This is THE place to visit for the views and part of many of the organised day tours up Sani Pass. It was very busy over lunchtime on a public holiday weekend. The service was slow and the waiting staff seemed to lack knowledge on even what soft drinks they could offer. The prices are very high for what you get - toasted sandwiches cost R55 and were very ordinary. (dry, with little filling) My fellow travellers seemed to quite enjoy the trout on the bone for R85 and paid R25 for a beer. As the place does have to get all provisions up the pass which must be quite a logistics challenge, maybe this is acceptable. Perhaps smiling, friendly staff would help the experience and one may not notice the prices or long wait as much. Shepherds and horse trail leaders hover around outside but want to be paid for photographs which also detracts from the spot. No real alternatives as in this case position is everything.
