Lizelle does a tremendous job at providing such excellent cuisine and it is easy to see why she has won so many awards. Not cheap at 380 Rand for a 5-course meal but the experience is worth that.

A lovely restaurant, presentation and menu. Great service and the surprises just kept coming through each course and to the night cap. A great wine menu which is well priced too. Take their steer, enjoy and then walk home fat and full enjoying the moonlight.

Absolutely wonderful! Serendipity knows how to treat you right. Compliments to the chef for taste and presentation. Local specialties and international cuisine paired with delicious South African wines. The lemon zest aperitif started the dinner off on the perfect note.

The best fine dining experience you will ever have. The food is fantastic and love the idea of wine pairing with the food, it adds to the great experience.

Beautiful and unusual location for a restaurant. Food was excellent, with explanations about the menu provided over pre-meal drinks overlooking the lagoon. Five course meal with limited but interesting menu choice. Don't eat lunch if you want to make the most of your evening meal!

This is, without doupt, the best restaurant on the Garden Route and a top ten in South Africa. From the first second when you step in to the garden and in thru the doors, and on to the stoep, you will know you have come somewhere very special. It is in the air! The service, the meny, the wine list,... More
