“Superb”
Reviewed 15 July 2014

Every one of the six courses was a delight - unusual and interesting mixtures of textures and flavours. Jacques assisted us with the wine pairing and was an absolute delight.

“Amazing food and service”
Reviewed 7 July 2014

We stayed at the Forum Homini hotel and had dinner and breakfast at Roots Restaurant. The Dinner was spectacular, they say it's a six course dinner, but they also gave us an amuse bouche and a sorbet and then because it was our anniversary the chef sent chocolate cake... Every single dish was amazing! The staff knew what they were serving every time and recommended how to eat it. The breakfast was also amazing...

“Fine dining, just great”
Reviewed 2 July 2014

We stayed at Forum Homini for the night and had dinner and breakfast. Dinner was a six course meal with wine paring for each course. The wine was ok. The meal was great. Each course better than the last. The best was the Springbok steak. Service was good but could have been better. A long meal but you need time to do it justice.
Breakfast - first time I've ever had a 5 course breakfast. It was delicious, the most memorable being the yoghurt mousse. This was a long meal, we arrived at the dining room at 7h30 and only finished at 9h00. So be prepared for a leisurely breakfast. The only reason why this does not rate excellent is because the coffee was cold and old - very disappointing. It might be worth their while to buy a N espresso machine

“Great for special occasions”
Reviewed 17 June 2014

I love this restaurant and we have been there to celebrate our past 2 anniversaries. The staff are attentive and the food is exciting and delicious. Every time we have gone there has been, we have been pleasantly surprised at the food combinations. The courses are timed beautifully and the atmosphere is lovely. 5 star or not, it is a wonderful place to celebrate food.

“5-star relaxed atmosphere”
Reviewed 21 May 2014

This is a hidden little gem in the Magaliesberg. Just an hour out of Joburg with splendid, affordable 5-star luxury and a 6-course set menu that you'll not forget. The service is excellent and the experience is definitely worth going back for.
