Hubby and I just love the food at Waterside Grill. They also have a lovely wine list and the service is attentive but not intrusive.

Had a decent steak and my wife had some decent sushi, but felt like we were eating in a floodlit arena with everyone watching us - place needs to turn the big lights of and introduce some candles!

We were treated to a romantic dinner at the Waterside Grill & Bar. The menu offers a good variety of dishes. The staff were very pleasant and we had a wonderful atmosphere. Definitely, a dinner worth remembering.

wonderful meat selection cooked in front of you, great service and wonderful wine selection. There is fish on the menu as well but suited more to the meat eater. Portions are quite large so go with an appetite.

Just steps outside of my hotel room, lay an enjoyable fine dining experience. The atmosphere was relaxed, the wine menu was good (including a good selection of Ernie Els given his association with the estate) and the food was cooked to perfection

Went here for 2 dinners. 1st Night was terrible due to very poor service, but 2nd night they made up! Atmosphere a bit boring and the food of average quality. Something menu items and sushi a bit expensive. Maybe try out Clubhouse as well !

Poor service. Food average, not up to standard and what we are use to. We have been going to Waterside for a couple of years and the service is getting worse by the day as well as the quality of food. Disappointing.
