Duck 'n Dive Saloon
Ranked #3 of 7 Restaurants in Malelane
Certificate of Excellence
Price range: $5 - $18
Cuisines: Steakhouse, Gastropub
Description: We are the ONLY authentic PUB & GRILL in the area, offering a wide variety of dishes at affordable prices. "Restaurant of the Year" was only competed for once, in 2012, & Duck 'n Dive won the award. Established 11 years ago, it is a well known landmark and has great local support. We have 3 Tap Draughts on offer as well as a large selection of bottled beers, spirits and wines. Prices are geared at the locals so as a visitor, you can be sure that there are no surprises - we serve a wide variety of steaks, Prawns & Seafood, Pizzas are made fresh to order in our Wood Burning oven, & we have specials everyday to please the pocket as well as the pallet. We pride ourselves in providing great service and quality food - consistently. Our Upstairs venue is quieter, with more of a restaurant feel than the downstairs pub area. It's up to you, but the food is great, you are guaranteed to meet the locals and learn something about the area, Malelane Kruger Gate being only 5 minutes away North on the N4, you can ensure your stay in Malelane is warm and friendly, as well as being guaranteed the beer is cold after a hot day in the Park! Whilst we do not have a view of the River, you can witness stunning sunsets from our Upper Duck section. We have delicious meals, excellent Pizzas, topped with fantastic service. Our motto is "we don't do fast food, we do great food as fast as we can!" We have fun nights, including pool & poker competitions, and often have live entertainment on weekends. As the ONLY AUTHENTIC PUB in the area, we have just what you need to complete your visit to the Malelane area. Why would you choose anywhere else? Locals say: "you haven't been to Malelane until you've been to Duck 'n Dive!"

Stumbled across this place on our return from Swaziland looking for some food. The place was packed and hopping with locals from the surrounding area. This is not a tourist place but a real bar set up to serve the locals. Service was slow but the pizza was excellent (not unexpected as i haven't found American standard fast service anywhere in Africa). While waiting i meet the owners and they made us feel welcome and appreciated.
