“Opportunity missed?”
Reviewed July 11, 2013

After the recent revamp of the Sun Karros Daan Viljoen game park and resort, one would have expected the restaurant to follow suit. The conference facilities and surrounding is great, but the restaurant lacks ambience, good service and the food lacks finesse, taste and quality. The buffet lunch option when we visited was mediocre, and having 2 different groups of customers and 2 different menus did not help at all. It was a typical mass production of meat and vegetable dishes, no flavor. It is quite sad and disappointing, after such a major investment to reinvent the brand, venue and marketing efforts. The restaurant lacks a view (it is there - but the architects (if used?) slipped up!), and the menu will need a facelift to get me back.
