A tranquil setting and good place to unwind & relax with kids. Food is good. Limited seating and slow service if you are in a hurry. You can catch up on some reading, newspaper or just relax & enjoy the music. Staff are very helpful and friendly.

We were not guests at the Palace of the Lost City but we decided to go to the Tusk Bar based on the other reviews. We were not disappointed.

We had a lovely evening sitting outside on the terrace of the Tusk Bar. The service was fantastic and the food was good (up market gastropub sort of style). Cocktails to begin, a shared starter, one main course each, one dessert plus one liqueur and a couple of G&Ts only set us back about £90 all in. We weren't guests... More

Got there, and was as always, friendly greeted by Christina. We ordered our drinks, and a nice snack bord, with plain cassew nuts, peri peri cassew nuts and green olives arrived. The menu at the Tusk bar has changed for the better and we are very delighted about it! I had, as usual, the chicken strips, they are absolutely to... More

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.
