The Girls is a busy place in Wilderness. So booking in advance is more than recommended. There in a large choice of seafood and meatdishes. The quality of the food is good and service is friendly.

Definitely one of my favorite restaurants in the Garden Route. Offers a wide range of food well presented but my favorite is the steaks. So well presented juicy and tender with always a surprise sauce or rather reduction. Tasty asparagus rocket and cheese. A taste feast you won't easily find. Nice quiet and body. Small and intimate. Great personal service

We were recommended by our hotel who organised a complimentary shuttle ride there and back. Although we were a last minute booking we were treated to prompt and friendly service by our waiter Keith who was excellent.

You cannot stay in the Wilderness without a visit to The Girls Restaurant. Best prawn ever and the service was fabulous. Book well in advance or you might be disappointed.

Paradise Cove recommended this restaurant to us. The service was impeccable and helpful. Although it was busy the night we went (I think it's always busy), our waitress was always smiling. We left the largest tip of our trip here. The food was excellent and we had to take away a box so that we could finish all the food.

Another terrific meal. The tasting plate starter and the kingclip (fish of the day) with the stir fry were superb. The staff, as always, work very hard. Perfect meal, well done everyone.

Had a couple of dodgy moments getting ourselves booked in here but so worth the persistence. Online bookings are offered but it is worth a follow-up phone call or popping In if you are in the area. That said, we were looked after beautifully and a table was found for our party of four along with a delicious glass of... More
