“Horrifying food experience”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 25, 2014 via mobile

Booked lunch at the game reserve. It was shocking how much was so wrong! Group of ten of us. Firstly the butternut soup served came with stale "fungus tasting" croutons. I ordered a salmon instead of chicken and feta sandwich on ciabiatta. It was served without the feta. Bit into the ciabiatta and it was chewy with white fungi forming...absolutely disgusting! My colleagues ordered spare ribs. Half got pork and the others beef. The beef was off, had a terrible smell and not edible! There was an order of a fillet steak sandwich.... The meat was burnt and tough. Chef needs schooling on how to prepare fillet!! Overall holiday experience and seeing as though we were staying at another Three Cities Hotel- it was evident that there's a trend of poor food service!!! Also heard from the staff that before it was taken over by Three Cities it was a better game lodge. I wouldn't waste money going there again!
