We went to eat prawns before going to the Kruger Park and were very disappointed by the prawns. The taste was very disappointing ( in Afrikaans we would describe them as " meelirig"). When we mentioned this to the manager his reaction was that they had been "cooked too long". This was not the problem but the quality was the reason. The waiters were very friendly and helpful but this could not compensate for the bad quality of the prawns.

We went on a weekday, maybe that was wrong to choose, but we had a poor evening. We were put in a room, all by ourselves where they didn't come check on us. We had twice to ask for the waiter to come and help us. The food was poor: rubbery halloumi (that squeaked while chewing!), chicken breasts that were definitely warmed up and filled with a still cold spinach/feta mixture, dry fish (I believe it was the kingklip), very very chewy beef (some pieces plainly inedible) in the trinchado and cold rice pudding with a thick skin on top (so definitely not fresh). Best thing we had all night was the garlic bread! I have never seen my two table guests eat with so much dislike. Ugh, never again!

Our party had a great welcome from the manageress on duty and she was fully attentive at all times. The buffet looked very appealing but we decided our appetites were not big enough so we ordered off the menu. Our choice of food was very good and the sushi excellent.

Coming from Tofo in Mozambique, we arrived late at our guest house in Nelspruit and were referred to the Adega for a quick dinner.

We were very pleasantly surprised by the atmosphere, service and excellent quality Portuguese food. My wife had the caldo verde soup and a salad, and I had the Portuguese rump steak. It compared well with the best expensive Portuguese restaurant in Sandton.

We will visit again.
