“"Fab" Food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 12, 2013

We've been here several years ago and remembered the personal touch. Service was excellent. Food was "fab". Winelist was also good. We enjoyed our dinner very much and we will hopefully be back soon.

“couldn't be better”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 2, 2013 via mobile

what a great night out at lizette & rudolf's place. the dinner is a whole evening experience, perfectely planned and delivered with passion. the dishes are super-creative and absolutely delicious. the little extras they make for their guests individually really make you feel like a star. if you stay in the wilderness area and don't visit serendipity, it is your own fault. these guys are simply perfect!

“Wow!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 31, 2012

We came across Serendipity quite by chance. And what a find! Fantastic setting, beautiful dining room, amazing food and service! We were welcomed warmly by Rudolf and the whole menu was explained in detail while sipping an aperitif on the verandah. Lizelle and her team served really excellent food from start to finish, particularly the springbok! Great value for money! We'll be back!

“Excellent!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 28, 2012

Beautiful setting overlooking the river - get there in time to sit on the veranda & enjoy sundowners.
Each item on the menu is well described. The service is very friendly & attentive.
The food is excellent. The springbok we had was delicious and cooked to perfection.
They have a very good wine list but I suggest the wine pairings.

Serendipity is a must do when in Wilderness!

“Hidden gem in Wilderness”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 23, 2012

The menu has a South African slant to it; including amasi and pap which is what you want from an unashamedly South African restaurant. The food is excellent and the service is outstanding and they offer good value for money. This is what attracts us to the establishment and ensures that when we are visiting the Garden Route we make it a point that we dine there at least once. I can assure you that if it is excellent food and outstanding service you are after, Serendipity is the place you are looking for. Rudolph and Lizelle are fantastic hosts and I am certainly looking forward to our next meal there. Please book well in advance to avoid disappointment.
