We are here 3 times during our stay at skukuza. The quality of food was far above anything else in the park and the service was much more attentive. The wines were also good. It is nice to watch the river too. Maybe they should have a restaurant at lower Sabie instead of mug and bean.

Went here for lunch and had a lovely salad sitting in the sun by the river. (There was shade and water misters) service was good. Could eat inside the restaurant if wanted to - looked far more formal. Only annoying thing from my point of view was other diners who were throwing there litter over the fence. I felt someone...

On our way from Sabi Sand Game Reseve we stayed in Skukuza for one night. We decided to go for dinner at Cattle Barons. Overall not too bad but it was boxing day and unfortunately some cuts of meat and other important ingredients were sold out. (Steaks on the bone, mushrooms and ice cream). Service was excellent and our waiter... More

Cattle Baron offers some good options; food is tasty and good portion sizes. Be prepared for slower service in the Kruger and use this as the ideal opportunity to sit back, relax and just enjoy the beautiful view from the deck. An ideal place to have a meal, especially if you don't want to prepare something in the day visitors... More

I travel here regularly on business. When one can get service, food is generally good and consistent. A tad slow, but remember where we are..in the slowveld

Getting the order wrong, after explaining to 3 people. (Explaining to accommodate a vegan guest) Then potato rosti cold, salad old, and an order of 4 waters turns into one glass of water. I do believe they try, though quality just not happening when I visited.
