Another wonderful taste bud tantalising night out

This was the second time we have been, and again a wonderful experience. The food was amazing, the staff are friendly helpful and are always happy to assist with strange requests regarding food allergies. A awesome fine dining experience. Will definitely be going back.

One of those restaurants where we have to keep going back even if it is a little out of our way. Liselle & Rudolph run a first class establishment where you are treated to such wonderful tasting experiences. It is very hard to do this place justice with the written word, just go and experience for yourselves but make sure... More

Words cannot explain how good the food was and the service the best. They had a card on our table to wish us happy anniversary. The atmosphere was warm with a touch of class.

I took my parents to Serendipity to celebrate their 50th wedding anniversary and the experience was faultless from start to finish. On arrival, we were taken to the patio for sundowners overlooking the lake (we all went for the "Prickly Royale", which was delicious!) where the owner talked us through the creative 4 course menu (which comes with additional amuse...

We had something to celebrate, so we checked out what was rated as one of the best restaurants in the area. It is a geat setting, what looks like (and was) a private house on the banks of the river Touw. The 4 of us had cocktails on the veranda with water views. We were quickly served with drinks while...

With all the great reviews I was expecting a bit of an anti-climax, but Serendipity did not disappoint.

I went for... More

Great 5 course menu with excellent wine list to chose from. The Chef personally guides you through the menu and their composition and this is definitely one of the Garden Route's finest place to dine.
