“Highly recommended Italian Restaurant”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 24, 2014

We recently spent a weekend away in Pringle Bay and after searching for a restaurant for dinner, stumbled upon HRK. It was my wife's birthday and I had fine dining in mind but she felt so chilled at this venue (and I felt the same) we stayed for dinner. The owners, Gary and Karen are the most perfect hosts and I honestly felt we had known them for years after only a couple of hours. That is the extent of the welcome one experiences. We both settled for pizza and a salad. So much for fine dining I thought but we were definitely not disappointed. Absolutely the best gourmet pizza we had ever eaten and that beats pizza in Italy! The decor is brilliant. Candlelit tables and french background music (yes French) created the perfect ambience. Everything was top notch, in fact so good we believed that any other eatery in the region would disappoint so back we went on the Saturday evening. Thanks Karen for your great chats between serving other tables and Gary for your cheerful demeanour and contributing to a great birthday enjoyed by us both. I even managed to stuff the chocolate Brownie with homemade chocolate sauce down my throat before leaving but what can you do? Irresistable. The only problem with writing reviews like this is the next time we go there will be a 6 weeks in advance waiting list. On second thoughts, avoid this restaurant everyone. Its ours! Looking forward to the next visit. Just need to burn off these calories. Andrew & Suelene.

“Great food, great ambience, great hosts”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 26, 2014

A warm and inviting bistro run by the owners who aim to please. We had fresh fish expertly prepared, and a steak that was equally well prepared and presented. Open on a Sunday and Monday night when most others are closed. Booking recommended.

“Great evening”

This restaurant has a charming atmosphere and does really good pizzas. It was one of the most memorable meals of our two week holiday. It was also very good value.

“Excellent Experience!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 1, 2014

What an amazing, delightful place for some of the best pizza we've ever tasted! The ambiance is truly romantic and the rooms very tastefully decorated. All a very light feeling with creative touches that create an intimate environment.

Although we only had pizza both times we ate there (we couldn't resist). . . we are absolutely certain that anything they served would be extraordinary. . . or they would simply not serve it.

The wonderful owners are present every night and they take great pride in their restaurant and the food and service that leaves their customers coming back again and again.

Very highly recommended!

“EXCELLENT VALUE FOR MONEY”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 29, 2014

During our stay in Hangklip, we discovered this little gem of a restaurant and visited them every evening. The food was so fresh and tasty, absolutely divine. The owners was so attentive and friendly and the chef personally came around to ask how our meal was. I would definitely recommend this restaurant.
