Set menu. Expensive, but quality food. Don't go just for a snack-go intending to celebrate the meal!

What a FANTASTIC restaurant!? This is fine dining at its best and I can highly recommend this restaurant to anyone. The food was scrumptious and very filling. The beautiful fynbos flowers in the restaurant was just breathtaking. The attention to detail overall was excellent. Very good service. Will definitely return to Rudolf & Lizelle Stolze's restaurant. They are now considered... More

We had a 3 and 1/2 hour extravaganza of the most divine food and wines. The hosts Rudolf and Lizelle treated as like family and discussed their menu and the the fine accompanying wines with such zest that just isn't seen much nowadays! What a wonderful experience!

You are taken to a living room were you order a gourmet aperitif and the menu is explained to you. We had wonderful bisque, kudu, and fish that was done just beautifully. There is an extensive wine list and... More

just want to thank you for the effort made with our Kuwaiti guests that stayed at Wilderness Dunes recently. They could not stop raving about Serendipity and had a wonderful time. Perfect ending to their week in the Garden Route! It’s not often that establishments make the kind of effort that you do. The chef was sick and they were... More

Dear Ckubika, Thank you for taking the time to write a review. It is such a great pity that you did not enjoy your experience with us at Serendipity. There is no excuse for slow service. However, we have a system at Serendipity that allows 10 minutes after everyone at the table has finished eating before the next course is... More

Lizelle & Rudolf… O MY WORD! is all we can say(there is actually a lot more that we can say but we don’t want to censor) when we think about your food. Lizelle your food really made us believe in Christmas Father, the Tooth fairy and all the other fairy tales that we thought no longer existed! Rudolf thanks to... More

My son and daughter (both London foodies and over here on holiday) booked a table for the 4 of us, on the strength of Trip Advisor reviews, for dinner on my 73rd birthday. We knew that Serendipity had a very good reputation and was priced accordingly and we were all looking forward to a leisurely evening of food delicacies and... More
