Great spot for a nightcap, although I wouldn't recommend their rooibos cappuccino - not nice at all. Great ambience, with nice background music.. Enjoyed it

Very poor service when we popped in for a drink. Would avoid if possible - a waste of time and money!

Such a peaceful cocktail bar that you can relax in after a hard day luxury sunbathing. Great range of drinks and coffee served by delightful professional people.

Loved, loved this bar. Came here for 2 nights in a row. Sat outside - beautiful evening. I could not fault it. Fantastic service from Lorraine on Friday night and then Lerato on Saturday night. We ended up not moving from here and eating dinner here. Delish Caesar salad and Cobb Salad. Peaceful, relaxing evening.

As per my other reviews on Sun City, the Tusk bar was our favourite restaurant/bar in all of Sun City (out of the 6-7 that we had tried). The bar is nestled away to the side just off the main Crystal Court (up on the reception level), and is cosy yet stylish. It looks out onto the gardens and also... More

Phantasia, our very capable and attentive waitron, recommended cocktails and also brought out the drinks and snacks efficiently. The setting is lovely, looking over the water and on to the pool. Relaxing and well stocked. Excellent venue.
