This is a good place to eat in Wilderness. Fresh fish and some unusual combinations. A good selection of wines. The service was pleasant and helpful with advice. It was useful to be able to order a shuttle back to our hotel as we paid the bill.

If you want good seafood, you need look no further than The Girls seafood platter! Prawns cooked in 3 different sauces, calamari cooked to perfection and the grilled hake & kingklip were amongst the best cooked white fish I've ever tasted. Not at all pretentious and welcomes locals and tourists alike. Highly recommended!

We were well received by friendly staff despite not having a booking and they managed to find a spot for us. We had curries and were relieved to find that both were made from scratch and not from a pre-made paste. The flavours were fantastic and the veggies perfectly cooked. I very seldom have dessert but had to try the... More

The Venison I had was outstanding. My wife had a generous helping of prawns in a delicious sauce. This was a brilliant meal. The outside of the restaurant looks small - tucked away at the side of a petrol station. But the food is enough to draw a crowd. You will be wise to book

A strange location, behind the garage, but all the guide books recommended it and when we ate there we could see why. Amazing seafood and meat. Real friendly staff who wanted you to enjoy what you ordered.

We'd made a reservation before we told the host at our nearby beach house, and she smiled and said we wouldn't be disappointed. My hake was possibly the best i've ever tasted, cooked to perfection. The ice cream and puddings are really to die for too. We made a second visit a couple of nights later and it was just... More

This was our best dining experience in South Africa. We arrived late in wilderness and walked from our accommodation to view restaurant. We spotted this restaurant annexed to a petrol station! The manager greeted us even though we didn't have a reservation and accommodated us with charm. The place was buzzing and adorned with the most wonderful paintings of animals... More
