Really good food

The Cotton Club has a varied menu and there is something to suit all tastes. The salads are especially good and big enough to share. There are a few other great shops in that area so the Cotton Club Café becomes a welcome refreshment stop. They are licensed. Worth the visit.

Lovely setting with spectacular view of the mountains. There is potential to improve the gardens which would enhance the outdoor experience. On an overcast day, the veranda was very dark. Mains took some time but were tasty, nicely presented and the portions generous. Overall, hearty, robust country cooking! Desserts disappointing.

Out in what feels like the middle of nowhere, Anne's Cotton Club Cafe hides at the end of a small road off the main road. And what a wonderful place this is! You can chose to sit in the lush garden or inside the cosy restaurant. The food is very high quality, and as always in SA, at very good... More

I had the most amazing version of chicken pot pie ever! Full of flavor, tender chicken and a light, flakey crust. Soo good! Great wine selection and we set at an outdoor table that had amazing view of the mountains. We should have gone back again!

This is where the locals go for Anne's delicious Sunday lunches, which often extend into lovely, leisurely afternoons. The menu is simple, yet the food is exquisite and beautifully presented. Anne is a wonderful hostess, who is very ably assisted by the sweet and friendly Rosie and Angel.

I recently had the pleasure of once again enjoying lunch at Cotton Club Cafe between Hoedspruit and the Blyde River Canyon. I was with some international visitors who had just enjoyed the cruise on the Swadini Dam in the canyon, so Cotton Club was convenient and allowed us to continue enjoying the stunning views of the escarpment, from the lovely...

Stunning food from a small but well put together menu.From fun tasty vetkoek burgers and milkshakes to more sophisticated salads and tarts everything was beautifully presented and very reasonably priced. The setting is really stunning and allows you the opportunity to eat outside under the trees. We will definitely make this a regular stop on our visits to the Kruger.

The eating is outdoors if you want, in an absolutely beautiful garden. Felt a bit like France, in some ways. The food was very good and creative. Lovely place. The only imperfection is that some of the staff did not seem so happy. Altogether, a great place.

We stopped for lunch after a recommendation from the owner of the Blyde River Canyon Lodge and really like the Cafe. Limited menu but excellent value.

The title says it all. We were so surprised to find a calm little place in the middle of nowhere that was staffed and frequented by, presumably, the ladies-who-lunch of the veldt. We had delicious chilled drinks at a little table in the garden with beautiful wild birds visiting for crumbs while the ladies nattered in the more sensible shade... More
