Chef Trevor and his Family makes this Restaurant what it is! Always something new on the menu to sink your teeth into! The food is out of this world yet simple good family food, with a wine list & cellar that will make you a wine lover! The service is amazing with staff that always smiles, from kitchen staff to his 4 daughters!
Chef Trevor and Debbie, keep doing what you are doing cuz you've got a winner of a Restaurant.
Hope to see you soon!

“Hamiltons - a must for every visitor to the Lowveld!”
Reviewed 14 July 2013

Fantastic restaurant with great service & fantastic food!! There are so many great dishes - home made pastas, pork belly - my all time favourite, fantastic deboned chicken, brilliant Mozambique prawns, amazing steaks & venison!! Amazing place to have fun with friends or as a couple. Kids love Hamilton's with a great lawn & play structure to have fun with the other kids. Cricket on the lawn is the best for the boys!

“Warm and inviting atmosphere, paired with a great food and wine experience.”
Reviewed 13 July 2013

Overall an exellent experience at Hamiltons. Never fails to impress the locals and tourists. With a wide variety to choose from on the menue, from fresh salads to pastas, steaks and poultry, sea food and a scruptious selection of home made deserts. Along with friendly service and a warm atmosphere, Hamiltons is a favourite.

“Consistency?”
Reviewed 11 July 2013

We have been visiting since Hamiltons opened. The food quality began high, dropped over the years but is pleasingly good again. Interesting wine list, creative presentation, and well worth a visit. As regulars, we are disappointed that the menu has hardly changed at all over the years. Very few seasonal specials, especially in summer when the lowveld has so much variety on offer.

“Fantastic - not to be missed!”
Reviewed 5 July 2013

If you are anywhere in the Malelane area or coming out of the Malelane Kruger Park gate, pop into Hamiltons. We had a fantastic lunch sitting on the deck overlooking the lawn - where your children can play. The wine list is extrensive and menu exciting, with something for everybody.
The colonial style building is in keeping with the name - Stevenson Hamilton was the first ranger in the Kruger. Well worth a visit!!
