We booked for the fine dining restaurant and we were pleasantly surprised by the ambience, the service and the food. We were expecting a typical pizzeria but this was far better. I would highly recommend the Osso Bucco.

What a great place to go for a few hours. The restaurant is right next to the parkway with only a glass wall separating one from the parkway. The service is great and the food just as good. we had a lamb shank and an oxtail. Both were most tasty and full of flavor. The waiter named pardon was exceptionally... More

Off the beaten track is most likely how one would describe this establishment at the Wonderboom Airport. It is in operation for decades and offers well prepared food in a wonderfully decorated restaurant with a cosy and relaxed feel to it. They have a comprehensive wine list, well trained staff and the cherry on top: live music over weekends. Not... More

Being an aircraft fanatic helped! The very spavious, modern, cleanand sterile room perched on the second floor overlooking the airport apron. Imagine being woken at 06:00am every morning by the APU of the... More

I ordered a light lunch prior to catching a flight. A simple order for calamari took about 40 mins. When the dish arrived it smelled of fish and after one bite I stopped eating as it tasted bad and the textures were mushy. Service was so slow that it would not have been possible to order another dish. The waitress... More

We often have dinner on Friday evenings here with our kids. The food is really good with a very large variety. Kids can make their own pizzas in the kiddies kitchen. The play area is very large and gives the adults some time to talk to each other. Their pizzas, pastas, fish and steak are all very good. They even... More
