We booked for their buffet supper which offered the widest variety I have ever seen. I was pleased to see there were some proudly South African traditional dishes on offer as well as some game.

My wife and I visited the Ivory Arch Buffet Restaurant for a Sunday lunch and were very pleasantly surprised by the abundance of dishes on offer. There is simply too much to choose from, for any one sitting! I didn't even bother to try a starter, because of my limited appetite, and selected two main dishes on one plate -... More

Never again will this restaurant see me, my friends or anyone I can tell about it again. Let's just say, I know where to go when I am next constipated, as you leave stone cradle with rampant diorrhea.

My friend got married and they had a small thing there. We had sushi for a starter which was nice. But, the rest of the food was vile and tasteless. Even the pudding was awful

Below average food. Waiters don't know their own menu. Went for drinks only, they insisted on charging us for the buffet as well. Crappy place, dodgy road to get there as well Definitely not recommended.

The Stone Cradle Restaurant is a rare gem, from its setting on a hill overlooking the suburbs surrounding Pretoria, right through to the variety of cuisine on offer. It is definitely worth a visit, and there is something for every taste. The buffet has a wide variety from traditional african food to sushi and also Mediterranean traditional foods. Deserts are...

We have been to this restaurant a couple of times for Sunday lunch. There is a large variety of tasty food available on the buffet from sushi to stir-fry, traditional African food and curries etc. There is also an a-la-carte menu available. The buffet is EXTREMELY busy to the point of unpleasant. If a buffet is your thing, then this... More

We visited it several times and attended a large birthday party at the Stone Cradle. It is a good location with a view over Pretoria. There is a vast diversity of food at the buffet meals. Some of it is very good but our experience is that the buffet food quality is what is more or less in line with... More
