I was quite excited to go check out Hippo Creek as I heard a lot of good things about this place in the past. The restaurant was busy and had a lively atmosphere, but I didn't really feel as though I was fully immersed into an African themed restaurant (the same way you truly know you are in a Mexican restaurant by the decor, the music, the way the staff dress, the drinks menu and the food...). The service was ok nothing exceptional. Would've been nice if the maître 'd had thanked us for our custom, rather than immediately proceeding to reset our table once we had stood up from our chairs. I had a steak from the specials menu, which was cooked well but not piping hot when it arrived at the table, the flavour was ok, but I did opt for the cheaper scotch filet as most of the steaks were beyond my price range ($45-$80). For the prices they are commanding, I was not wowed enough to say 'I would go back again'.

Have been to this restaurant a few times and have never been disappointed. Food is always of a high standard and have never had an inferior dish. Staff are always friendly and more than efficient. Always recommend this place.

We booked a table of 4 for lunch. We decided to share the Mixed Entree Platter, what a great choice. A tasting plate comprising of buffalo chorizo, spicy wings, slow roasted lamb ribs, droewars, olives and the amazing 'mud huts' (mushrooms filled with feta, chilli & herbs)

Our mains were pork spare ribs (half size), fillet steak (medium rare - cooked to perfection) lamb rump and Lion Kill (steak & pork spare ribs) The meals were a very generous size and beautifully cooked & presented, the wine list is excellent. All in all a very pleasurable gastronomical experience. The 'mud huts' are a must for anyone that enjoys mushrooms. We will definitely eat here again.
