We come here all the time, the restaurant side is classic Hippo Creek, slightly on the higher price, but the food is always amazing, try the chef's specials rather than the standard menu that is always there. The bar side is great value for money, if you are thinking of just getting steak and chips for dinner, sit on the bar side and enjoy a scotch fillet for just $26, rather than sitting in the restaurant and paying $35ish just because it comes with a side salad! The tavern side also has great daily specials, including buy one meal get one free, and half price meals with a drink purchase! A nice place to sit and watch some sport, have some tapas or a meal, and reasonably priced drinks!

Went with a scoopon voucher and glad we did. Got told it was for the lounge area. Luckily we found a table and high chair, hard to eat off the small table.
We ordered
Aranchini balls which tasted terrible
Salt n pepper squid was yum
Turkish bread and dips where cold and dips all tasted horrible. Good size meals though. Hubby got ribs n chips. Was yummy but over priced and nothing to rave about. Food came out quick.
Lovely atmosphere with cricket on the tv and live music.
Overall woundnt go back

OK high turnover food, not worth the fine dining prices! A little too noisy for my liking, think I'll stick to the fine dining.

Visited Hippo Creek for the first time on Sunday and on ordering a drink was offered a free hamburger. The promotion is between 3.30 and 5.00 every Sunday. Expecting a small slider we were surprised when it arrived on a full size bun and it was really tasty. The menu looked good and we will return one day to sample some of the other meals offered.

Even on a Tuesday night the restaurant was busy -a good sign.
The decore was nice but a little plain considering. The metal chairs were uncomfortable and our table was very close to our neighbour (I was conscious not to bump them). We had the mushrooms for starters. They were extremely tasty, but came out so hot that they burnt my mouth (warning: hot filling inside).
The main course was Botswana beef. The beef itself was magnificent. Cooked to perfection and flavoursome. The mashed potato it came with was only ok (not creamy).
Desert was a small pudding and ice cream. The pudding itself was a little bland for my liking but there was some berry sauces which gave flavour to the icecream.
Staff were friendly and attentive. Service was very quick.
Unfortunately it was the atmosphere that let the venue down. It was too noisy to talk to my partner much. At the risk of sounding like a snob, the table next to us had two lads who arived in board shorts, thongs and caps - not really what we expected for a restaurant evening meal. Not saying that this is formal dining, but wear some shoes and take off the hats at least lads!
Prices were expensive considering.
