We got to say good bye to one of our best. The choice for lunch was easily made and not regretted. Everyone could enjoy their choice of drink. Pizza. Pasta. Even fish. Everyone enjoyed their choice of lunch. The atmosphere was buzzing and the service good.

We are here several times as a family when we were in Hoedspruit. Very good value and tasty meals. Excellent pizza, pasta and tuna salad. Also enjoyed the cold jugs of water with lemon in the very hot weather. Nice shady location under the trees.

The food was nice, but a bit on the pricy side… not a lot of choice of fish (beyond hake and prawns); a number of different types of pizza though. The table areas were also nice, though the tables outside on the deck are a little dark at night due to the only lighting coming from the fires and the... More
