“One of the best places for a good meal”

Lovely setting next to the Kowie river, comfortable seats, really romantic for that first date. Service was good, the food was well presented and delish.

“If this is Training ?”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 3, 2013

Since this is apparently a catering and hospitality school, one was led to believe, from the guide book, that both food and service would be impeccable... wrong again !! The food was the worst we had in SA, served cold, undressed, splinter bones in the lamb chop. Despite us leaving half plates, no 'did you enjoy your meal?' when they were removed. No idea what a Kir Royale was, and despite 8 staff to 4 customers, service was sloppy and slow. Very expensive and yet we got back to the hotel really hungry, and ate a packet of crisps !
