Very good bufet

Very good food, with a various of dishes. The restaurant was a big cantine, and it could deffenatly been decorated or been done more intime. All in all! Good value for the money (150 rand pp).

I was invited to a 21st dinner at Stone Cradle! What an awful experience. The service was appalling and it is buffet so all the waiter needed to do was take drinks orders. Bad bad bad ... I won't be back ! And the staff has the cheek to ask for tips !

"On both occasions I visited this establishment the food was cold. Service was okay . There was a really big variety of food and compared to other buffet places the food was good quality. There was a bottomless soda fountain and wine fountain and craft beers. The tables and table cloths was really dirty .

Relaxing atmosphere and lovely food. Tend to get overbooked at times however it is a big venue and lend itself to big bookings. Children running around could be disturbing at times during lunch on Sundays! In general a good outing!

This restaurant is in my opinion not one that offers good value for money. If you want a different experience with all kinds of food on offer you may visit them.

Stone Cradle is set in a beautiful setting and has a wonderful athmosphere. People who like to eat a lot of average food, would enjoy this restaurant. It would however not appeal to foodies. Even though there is a huge variety of food to choose from, nothing is really tasteful. There is also no proper facilities for children, only two... More

They also offer a bottomless fountain including house, wine, craft beer and soda drinks. On a previous occation we were impressed with the quality of food but on this occation... More

You would have to dine here a few times just to be able to taste all dishes on offer at least once, the atmosphere and views are amazing and the staff really friendly and helpful and on top of it all we found it to be very reasonably priced

Overlooking a lovely private game reserve and the city skyline of South Africa's capital from a distance, the smell of the African bush, thatched roof, and focus point stone walls - Cradle Stone Restaurant welcomes guests from near and far. It is easily accessible from the R 21, opposite the Irene Village Mall, off the Nelmapius off ramp, on the... More

This was suppose to be the one evening that I could sit back and relax. I made my booking personally (I actually went to the restaurant and together with their bookings lady chose a more private venue on the verandah). I even paid my deposit as it is required for groups bigger than 10. So what can go wrong? Well... More
