“Shocking service”
Reviewed 20 July 2014

10 minute wait for table in a half empty restaurant.
Ice cold dish water sold as coffee - microwaved and returned to me after I asked for a replacement cup.
1 hour wait for a burger meal. Half the table received their meals 15 minutes after the rest and then the order brought to the table was incorrect.
Waiters unhelpful and unable to manage the busy service time.

“Mugg & Bean”
Reviewed 20 July 2014

Stopped over for lunch at the new Mugg & Bean facility at Lower Sabie. Better than the old restaurant/franchise by far but the portions are just ridiculously huge. Service was quite good

“Straightforward value”
Reviewed 1 July 2014

We stopped here for breakfast and did not regret it. The cappuccino was good and the meals were straightforward and tasty. Service was also very good. I do not know how it would be to have your main meal here, but the menu had many options that looked good

“Tasty, healthy food”
Reviewed 30 June 2014

We ate at Mugg and Bean, Lower Sabie, in June. There is a huge choice of food, from soups, pancakes, hot pots, salads, meats - we were amazed at the choices. All the meals we ate were well presented by attentive staff. We enjoyed the river views while eating, especially in the evenings, when it was fairly quiet. Lunchtime gets busy but was still pleasant. Watching Hippos and Elephants whilst eating was indeed special.
