“Game with fresh vegetables”
Reviewed August 13, 2014

Definitely the best choice to eat in Addo. Superb game cuisine with delicious fresh home-grown vegetables in a homely setting with Free Wi-Fi. Game was cooked to perfection - don't expect it to be overdone. The tastiest tomato soup ever. Minimal (one) choice of deserts. A magic evening with friendly hosts. Closed on Mondays. Make a reservation to avoid disappointment.

“Good food and service but they force u to tip!”
Reviewed August 5, 2014 via mobile

We had a great dinner, and our waiter named Mozes was really kind and helpfull, and even the lady who owns the place was really nice and i like that she works in the kitchen herself.

The thing we didn't like is that they force u to tip 10%, without telling u on forhand. So that came as a surprise. And usually we do tip 10% if we liked it, so we would've tipped anyway, but it's rude to just force people to do that.

Hazel and I are certainly pleased that you enjoyed your meal and the service provided by the staff at Hazels. We would however like to address your comments about being " forced to tip " without prior knowledge of the practice.
I would like to point out that the total cost prior to reflecting the gratuity is prominently printed on each bill. Secondly we have indicated on our menu in boldface type that the 10 % gratuity will be applied when the bill is printed. It is our practice that whenever a customer elects to pay the total without gratuity, Hazel and I pay the service to our staff on our own account.
We would be more than pleased to refund the gratuity on receiving your details by email.

“What a surprise”
Reviewed July 28, 2014

Seemingly in the middle of nowhere is this amazing restaurant serving the best food you will eat in South Africa. If you are in the area it is a must stop! Hazel and Randy are terrifically friendly and doing great things with Perma-Culture.

“Delectable organic cuisine in the middle of nowhere!”
Reviewed July 13, 2014

We had a hard time finding Hazel's at night during our stay in Addo, but we persisted in driving around until we found it and we were rewarded with some of the best food we've ever had. It was so wonderful we ended up eating there two nights in a row. My husband and I are both vegetarian and ordered the vegetable plate both nights, and Hazel prepared for us plates loaded with seven or eight different vegetable dishes (most of which differed from the first night to the second, impressively). Truly, truly delicious. The sweet potato bread and hummus appetizer was mouth-watering, as was the trifle we had for dessert the first night was divine. The second night we opted for their homemade herbal tea instead, which was also a wonderful finish to the meal. Hazel herself came out to talk with us both nights to ensure we were enjoying our meal. Hazel's is a true gem, and a pleasant surprise to find in a rural area.
