They grow their own vegs ! So indulge in the most delicious vegetarian dish and kudu carpaccio ! Original setting, warm welcome ! One of the best restaurants in Addo, no doubt.

We had an excellent meal with a lot of delicious vegetables for a good price. Also the view was really nice, I would recommend this place to everyone who is staying in the Addo Elephant National Park area.

To get to the place, is not so amazing, people watching you from the petrol station with liquor store on the right...

BUT the entire experience was amazing from when we checked in the lady there was so cheerful , the rooms were modern and clean and that bed! We booked in as self catering, so they arrange a webber to be set up for us! Amazing views over the river and the whole atmosphere... I could live here...

I absolutely love that they display their veggie garden to the public and you can walk through it, i got some tips there as well! It really homily and I would visit again!

The view of the sunset! Extraordinary !

Thank you River Front Estate!

It's fair to say the River Front isn't the best looking place from the outside - down a potholed track to essentially a large metal barn - but it is SO worth a visit.

Firstly, it's in an incredible location. As the name suggests, you have the river winding its way past you and all sorts of birds and wildlife flitting past. The restaurant interior is clean and well laid out, and there is even a chill-out area with tv and sofas for people to enjoy!

The hosts are amazing - so friendly and welcoming, giving a real homely feel as they chatted to us while our food was being prepared.

The food took a while, but this was explained to us and our wine was topped up while we waited. You could immediately see why it took a while when it arrived - every element had been perfectly prepared and cooked, the meat (wildebeest) was stunningly good and the veg was so fresh as it had come straight from their garden.

An incredible dining experience!

This is the friendliest restaurant we have ever been to!
Dave and Janine make you feel so welcome and the fillet steak with the ten vegetables must be unique.
Watching the sun go down overlooking the river only adds to the experience.
We stayed in the adjoining accommodation and also enjoyed delicious breakfasts. A special thank you to Janine for opening up especially, to give us breakfast on our last day.
We hope you will soon have a bigger sign by the road directing more people your way.
