The Girls restaurant is hidden away and although it does not have views the restaurant was packed when we visited. Perhaps my expectations were too high...the team clearly aim to please but I expected the food to be slightly more modern and adventurous. The atmosphere in the restaurant is cosy and intimate. We enjoyed our dinner since the food was... More

We went here for dinner and were warmly welcomed. Our waiter James was super friendly and fun. The food was excellent, my first Kudu and enjoyed it very much. Definitely try the Frozen cheesecake, calories as a Main Course but it's so worth it!

We went to the Girls not knowing what to expect, and we were not disappointed! The service was some of the best I have ever received at a restaurant, especially considering how busy they were and the time of the year. The food was sublime, with the best prawns I have had in my life. The desert (frozen honey cheesecake)... More

Restaurant was recommended by a couple staying in the same hotel - so glad we took their advice and booked a table - the food was the best I've eaten for the money in Wilderness, George, Cape Town or Stellenbosch. The choice was superb - there were four of us who all ate something different and we all agreed it... More

It was so good we went there for 2 evenings out of our 3 night stay in Wilderness. My husband reckoned he had the best steak ever, that it was done to perfection. We also very much enjoyed their litchie, blue cheese and prawn salad (very unusual and so tasty) and the seafood platter. Excellent service in a friendly, fun... More

We had a great dinner but it is not priced for the local market. We only had a beer each and a steak and the bill exceeded R600 Parking was also a problem.

Dear Elize0101 Thanx for your review. We do believe that our prices are fair for what you receive. To have paid what you did, meant you would have ordered our trio of venison, which is 300g of three different venisons. There would have been veg, potato wedges and three different sauces. I ask you to please look at Cattle Barons,... More
