So good!

This place is charming. The food was de-li-ci-ous! They have oysters, meat carpaccio for starters, and a delicious filet trio as main course. You can also buy some typical souvenirs in there.

Since 10 years i organize trip in SA for paragliders, we always stop at The Girls restaurant and my clients says that it is the best one we ever visit on all our trip. A good mix with very good quality food and a modern way to prepare it!

Despite the restaurant being highly recommended by friends, I was appalled at the shoddy service and the lack of ambience. The food left no impression at all. Our waitron was surly, unfriendly and mostly absent. Not worth a visit

We had The Girls on our short list of restaurants to try in Wilderness, as we saw good to great reviews. It did not disappoint. The setting is funky, with a loft area above which contains art for sale. Our waiter was charming and helpful. When I asked what the line fish of the day was, he not only explained... More

This was our first night in Wilderness, we just randomly pick this place. We were surprised at how good the food was as the description left us some what wondering. Thanks for a great night and the girls will definitely see us in the future.

Our second visit to Wilderness and we headed straight to The Girls. There are lots of very good restaurants in Wilderness and yet we visited twice during our 4 night stay - we enjoy it so much. The food and wine choices are extensive and excellent and staff could not have been more helpful and attentive. The restaurant was full... More

WildMagic, Owner at The Girls Restaurant, responded to this review

Dear WillemanEsme Thanx for taking the time to review us and please allow me to respond. At this time of the year, when the season madness has all but died, it really is a difficult one to maintain the usual buzz and atmosphere of a bustling restaurant. The restaurant as you say is only open at nights. During the day,... More
