From arriving to paying the bill, everything is perfect. The food, wine, hosts, venue, price, I challenge anybody to find a better all round experience. We will definitely be going back

Did not have very high expectations and was very pleasantly surprised by amazing food, great wine, excellent service and very cosy ambiance. One of the best restaurants we visited in the Garden Route. Not to be missed!

Everything was delicious. The springbok was very tender. The wine selection is good. The portions are of good size. The chocolate desert was fabulous. Only critic is that it was very cold inside, next time I will dress with more clothes! We will definitely go back.

We visited 3 times over the past couple of years and were blown away each time! This is a true Fine Dining Experience with exceptional service. It is very expensive for locals, but worth every cent for that extra-special occasion. And to foreigners I would say, "Don't even consider missing this treat!"

I wanted the best out of wilderness to spoil ourselves as our trip was going to an end in garden route. So I choose the number ones on trip advisor. On The Beach was our hotel and I choose serendipity for our dinner. I can tell my choices were great. The food and quality of service is impeccable. By far... More

Top quality service, incredible menus that change with the seasons & excellent wines to pair with the food. Rudolph & Lizelle are the perfect hosts & explain everything on the menu before you make your decision. This is the place you have to come to to experience beautiful food that's made with absolute love & respect.

I was not expecting a restaurant of this standard in the otherwise very touristy and ordinary Wilderness. It was quiet being winter but that didn't affect the very high standard of food or the amazing hospitality. Great food, great wine and very friendly hosts. A bit pricey but well worth it.

After reading the great reviews of this restaurant on Tripadvisor, we took the drive from Plett to Wilderness. We can honestly say expectations were met. We started off with drinks while the set menu was explained to us. As a couple we ensured ordering different options from the set menu and then tasting each others dishes. We were also offered...
