a plus and so is the cozy fire during the winter !

This restaurant in Malkerns has a great view over an expansive lawn opening on to sugar cane fields. There is modern art, a small botanical garden, and some interesting shops. The food is good but the service is a bit slow. The overall experience, however, is delightful.

The setting in the grounds of house on fire is just stunning. There is a huge menu including local food. I had the mixed gril which was tasty.

If you want a laid back restaurant/bar experience in Swaziland far from the crowd this is the place to be. It can get a bit crowded if some of the tables are "reserved" by people who can take ages to come.

The food here is good wholesome food. The menu is brought on a blackboard. I had oxtail which took me back to visiting my Grandmother as a child - delicious. Service was good and friendly. Give it a try if nearby.

Thank Alan C
