“Wedding Reception! WOW”
Reviewed 26 August 2014

Lizelle & Rudolf… O MY WORD! is all we can say(there is actually a lot more that we can say but we don’t want to censor) when we think about your food. Lizelle your food really made us believe in Christmas Father, the Tooth fairy and all the other fairy tales that we thought no longer existed! Rudolf thanks to you and your magical wine pairings my husband and I are starting to think we are very hoity toity- although we need to show pictures of the wine we tasted to people, because we sound like idiots when we try to pronounce it! You guys rock! You are one of the coolest couples and made the evening so much fun. Thank you for giving the two of us and each one of the guest (even the two kiddies there) an food experience that we will forever treasure. And thank you for making our wedding cake- it was delicious None of us sitting at the table ever had the opportunity to taste, experience and fall in love with such a “taste of art”! Unfortunately food after that just never tasted the same, we now expect KFC Chicken Pops to taste like fine dining, which only means one thing… we better come and visit soon

“Not as good as we had expected”
Reviewed 5 August 2014

My son and daughter (both London foodies and over here on holiday) booked a table for the 4 of us, on the strength of Trip Advisor reviews, for dinner on my 73rd birthday.

We knew that Serendipity had a very good reputation and was priced accordingly and we were all looking forward to a leisurely evening of food delicacies and imbibing the odd bottle of the best South African wines.

Unfortunately Serendipity has a (I think pretentious) group introduction to the evening's menu offerings which was a bit laboured and the food whilst beautifully presented did not live up to our expectations.

I will wait a while for before testing the fare again. Meanwhile I will frequent another Wilderness restaurant for my culinary treats.

Loved the intimacy of the space, the service was great and the food was really interesting and tasty. Sorry we couldn't visit this time round as they were closed for annual hols. Next time!

Must go in Wilderness! Very nice owners, fantastic food and great location.We are food lovers and did research each restaurant we wanted to eat in SA before our 2 weeks trip. Serendipity did not disappoint its good reputation. One of our best dinner experiences we ever had in our live. Do not forget to reserve in advance.
