“A "Bush" type restaurant in White River”
Reviewed 15 May 2014 via mobile

The name says it all! With very rustic tables, some under canvas and some in the garden, it's an experience. The pizza oven is ready to go for their special Breakfast pizza which my partner thouroughly enjoyed.

Its quite a noisy spot as it is on the main road to Nelspruit but we sat far back in the garden so the traffic noise was muted.

The menu is fairly extensive, wth emphasis on South Africa dishes.

There is a large play area for the children.

As one does not expect 5* dining in this setting, we have no complaints except that the flies were a bother.

Service was good although the place was very quiet (approx 11.00 hrs) so cannot commit on service levels during busy times.

“Not good service”
Reviewed 4 April 2014

We went for lunch on the Monday afternoon 31 March but the excuses of not having stock of various menu items was not acceptable. The waitress was definitely not willing to assist and did not make us feel welcome.

“Braaivleis (BBQ meat) with a great vibe”
Reviewed 2 April 2014

I visited Affipad Boskombuis for dinner with friends. It's a great place with a really good spirit to it. I had the beef sosatie which was a little overdone but good nonetheless. The prices are very reasonable (quite cheap!) and it's a bit like having a big braai (bbq) with mates, but someone else is making the food. The waiters and owners are really friendly and helpful.

“Wonderful, authentic - local is lekker!”
Reviewed 7 January 2014

Spent the weekend in Whiteriver, was delighted to find this place! Good food, cold beer and decent prices. Even gave their sushi a try, some of the best I've had! (Living in Jhb, regular sushi eater, I was pleasantly surprised!) Menu has some proper local food like roosterkoek, sosaties, tripe (:S), their burgers and pregos are served on roosterkoek instead of rolls, they serve lamb spit on Sundays, with a kiddies play area, wheelchair friendly access all over, what a find. You can either sit outside under the trees and have a cold one, or sit closer to the bar under the tented area where they have fans to cool you down. Whole place has been decorated with re-purposed items, making the whole place super interesting. Great atmosphere, really reasonably priced, great spot for families / friends / couples. We loved it so much, we went back there twice! Wish they were in Jhb :( Really worth a visit!
