I always enjoyed taking a drive out here on a Sunday afternoon and enjoyed a home cooked style Sunday lunch buffet in a great setting but they don't offer the buffet anymore and the food just wasn't any good! Our waiter disappeared and we battled with service too. The last they saw of me!

A true gem just off Lynwood Beautiful koi pond's with boardwalk like trails. Nice restaurant to relax and have a bite with family and friends.

We had a family gathering here and really enjoyed the food and the time together. The place is big, spacious and well developed. Food is good but very predictable. Staff friendly and quick to assist. Definitely a place to visit again.

I always enjoy coming here. Love the atmosphere with the waterfalls but the food is "ok".. they can definately step up with their service, as we have to wait long for the food. But a nice place to come and buy some plants and when my kids were small I regularly brought them to play in the play area..

Beautiful setting for a meal, I love being outdoors. The service was good as was the meal, but not WOW! Just short of giving a 4... The cocktails were great! :-)

Sitting outside by the waterfall was really nice! The food was great and it was just a nice day out.

A 45 minute wait after our order was placed! Not good enough Safari, very disappointing. You have all the reason to be successful but poor service will kill the experience. If that was not enough a 20 minute wait for our bill was the last straw.

I love Safari. It delights all the senses. There are the most colourful seedlings, lush trees and plants, beautiful glassware, a swinging bridge, a tractor train for children and the loud smashing sounds of the waterfall. Koi fish swim in the pools as well as beautiful swans. The perfect escape. The restaurant caters for all tastes and is good value... More

Very slow service resulting in cold coffee and food. When I got my food it was dry with the incorrect topping. I sent it back and it came back with the topping that was missing but then they left another one off. Could not be bothered to send it back and wait another half hour. When it was time to... More

We visited the Safari Garden centre, and I took my family for Brunch. Big mistake. They will definitely not see us again. We were 5 people and when we asked to be seated at bigger table, or two placed against each other - I seemed a lot of trouble. The waiter was not very eager to assist us with the... More
