Too busy!!!

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... read more

This is one of the best restaurants I have ever been. The service is good and they have a great variety of food to offer. This restaurant is highly recommended for travelers or family get together's.

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 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

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!
