4 of us went booked for Sunday lunch. A rainy day so not very busy at all. There was no-one to meet and greet nor seat us. We had reasonably quick attention to get the drinks order in but thereafter the service was extremely slow. There was no-one checking up only the predictable bread was offered to keep the hunger...

This was recommended to us by family. We went there today, the waiter was sweet but a but dozy. We ordered ostrich carpacio, the meat was cut too thick. I ordered Kudu fillet, it was extremely tough and chewy. It should not have been flame cooked as the meat was terribly tough. Steaks that were ordered medium rare came rare.... More

Great staff, great steak and absolutely great value. Very highly recommended by locals in Hazyview for a reason and we were not disappointed at all. Easy location to get to and safe parking in the evenings for tourists - make sure you stop by on your stay!! (And order the Sirloin...)

We had dinner at Pioneers, it was just delicious! We ate some steak with vegetable sides. Everything was great! Rarely ate such tender meat! Our waiter, Descent was very interessed for us and always there with a smile on his face. I would recommand, to book a table in advance.

We went here when it was pouring with rain, without booking.. The managers greeted us openly and (even with being fully booked) managed to put together a table for us. The staff are extremely friendly, service is amazing.. And my BIGGEST compliments to the chefs.. Your food is absolutely AMAZING.. Will definitely, without a doubt, return again. Thank you for...

We visited Pioneers Grill after an absence of 18 months. The restaurant had moved from its previous venue (Rendezvous Centre) to Perry's Bridge. As a result we were 3/4 of an hour late arriving (due to a tremendous thunderstorm and going to the old venue first). We were sat on the verandah (after wiping the bench dry - not even... More

We picked this place for 2 reasons: the grear Tripadvisor reviews and the lovely big jungle gym. Please be warned. The food is great BUT the massive let down is service. Are you happy to get up to ask for: your bread basket, napkins, salt, pepper, tomato sauce? If so this is the place for you. Waitrons spoil the experience... More

I decided to have dinner at the grill on 27 December. The food was average but slightly high prices and the service was bad... we waited an hour for food and not to mention the drinks didnt exactly arrive as ordered. Plates are piping hot when brought to the table and huge, making the food look tiny in comparison. Had... More
