Breakfast

Food tasty and view nice. Some staff members need training in serving. Coffee could be better. The highlight was the skilpadjies though.

We went to Stone Cradle on 16 May 2015 to have dinner with family. Our family had been there before and had nothing but good things to say. Unfortunately our dining experience does not support these sentiments. - prawns burnt to a crisp; - a long wait for drinks to be served; - cutlery not readily available on the table;... More

This restaurant serves an average buffet. The view is nice but the food is terrible. Don't even try the prawns. The fish was tasteless. The buffalo wings were sweet and terrible. The drinks are expensive. This is how the place makes the money.

Complements to the establishment for the atmosphere, but I will not return for the food or the service. The buffet food ran out and was not well prepared.

You really don't want to visit this excuse of a restaurant. The service (for want of a better word). They ran out of meat, the queues were interminable, and the food is the upper end of public school boarding house. The establishment will shamelessly part you with your money - and give you zero value. Stay away is all I... More

While my wife and I did not try the luncheon buffet, we opted for an a la carte lunch at the Bistro. An absolutely unremarkable meal. Will we go back?....No.

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 .

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).
