“Fantastic place, fantastic meal and fantastic Girls!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 7, 2010

Went here the night before we got married in Wilderness. Only managed to get a table by Gerald and JD from Wilderness Manor having great connections with the 'girls' Roxanne and Cheri.

It was well worth it, we had the most fantastic evening and the food was truly excellent. The atmosphere is fun and buzzes. The staff are brilliant. Will certainly make an effort to eat here again when next in Wilderness. Don't be put off by it's location beside the petrol station, you could be anywhere when your inside!

“Excellent! prepared with much detail and care”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 16, 2010

To clarify: In Wilderness Village there are min. 11 restaurants, plus Roses Steak restaurant 1 km away, the other min. 6 restaurants are in the Mall, 6 km drive away.
I often eat at the Girls myself and rate this restaurant the No. 1. There are total Rita 20 restaurants closeby!
The quality/price/service/cleaniness/atmosphere is excellent. As I send all my guests to THE GIRLS, I get the reviews first hand!! (We have a guesthouse across the road) .
So there are just never complains, but only praises, except the deserts could be larger. Bon appetit....Rita

Very good food, strange position as it is in the forecourt of a petrol station! Nice atmosphere!

“A little gem in Wilderness”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 22, 2010

We discovered The Girls on the internet and booked a table via email before we left for our three week trip to SA. The Girls is situated in an unlikely location alongside a petrol station in Wilderness village, don't let this put you off as you will be in for a great evening once inside. It is a very popular venue for locals and tourists alike. We received a very warm welcome and after perusing the interesting and varied menu we ventured upstairs with our glasses of wine to look around the locally produced craft items they have for sale, there is no obligation at all to buy, but we defy you not to find something fascinating to take home. Our meal was absolutely delicious, plentiful, and very nicely presented. During our meal Roxanne came out from her very busy kitchen to say hello to her guests - a nice touch.
