“5 star restaurant, good food and great service”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 17, 2013

Walking down Dullstroom high street we decided to eat at the Mayfly as it was one of the only pubs in town that did not have the final of the 20/20 cricket on really loud. It is a beautiful setting, well laid out and was very cosy with a roaring log fire. Service was attentive and all of the staff were smiling chatty and helpful, something not always found in South Africa. After a week eating on braai's in the Kruger a menu with a wide choice of meals from fish, pasta, and meat dishes went down very well. Orders were taken quickly and drinks very soon brought to our table. Meals were cooked promptly, good size portions, good quality and well cooked. We all seemed to have room for desserts and again there was a good choice,everyone seemed pleased, although the only disappointment was the use of frozen strawberries in the pan fried strawberries and caramel sauce, were fresh strawberries too much to ask for. Due to the current exchange rate, the meal including drinks was very reasonable. It was interesting to see the cliental were all young " yuppie" types obviously on a weekend from Joberg, and perhaps that is reflected in the quality and choice of food and the friendly attentive service. As nice touch when we left ( being the last to leave) was the staff lined up by the back door to say goodbye.
Would reccomend to anyone stopping in Dulltroom for a good quality meal with great service.

“Stop in for a quick bite, it's worth it”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 30, 2013

Our tour guide brought us here on the way back from safari to Joberg. They have inside and outside seating, we chose to sit in. Service was prompt and everyone got their orders in. My wife and I ordered BBQ chicken salads that were quite tasty. A coup,e of the guys ordered pasta dishes in different sauces and they quickly gobbled them up and lastly our other friend ordered a regular salad. The town offers lots of restaurants and shops to browse. I'd recommend stopping in Mayfly to satisfy your appetite.
