Had a wonderful Sat. lunch sitting on the Hennops River enjoying the warm winter sunshine
Africa is so good sharing with us. Quite expensive...appetizers averaged about R85...main course average R155...dessert R65. Wines very very expensive...3 x mark up atleast. But
good wines to chose from.
Service was poor to average. As long as you don't mind pouring your own wines and waiting
quite some time for your waiter to come around you will enjoy the day. We had a beautiful warm
winters day sat out on the deck and enjoyed being in the sunshine.
Main meal was very good! Dessert was average! There were four of us...one bottle of wine,
no appetizers, 4 main courses..2 desserts...bill was R1000 plus tip!
Will go again on a special occassion.

A hidden treasure! Definitely a must for a Sunday lunch - the food is absolutely amazing. Kiddies entertainment kept the children busy while the adults enjoyed the peaceful atmosphere next to the river.

Being from Cape Town, we are always looking for new places to eat 'al fresco'. The Riverside Country estate is on beautiful grounds next to the Hennops river. It's only a 1/2 hour drive out of Fourways and truly lovely.

We enjoyed the special Easter lunch they had, and it was a spectacular culinary experience. The scallops were perfectly cooked, as was the chicken in parma ham and the cheese platter was to die for! They also had tables separately with parents with kids and for smokers (nice touch). There was an Easter Egg hunt and the kids were all entertained and kept away from the 'grown ups food' with their own special buffet. All in all, a great experience.

Great environment and meal. If you like the outdoors then this is the place. A short drive outside of JHB north in the bush but worth it. If outdoor entertainment then it is a must

Had a lovely Sunday lunch at al Fiume. Louise Carver was playing which added to the lovely surroundings. It is really very beautiful sitting right on the river and a true hidden gem, in that sense. If found the food somewhat overpriced for very 'average' food.
The setting is gorgeous, but the quality of the food needs to be improved... (It wasn't BAD, but could be BETTER.)
