Thankfully this restaurant isn’t in the Cradle of humanity as I fear we wouldn’t have made it. The buffet, never a great idea, was probably the worst I have ever had the misfortune to experience. The Italian section had slices of frozen pizza on it. the fish counter resembled a shark attack, all that was left was bones and heads.... More

I recently celebrated my birthday at Stone Cradle, together with 10 of my friends. We had a lovely evening with delicious food in huge varieties, excellent background live music, and an entertaining mini-show by some of the staff who sang Happy Birthday and a range of other songs at each table . Great value for money and one of the... More

I have attended various functions and seminars at Stone Cradle and the setting is beautiful and the dream for it must have been excellent but reality caught up with it and it urgently needs upgrading. Although the food was excellent as was the variety, the ambiance and warmth got lost between all those stone walls. Although there were enough staff... More

We recently enjoyed a wine tasting with a gourmet dinner, unlike their normal buffet dinner. The food was excellent, well prepared and served with panache. We have had the buffet dinner before - though I am not a buffet fan whatsoever, this one really has everything on offer - from sushi to steak and everything in-between.

The restaurant's view is great & there is great potential to be an excellent restaurant, but the buffet was terrible and the service wasn't much better!

We went to celebrate with another couple and were told this was an exceptional place. As they were busy we had only managed to secure a table in one of the side rooms which was a little bit sparse- two couples sitting at a table for 6-8 was not ideal. The service was a bit rough around the edges- drinks... More

The perfect venue to entertain a client, very expansive buffet and very attentive but not intrusive service. I certainly will go back.

A lovely restaurant with great views. The buffet lunch has a lot to offer with a large variety of cuisines from all over the world. The steaks top class and the price to fit every-ones pocket. A wide range of wines to choose from and even a kiddies playground to keep them busy. After lunch drive through the popular Rietvlei... More

Plenty secure parking bays. Golf cart to drive you right to the restaurant door. Beautiful stone building with thatched roof. Big wide open spaces inside as well as private corners. Choose between the a la carte restaurant or the buffet dinner. Very well priced. Very good wine selection. More than enough to choose from. Well prepared, delicious and beautifully served.... More
