“Great variety”
Reviewed May 31, 2012

A wide variety of unusual dishes, including crocodile, kudu, calamari and local fish. The three of us each had something different. Steak was delicious, trout was delicious and crocodile kebabs were fairly like chicken! Desserts were lovely and all served by a cheerful, smiling waitress. If we are passing through Sabie again we will definitely go back.

“The crown of Sabie”
Reviewed May 7, 2012 via mobile

We ate here twice during our stay in Sabie, mostly because we wanted to come back and try more of the delicious specials. Do order from the blackboard, it reflects their best meals. I can recommend the crocodile curry, and especially the trout with pineapple and almonds, what a combo! The pizzas were nice too, trout salad was average. Service was good and the waitress even remembered us from two days before.

“Great Food”
Reviewed April 12, 2012

This restaurant was recomended to us by the owner of our accomodation and it was a great reservation the food was of great quality; crocodile, kudu, mussels and calamari and plentiful too. All the dishes tested delicious and to pass the short time while you wait for your food the carft shop sells beautiful, high quality bags, jeweller, ornaments and artwork. The bill was very reasonable too, around £15 per head, a great find.
