A really nice meal, with really nice staff and some INCREDIBLE views. Even if just for a coffee its well worth the stop, and please remember to pay before visiting the rock.

The most amazing view, this is Gods creation. The birds are just everywhere and are some that you never see around any more?

We stopped for coffee and a bite to eat. The waiter that served us was very friendly. He knew the menu very well and made good recommendations. I enjoyed a cup of coffee on leopard rock. It is a bit scary. Definitely worth a stop!!

How can a place olny open at 09:00. This is extremely disappointing. By 11:00 most successful simular establishments have made their money for the day. Not so sure about this sleepy place.

Start with the awesome views and birdlife from the restaurant, looking down into the Gorge and the mighty Umzimkulu river. The food was very good, homemade and affordable. Service is immaculate and waitresses very friendly and helpful. Very tranquil gardens, well kept. Ablutions very clean...More

We travel a lot and we love our coffee. This coffee shop features the best view that we have ever seen in a coffee shop. Great photo opportunity on a rock that extends almost over the gorge. Gooood Food and drinks.

Great views. The menu is simple but there are some good things on it like the tastiest, moist, homemade chocolate cake. The kids enjoyed their milkshakes. We have to make another trip there soon.

This owner run establishment is situated 26km from Port Shepstone in the magnificent world renowned Oribi Gorge valley in KZN. The set-up is very earthy and rustic with a warm relaxed ambiance.

Set on a rocky incline with sweeping views over the majestic Umzimkulu River Gorge. Enjoy this spectacular view from our 21m deck while enjoying one our home cooked meals prepared with love by Sue and her Team, listening to the soothing sound of the majestic Umzimkulu River rushing down the gorge. The garden and surrounding area is a bird lover’s paradise. The famous Overhanging Rock on the property is a must visit – look at the amazing history pictures dating back to the 1940’s in the Coffee Shop.

We would love to share our special little piece of heaven with you - come and enjoy our full menu (steaks, burgers, curry & rice, quiches, breakfasts, salads, sandwiches, ciabatta’s etc. and our selection of cakes). We are licensed.

There is a variety of activities, walks and attractions to explore in a 12km range.
