We had an excellent fillet steak and dessert at the Pioneer's Grill at it's new larger premises. The service was very good and the steak just "melted". I wished we had gone earlier in the holiday so that we could have gone more often - ah, well there is always next time!

Excellent service by our waiter Moses and very good food with generous portions. We were driving through to Burchells Bush Lodge and needed a quick supper. Very good choice.

Shame we only found this place on our last night. Sitting outside on the veranda our only downer was the mossy bites. But they are limited as to what they can do for that other than we sit inside. But onto the food. My steak was excellent, cooked just so med/rare, tender and succulent. Makes me want another just thinking... More

My daughter and I visited the Pioneer Restaurant in Sept 2015, where we received an outstanding steak, and lovely wine. Last week, my wife and I revisited the restaurant in its new premises along the road, and were left disappointed. The steaks themselves were lovely, however, as we'd waited around 45-50 mins for our main course to arrive, it was... More
