The evening starts with a glass of bubbles then the owner, Rudolph starts in a funny way to explain what tonights dinner many will be. There is so big enthusiasm in his words that it must be excellent; and it was ! With the paired wine also always with a short info about the served wine, everything fits together. Simply... More

At the beginning of the evening the owner Rudolph told us about the menu of the evening in a very loud and exaggerated speech. We had dinner in a lot of different and high level restaurants and normally the courses are explained in a desdreetly manner at the table. So we wondered how the evening will be. The food was...

There isn't such a thing as 101% but if there was I'd give it in this instance. It was a lesson in customer service from both the owners and their staff and that's before you talk about the food which was faultless.

What a wonderful experience to dine there! Very personal and familiar and the food is extraordinary. Weather permitting you can sit outside with beautiful view of the laguna. Lizel the Chef and her husband really pamper the guests. The Restaurant makes a visit to Wilderness worth it

This was the last meal in our short 10 day 'Taster' trip to South Africa. Well, we thought we would go there for the wine tasting but were staggered by the high quality of the restaurants. And Serendipity is among my top 3 for the whole trip. We were treated extremely well from the moment we were picked up at... More

I booked the restaurant in advance based on recommendation from the hotel I was staying at. I was looking forward to it and it surpassed my expectation at such a reasonable price. Its a small restaurant with only a few tables but perfectly formed. The host and hostess and out of this world - Lizelle and Rudolph who cook the... More
