Tried this restaurant for first time today. Food was all right. Duck starter large and tasty but cooked really rare. Our fillet steaks lovely and tender. Ordered medium and all three were very very rare. The Creme brûlée and Tiramisu deserts were dead average. Whatever you do, do not order the water!! At R70 for 750 ml bottle "methinks" I... More

After visiting the establishment more than once, I found the restuarant to be great with a excellent outside area. The staff were great and quality of food was superb for a country riverside.

Situated in the banks of the Hennops river, this Italian restaurant's menu is very simple and you get what you pay for. The portions are big, Italian style of eating. Driving from Pretoria would take about an hour, almost 60kms via the N14, but the setting and views of nature will make it worth it. The restaurant is a typically... More

We had a stunning table next to the river however my expectations were soon disappointed. I had the duck which was was dried out and cold. I had the wafer chocolate desert which was not clear what it was on the menu, let's just say a five year old could have made this. The service was also very poor. I... More

The restaurant has a wonderful setting on the banks of the Hennops River. The whole ambiance is tranquil and peaceful. This review will be split into two, as we had both dinner and breakfast over the weekend. Dinner: In terms of the food, everything was lovely. The fillet that is served on cauliflower mash is fantastic and their pannacotta is... More

This outdoor venue straddles the picturesque Hennopsrivier and is charming in its appearance. Sadly though, a lot of this charm seems to have been lost since our last visit. The service was good - we had an attentive waiter who made sure all our needs were met. The food was disappointing. Very small portions for the price and it seems... More

We had a divine day at River Place Lodge. The food was out of this world. The head chef came around to welcome us. His food was delectable. His staff were friendly and helpful.
