Lovely dinner and great hospitality

We were recommended to Pioneers during our stay in Hazyview and I'm delighted that we went to spend an evening with them! I am not a meat eater and still found plenty of choice on the menu and my husband says it was one of the best rib eye steaks he ever had! The service we received in the... read more

If you like to eat medium, better order well done, as the meat is undercooked by a lot. Even after sending it back to the kitchen, it wasn't quite medium yet, but rather bloody and dripping red from bottom to top, every single piece of the steak. Compared to the other half dozen places we have been at in South... More

4 of us arrived as booked and were shown to a booth straight away as restaurant almost empty. There was a 10 minute wait for our order to be taken, and quite a bit longer for the food to arrive. Having said that, the food (steaks / prawns) was good, and the quantities huge - too much in fact. There... More

Hi there Chris Thank you for taking the time to review Pioneer's. Glad you enjoyed your meal. In South Africa we tend to serve big portions as we are big eaters. Unfortunately on a quiet night most places lack atmosphere but I have shown your review to my waiters so they can pull up their socks and be more friendly... More

We were 2 couples dining at this restaurant. We realised soon enough that interacting with the staff was pointless. Any request regarding seating was met with a 'no, that's not possible'. So, call the manager and suddenly everything is possible. The manager informed us that they were busy, which we accepted. Little did we know that this meant having to... More

We dined there for my husbands birthday while staying in Hazyview. The food is wonderful and the steaks are out of this world. The service is good and we had a good evening. We have since stopped in a couple of times while on holiday in Kruger Park to buy uncooked steaks, which they vacuum pack for you. They have,... More

Sadly, we've not had the pleasure of dining at the restaurant as we live in London and are always in a rush to get to Kruger once we are in SA. For the past 2 years (soon to be 3rd in March) we've ordered our steaks online and are able to specify the cut and the size we require. We... More

Ate here two nights on the trot as the reviews suggested that our first visit had been a one off disappointment. Sadly the second night was just as disappointing, so maybe we are just fussy. But compared to other restaurants we ate at during our visit to SA, this did not come up to scratch. The flavour of the food... More

We loved, loved, loved this restaurant. Excellent food, large portions, great wine list and wonderful, caring professional service. The owner stopped by our table numerous times to make sure we were enjoying our evening. We even arrived prior to the dinner hour (not yet opened). It did not matter. We were seated immediately and our wine was brought to us... More

At the recommendation of Rob Topham, Ashbourne Country Escape, my wife and I had dinner at the Pioneer on a quiet Monday evening. Food was very good, and my 300g Filet was to die for...for American tourists...$9 for a 10 Oz filet with potato and veggies...magic.
