Being served Luke warm snails is not a good start. When I informed the waitress that I can't eat this, no attempt was made to correct the situation. Whom I assumed to be the manager or supervisor was sitting close to the entrance and avoiding any contact so as not to have to deal with any complaint. Rest of the... More

A true African Bosveld experience in a very interesting environment with a lookout over Lake Umuzi. Friendly staff greets you as you enter and leads you to a very spacious and comfortable sleeper table. Excellent menu with a wide variety of red meat, poultry, fish and even a Sushi bar. Generous servings that will satisfy even the biggest carnivore amongst... More

We had a family Sunday lunch and were pleasantly surprise with the buffet that catered for all of us with very tasty food from starters throughout till the desserts. Variety to pick and choose from! Staff was well trained and very well mannered as well as a great atmosphere! 5 STAR

This is a great place to eat and the venue is first class. We had lamb chops and they were very tasty and cooked to perfection. The only slight downside was the rather overweight waitress who was not exactly the epitome of efficiency !. We will certainly be back

The Bosvled Lapa is one of those restaurants where the service is poor but the food is so good that you just have to ignore that fact and go anyway. Many of the restaurants at Lake Umuzi have a pretty setting overlooking the lake. That is for Secunda at least! Because just beyond the lake is the view of the... More

We are looking for more ways to bring our typical South African cuisine to our guests supported by good service. It is not about being perfect...it is about making you feel at home.

Ive been here a few times and every time ive been it seems to get worse. The service isn't wonderful and food nothing to write home about. Décor and furnishings are looking very tired and place is really due for a total revamp. Think every time ive been there they never seem to get the side orders right. If we... More
