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.

The food variety is above expectations. My fillet was cooked to perfection and the apple crumble out of this world! My lasagne was delicious and everything else looked scrumptious. Food is very well priced and service was good, very nice restaurant

The location is very good and you have your meal with a great landscape. The fooid is average but for a fair price. The service is the average africa service.

The staff we're nearly rude, barely looked at you, we felt uncomfortable askimg for anything. They didn't smile once. All and all makes you feel very unwelcome

The atmosphere, scenery and delicious food make Malandela's Farmhouse Restaurant a must visit place in Swaziland. The fried mozzarella and apple crumble dessert cannot be missed. Best to go here for sunset, or to sit around the open fire pit and warm up with a cocktail.
