Great food

This restaurant has a lovely setting outside. We had Wendy as our waitron and she was friendly and efficient. The food was excellent, with a broad range of snacks and main meals, including sushi. The gourmet milkshakes are a real treat!

Jabu the waiter at magnolia's served me an amazing breakfast, was very fast and polite. Jabu was always making sure I was satisfied with my meal or if I needed anything. The breakfast was a very nice presentation and tasted just as good! I will definitely be eating breakfast there every morning!:)

As guests at Casterbridge Hollow breakfast is automatically served at Magnolia. The staff were very friendly and smiled a lot but service was very slow. If you're in a hurry you've lost out. We asked for rye toast - we were fortunate enough to get it once - I imagine they ran out over the weekend or didn't know what... More

This restaurant was recommended to us by the B&B where we stayed, they also made the reservation for us. We were pleased with this choice because it is a nicely decorated dining room and good food with rather large portions from starter to dessert. The wine list offers enough choice at reasonable prices. Friendly and helpfull service.

Modern setting, excellent wines and great food. If you want to try some games, such as ostrich, kudu, springbok, go for it.

We recently enjoyed dinner at Magnolia - we were helped to drinks but had to wait quite a while for menus as it would seem that they did not have enough of them around. The menu was quite extensive with various items that looked interesting. The food was of a high quality but the service although friendly was very slow.

Great breakfast on our departure from White River. Lovely platter with croissants, cheeses and cold meats followed by a delicious cooked breakfast. I can recommend Magnolia!
