I have already favorably referred to this establishment in my review of FlyJozi, but De Hoek deserves special mention in a separate review. We landed by helicopter on the beautiful estate and had a reservation for breakfast. We were warmly welcomed and taken to the cozy restaurant. There is also seating available outside under the trees, weather permitting. The food was excellent and the service even better. There was always at least one or more of the staff available to see to our needs, without being overbearing. It was soon clear why this establishment have received so many awards in the past. I found the price for the breakfast more than reasonable and we were even served with a surprise birthday cake on the house. After breakfast we were taken on a short tour of the establishment and shown some of the beautiful rooms before we flew back to Grand Central. Definitely a place where one can spend a few nights to completely unwind.

De Hoek is the best kept secret in Magaliesburg. We were very blessed to have our wedding there on the 5th October. It was perfect in every way..... the owners are fantastic. The food is off the chart delicious - we invited our guests for "an exquisite luncheon experience" and it was nothing short of that! The food and wine pairing was brilliantly done. The owner believes that people need to show one another more kindness - and the staff understand this and practice it all the time. The service is phenomenal. The accommodation is pristine - a real spoil for a special celebration. The gardens are beautifully manicured, and everything is neat and tidy. The attention to detail is amazing. De Hoek was a dream wedding venue. It is a perfect weekend get away destination, or even for just a sunday lunch away from the city. You won't be disappointed!

We booked for the recent Restaurant week which took place and decided to do the trek all the way from Pretoria to the Magaliesburg and what a great idea! The setting of the establishment is just perfect and we saw that they are now extending the estate as well with more rooms/ apartments. The food was really superb from the starters to the desserts. The service went for a bit of a nose dive when our mains were served but we raised this and it was corrected very quickly. Next time we will do our planning around an overnight stay!
