Coming back to Wilderness this year again we knew that Serendipity is a MUST for dinner. As we liked it so much we had dinner 3 times during our stay. Everytime it was excellent. You can expect a small menue with creative ideas in preparing food a little different, trying to bring out new notes of flavours. However nothing is... More

This is an upscale restaurant. They do an excellent job with African cuisine. It is a five course dinner and each course is paired with wine. The flavors and presentation are exquisite. It is pricey compared to other local food venues, but the cost is definitely worth it. The food and presentation and service were fantastic.

Had a rather enjoyable meal at Serendipity. Definitely upmarket kind of faire with a lot of love put into the great looking dishes. Some really interesting combo's. Also, a thorough explanation of the menu before dinner - although we couldn't follow what was being discussed as there were no menu's for us - they eventually did arrive, but too late.... More

Thank you to Lisette and Rudolph once again for a memorable, gorgeous meal and experience. It was a highlight of our holiday. Food wonderful and such care taken with my pepper-fussiness! Pairing wines perfect and friendly warm atmosphere xxx

The hosts whose names escape clearly put a lot of effort into their restaurant with a lot of thought put into the dishes. Each course on the set menu is explained in detail and the wines to go with it are sublime. The view from the patio area for a pre dinner drink are pretty good too. all in all... More

What an elegant establishment. The 5 course meal well thought out and creative. There was a great selection of unique wines and lovely gin made in Stilbaai, that my husband can not stop talking about. We really had an enjoyable evening, one we won't forget very easily. We are definitely planning on a return visit.

We had the pleasure that was way beyond our expectation having dinner at Serendipity at the Wilderness along the Garden Route. Everything was fantastic, ambience, food, wine and service too. Our only regret (which we will rectify the next time round) was not overnighting there. But we will look forward to enjoying that soon!
