The steak we had was aged 99 days and was as good as I have ever had. The setting in the jungle but next to the ocean was beautiful

Best ever experienced food out in an Ocean. I feel like in Paris, London or New York. Perfect cooked steak, amazing starters and desserts.

Not to be missed if you are on Niyama. Expect the unexpected with this short trip to the savannas of Africa. Attention is paid to the smallest detail, the deco, service and food/drinks are in absolute harmony. Really enjoyed it!

The 41 days dry aged t-bone beef was really good. We enjoyed coming here. And the staff and service was top notch. Well done!

While here for work, this was one of two places I had dinner. Really good food, very fresh and the waiting staff was very friendly. Great place for a meal, no pressure no stress.

The service from staff was great. Beautiful South African wines on the menu, music by Bra Hugh Masikela and Oliver Mtukudzi amd a chat with Simba made it a most special experience. The meat was cooked to perfection and the desert was delicious.

Yama looked after us and was fantastic! We felt like kings! The food delicious - the aged steak was the best I have tasted, and the setting delightful. Thank you Niyama Island for this great experience.
