Great Variety!

A big buffet restaurant with many tables. Because of that it can get a bit loud, but still ok. On days with good weather it is also possible to sit outside. Many african but also international kinds of food. Staff is very friendly. A reservation prior to the visit is highly recomended.

I have been to this restaurant three times and every time it was a very disappointing experience .The setting is lovely . Overlooking a part of Pretoria . Although the setting is lovely and the building impressive, we have not been impressed with overhaul service or food . Once inside, a waiter is prompt to assist and show you to... More

Went as a group of 10 for supper on a Saturday night. There was live music in the restaurant which was great. As far as the food goes I have never seen such a spread in my life. Sushi, seafood including prawns, calamari, fish, make your own stir-fry, pizza, salads, soups & breads, curry, venison stew, carvery, variety of hot... More

There's always something different at the buffet, and the food has never disappointed. My favourite is the selection of Venison dishes, and the desserts!

We arrived round about 15:00 on Sunday afternoon. Obviously it as buzzing as there were live entertainment earlier the day. The restaurant was dirty, serviettes and food laying around. The welcoming at the door was very unpleasant and felt like we were in the way. The staff seemed overworked, untrained and not very presentable. We had to ask to be... More

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.
