OK high turnover food, not worth the fine dining prices! A little too noisy for my liking, think I'll stick to the fine dining.

Visited Hippo Creek for the first time on Sunday and on ordering a drink was offered a free hamburger. The promotion is between 3.30 and 5.00 every Sunday. Expecting a small slider we were surprised when it arrived on a full size bun and it was really tasty. The menu looked good and we will return one day to sample some of the other meals offered.

Even on a Tuesday night the restaurant was busy -a good sign.
The decore was nice but a little plain considering. The metal chairs were uncomfortable and our table was very close to our neighbour (I was conscious not to bump them). We had the mushrooms for starters. They were extremely tasty, but came out so hot that they burnt my mouth (warning: hot filling inside).
The main course was Botswana beef. The beef itself was magnificent. Cooked to perfection and flavoursome. The mashed potato it came with was only ok (not creamy).
Desert was a small pudding and ice cream. The pudding itself was a little bland for my liking but there was some berry sauces which gave flavour to the icecream.
Staff were friendly and attentive. Service was very quick.
Unfortunately it was the atmosphere that let the venue down. It was too noisy to talk to my partner much. At the risk of sounding like a snob, the table next to us had two lads who arived in board shorts, thongs and caps - not really what we expected for a restaurant evening meal. Not saying that this is formal dining, but wear some shoes and take off the hats at least lads!
Prices were expensive considering.

It's best to make your reservation, we walked in without any and we have to come back an hour latter as the place if full, even the bar areas.

When we returned, our table is ready. Five of us, we ordered Wahyu Tomahawk Ribeye (1,8kg) and half rack of port ribs.

Yes, the food resent action is as plain as can be! The meat, a cup of sauce and a side (mash potato). The ribs sit on top of fries. That's it.

We dig in and the meats are fantastic! We cleanup all the meats and sides in 30 minutes! Even what's normally stick to the bones are gone too!

We ordered desert and the desert are great too!

Yes, it's a bit pricey but what you get are great food.

However take note that the Hillary and Waterford menu differs from the on at subiaco.

The food was SPECTACULAR!!! The presentation was great. This is a top notch African grill. Great place to try if you want to experience something different but don't want to go to wild.
