The location is great, overlooking the river. Really a fun atmosphere. The food service, unfortunately, was not very good; server couldn't figure a lot of things out. The food was average at best.

Had a wonderful afternoon at this venue. Reasonable prices and great food. Ordered a pizza , thin crust and fresh topping. Had the boerewors and rooster koek it was great. The setting is what make the place, rustic but good service with couches to lounge in. Hired the paddle boat and went up the river, had a swim it was great.

Beautiful place to send a few hours over brunch and longer. Don't expect fast service, everyone is relaxed and friendly and the food is great. Kids were happy swimming and renting the kayaks while the parents sat on the river bank and enjoyed the view. Food and drinks can be expensive though, but I suppose you're paying for the ambiance as well. Will definitely be back.

We have been here several times before and slowly seen it get worse. Sewage water from bathrooms were running into children's play area and down to river. Pizzas were terrible with barely any cheese or toppings and were underdone! It is sad 'cause we remembered it better.

Came here for a late lunch. Restaurant wasn't overly busy and there was a lovely rustic atmosphere. There are many different facets to this venue including boat hire , restaurant and it seems camping facilities. A great spot to hang around all day and do activities.

We ordered 2 chicken mayo sandwiches and a local dish comprising a homemade sausage with a homemade bread and a relish - very simple.

It took nearly an hour for this to arrive and what made it even more frustrating is people who came after us received their meal before us.

It seems management need to invest in some training and being present as the staff seemed very unorganised!

Such a pity as it is a great location.
