“Wonderful”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 8, 2014

We had dinner on two consecutive evenings, when staying at the Villa Ticino next door.
All the specials (written on a portable chalkboard) are delicious and well prepared. Limited but good selection of wines. The service from Catherine was outstanding.

“Fantastic!! worth the 12,000 mile round trip from the UK!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 4, 2014

Over the last eight years we have visited the Wild Fig for lunches on each of our four visits to the Hazyview area. The location of this lovely old style building on the crest of the long hill up the road into Sabie from Hazyview makes for a welcome site and when added to the food and excellent staff there is no wonder we come back! The choices on offer ensures you have an interesting conversation with the very friendly and knowledgeable waitresses. Anyone wanting to try something different from the region or more well-known dishes will not be disappointed. PS the salads are fantastic!

“Wining and dining at reasonable price.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 24, 2014

Restaurant was within walking distance of our accomodation and offers a selection of typical SA-dishes and a good winelist, all at reasonable prices. Serving staff was extremely friendly and helpfull. A very nice dinner experience.
For those travelling on a strict budget : the Woodmans pub across the street serves pubfood.
