“Great and quick food in an exotic place”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 12 May 2014

Went there for a couple of beers and asked for the food. It was delicious and plentiful. Definitely recommending this place. The only bizarre thing is the stuffed crocodile and monkey on it's back hanging on top of your head when you eat. Pool table is always good as well :)

“Great place to eat lunch”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 30 December 2013

We went to The "Shrink" on May 2, 2013 and ate lunch. I had the fish platter. Excellent calamari, shrimp and fish & chips. The view was amazing. There were impalas wondering around on the grass and a beautiful pond close by. I would highly recommend it.

“Good restaurant in s nice setting”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 July 2013

There are actually 2 restaurants on the premises. The "Shrink" is more of a coffee shop, while the proper Machauka restaurant provides a whole array of dishes, from steak to seafood and a lot in between.

There is ample parking on the premises. There is outside seating for the Shrink. There are 2 bar areas on the premises, and private functions can be arranged. The restaurant is divided into 2 seating areas. I prefer the back room, with a huge fishtank on one wall.

Service is good and friendly, and the food really good quality. the selection of wine and other drinks is also good.
