Good food, good vibe

Enjoyed meal and clearly the owner is paying attention to the deal. Kids menu could be extended be extended as order bangers and mash and got a banger and mash, had to ask for another. Still a good evening and atmosphere is relaxed and friendly.

Good food generally. Service very much on the slow side. Good portions and good quality overall. Order mixed up slightly on both main and desert.

Very enjoyable restaurant with a nice and cosy atmosphere. Good selection of wines and well thought out menu. Well supported (filled up towards 8PM). Catered well for the kids as well (colouring in books, etc.). Be sure to book upfront during popular times or you might not find a table

The Mayfly had good quality light meals. It's in the town centre and one can explore the small shops that are within walking distance after lunch.

We popped into Mayfly for an afternoon drink while walking through Dullstroom. First off the service was great, staff knew the menu and even knew the cocktail menu and could recommend certain drinks (which is always appreciated when wanting to try something new).

There service was outstanding, as you don't only have the one waiter helping, the food was awesome, you get what you order, their meat is soft and very tender, as everyone ordered differently, we will definitely be going back.
