A bit disappointing after reading all the good reviews. The view was stunning, but sadly they had very few menu dishes available. Friendly service. In the end, the food was simple and nice.

We only had a coffee and a milkshake here so it is unfair to rate the restaurant. The view from the viewing deck was however 5 star stuff. The property in general looked a bit tired (stuck in the 1970s or 80s).

Hello Phil R,
Thank you for your kind review. The restaurant is currently going through a change of ownership and upgrade. Unfortunately during the interim, the business can't be out on hold as the staff rely on a monthly income.

The restaurant name will soon be published as " Ginger & Thyme" so watch this space! :)

We were warmly received by our hosts and were given a delicious tea. Great walk to the Umtunvuma Gorge look out point

We went there yesterday for lunch and to view the gorge. I was very impressed with this little restaurant. We had salads and the apple crumble with ice cream. The food was delicious and well prepared,and the staff are ultra friendly and helpful. The view of the gorge is well worth the visit, at a cost of R5.00 each, payable at the restaurant or an 'honesty box' on the wall outside.The silence is deafening, and amazing .I felt the only downside, is the decor is a little tired.
