We didn't stay at the resort but did visit for breakfast and it was awesome! Huge buffet selection and all delicious, stayed warm and constantly refreshed! The kids even loved it with all of the selections!

We ate at this place against my husband's wishes. I should have listened to him. It's a beautiful restaurant with fun, African music. Our server was very nice and attentive. The food wasn't good at all. I think that we only found 2-3 items that we said were very good. The rest was either tasteless or just okay. Overall, it... More

We ate there for both dinner and breakfast. They were both great. The service was terrific. But if I had to pick, I'd say the breakfast was tastier. There was a nice variety of foods to choose from. It's so convenient in Kalahari and is right by the entrance. We'd visit again.

We came here for breakfast. Was expecting a bit more based on reviews. The staff was great and so friendly. The food was decent. I was disappointed the pancakes and pastries had hardened when we were there. Maybe it was a slow morning. They did have a large variety though.

They have decent offerings at this buffet, but the price ($20/adult) doesn't really offer a lot of value. Sure it is all you can eat, but the variety isn't as great as other buffets I have been to. We certainly left full, but would probably skip eating here in the future.

The breakfast buffet is really good; tons of options for all age range and tastes; from simple cereal to fresh carved sirloin. We had some really picky eaters with us and even they found things to enjoy at this breakfast buffet.

We ate here on Saturday night. Plenty of food choices made the kids happy. Beef carver went a little chinsy on the prime rib cut, but overall the meal was good. A little pricey, but that is to be expected if you are eating on resort property.

As "All you care to enjoy" places go, this restaurant is really good! There's a lot of atypical choices for adults and kids alike. We have done the breakfast and dinner services, and have really enjoyed them both equally. I think this is one of my favorite things about this water park.

3 adults, 2 kids, dinner on a Sunday night and breakfast on Monday... the food was amazing for a buffet. It had flavor, temperatures were maintained (especially for sensitive stomachs), the variety was extensive to include a kids buffet section tailored to them. I personally ate so much Monday morning that I didn't eat the rest of the day. I... More

We come to Kalahari every October and definitely look forward to the delicious breakfast buffet at the Great Karoo Marketplace. Each year I find a new an interesting menu item( Bruschetta eggs Benedict - yumm!) This is just one more reason to love Kalahari !
