We found the staff extremely helpful, I would have to say it was the best meal we had experienced in Perth. I would recommend the Botswana steak - cooked exactly what the menu said. Wil be recommending this Restaurant to all our Kiwi friends.

The food was brought out in a decent amount of time and the quality was fantastic, may be a little pricey, but suppose it is in hillarys and you basically pay... More

Did not even try to find an option to sit us earlier because he didn't feel like it.12 !!!tables were free and being regular customers we never had problems before. He was obviously enjoying his sense of entitlement. He... More

The idea of getting a big lump of meat is a good one. The steaks are as they promise and high quality. All of our group were happy with the meals. It was good quality. The service was very good. The staff were happy, efficient & friendly. The African feel falls a bit short after reading the menu. The dishes... More

The tastiest food that I have ever had. Comfortable and relaxing atmosphere. You do need to book in advance as the restaurant does get busy.

I think the Safari Menu is back last month, which is really worthy of trying, especially the buffalo meat, surprisingly juice and tender 

Visited Hippo Creek for a business dinner, with a South African and Japanese work-mates. Definitely recommend you try and visit this restaurant with a South African "local" and get them to recommend some of the dishes. Starters were boerewors and chicken livers for the table, both were nice with a spicy sauce. I had lion kill for main (steak and... More

We were here twice, fist visit was better overall, dont know why though. The meat was simply perfect, my boyfriend is big meat lover, so he was in a heaven. The place is busy, so it can take long to bring your food, but it is worth it!! The decoartion and atmosphere is great and I love it here..
