My wife and I went to 5 places in Hoedspruit looking for a distinctive restaurant for dinner. Everywhere we stopped had long menus of standard tourist food (burgers, pizza, pasta, steaks). Sleepers was no different, we ate there because it was the last place we checked. The food surpassed our expectations, but the restaurant isn't much to write home about.... More

The atmosphere is really nice outside for dinner. The burgers are really tasty, the steaks are perfectly cooked (rare for me).

Is not on offer here. Good ambiance good food it seems but why pretend at authenticity when you cannot ring the bell. My eisbein sucked, but the rest of the party of 4 were appreciative of their choice from a pretty extensive menu. A good indicator usually that a broad range of offerings cannot provide excellence in all aspects. So... More

Dear bestbillbrown So sorry to hear that your eisbein sucked. we have many guests, and many of them simply love our eisbein, nowhere on our menu or advertising it says "best eisbein in the country", but i do believe in general we don't often do a really horrible one- so really terribly sorry for your bad experience. I hope that... More

We were a group of 16 and I have to say how long our food came out was laughable. The staff were pleasant but didnt seem to be bothered at the fact we were waiting over an hour and a half, near two hours for food. And when it finally came out, some peoples food was cold. Your food will... More

The building is an old station house and will have the odd train pass by really close. The food was great, the ambiance was great and the service was friendly, quick and very efficient. Our only concern was our vehicle parked outside with all our clothes and luggage clearly visible to vast amounts of locals who just seemed to loiter... More
