We visited on a Saturday evening - the restaurant was fully booked. Service was polite and efficient - the menu and options were explained in detail & the drinks list was good. Most of us ate the steak in its various forms. The meat was beautifully cooked and the accompanying vegetables were also very good. The serving size was generous.... More

Great feed at this place. Far better then outback jacks or other such chains, and the meat is top shelf, and limited only by your wallet. The more you pay the better it is. Put the meat in your face and enjoy it. Good choice of lubricants as well, with the James squires a fan winning performance

The staff were excellent at finding us a table outside on the terrace. It was so busy inside but the service wasn't slow at all and we all enjoyed our meals. Ribs were great, my steak was delicious and the chicken skewers were really good. Not fussy food but very well flavoured.

We visited on a busy Saturday night. This meant the service was a bit slow but cosidering the number of diners it wasnt to much of a problem - besides there is plenty to look at - if upstairs. The food is fairly basic 'steak and chips' but the steak was outsanding. I ordered the smallest size, 350g, and struggled... More

We rang ahead to find out how busy they usually are on a Friday at lunch time. The haughty person at Hippo Creek gave a brusque reply "that it varied". We then wondered if we should go if this was the reception we could expect. However, the four of us went. True to form when asked about a certain bottle... More

Restaurant was unique and beautifully presented. Food was delicious and perfect for meat-lovers. Completely different to anywhere I've been before and a real experience.

Really lovely restaurant...food is delicious, views are amazing! On the pricey side but you get what you pay for and it's worth the money! Try the game platter for starters, tasty!

Not only are all 3 restaurants beautifully located, they offer decent steak cooked to perfection. You want medium rare? It actually comes out MEDIUM RARE! Good golly! Don't be fooled by what sounds like an ordinary chicken or steak skewer... a whole rooster and cow come out on this ornate hanging monstrosity, dripping with butter which is soaked up by... More
