Despite a seriously wet evening we decided to drive 25km to Wilderness from George. The Girls did not disappoint in any way. It is hard to remember an evening when we could find zero faults. Donald gave us a warm welcome , showing us to the Chefs table where we could view the kitchen through a one way mirror window... More

We visited The Girls, whilst on holiday in the Garden Route. Not having been here for a number of years, I then relied upon Tripadvisor for recommendations. We were pleasantly surprised with the service and quality of the food. Highly recommended and sure to visit again in the future...

We were refered to the restaurant by Hildasheim guest lodge, and they even made a reservation for us. When we walked in we were greeted warmly and offered a drink. The waitress explained the meals they had on offer and actually recommended a few dishes from her first hand personal experiences. She was also well versed with the types of... More

Although the name would normally put me off, having read a few reviews and seen their overall ratings I was really keen to try The Girls. We were there on a Sunday night and were left wondering was it perhaps the chef's night off. The calamari was rubbery and boring, even though it was covered in spice. The dorado linefish... More

Had my doubts when I saw the location, but don't let that fool you. We had a wonderful meal, with excellent service in very convivial surroundings, The steak I chose was superb, with an extremely tasty sauce. The menu is varied and the prices reasonable. All in all a fun night out, well done guys.

We got tipped to visit this restaurant, it doesn't look very amazing on the outside but it is a hidden gem. We had great service from (surprise) the girls :) and a perfect dinner here. We had such a good time, I think we were the last ones to leave that night and if we are ever in SA again,... More

Discarding the pomp and ceremony, great food in a great environment! This guy is an inspired chef, young enough to take chances with a great mind for flavor pairings - it was a really wonderful meal. Leading the trend in our own backyard to create stunning meals in a convivial atmosphere... Truly memorable, I'd love to come back again for... More

We spent a lovely evening here (in March 2013). In between the delicious meals (I had the prawns and my partner tried the trio of steaks with different sauces) we browsed amongst the gifts upstairs and ended up buying a lot of birthday presents for friends back home. The staff were welcoming and friendly.

What a unique restaurant experience on so many levels. Part bistro, part curio shop this absolute gem is a must-visit. The fish was extremely fresh and cooked perfectly with 3 different linefish to choose from as well as their speciality prawn dishes. There was also a number of meat and Thai curry options. Along with the food what really stood... More

Wow, the Girls have been going for some years & in all that time neither Judy & I nor any of our guests have had anything but rave reviews about their restaurant. The service is friendly, efficient & knowledgeable, and the food is simply spectacular. Not a huge menu, but enough to satisfy all needs, & the food is all... More
