Once Upon A Time @ Goblin's Cove

Once Upon a Time is a function, wedding and accommodation venue, where you can escape from the world into a playful fantasy world in the forest, where the possibilities are endless. We do fantastical weddings, have a quaint restaurant, riverside picnics and a very unique 1928 train in the forest, where you can stay over for a night

Reviewed By Priscilla M - Johannesburg, South Africa

Visiting this place was an absolute disappointment. It is old and run down and the food is below average. No this no sign of effort is being made to make improvements, even though a sign says they are. Do not waste your time hereIt is not the plastic flowers and walls covered with cobwebs from the 1800 scene anymore. We have a different vision and know the "old" crowd will not like it and we hope it happens sooner rather then later.

Black Horse

Black Horse offers a craft brewery & distillery with a lovely country style restaurant just outside Magaliesburg in Gauteng, just one scenic hour from Johannesburg. Situated on the edge of the Magliesburg river with lush green fields and majestic black horses, guests can take in the breathtaking views of the Zeekoeihoek Valley area. We offer a craft brewery & distillery as well as a conference venue and gift store. Black Horse is the ideal place for weddings, company meetings, business retreats, group retreats or just a very romantic getaway. Please note we are not pet friendly!

We visited the Black Horse as we had heard about it and were in the Magaliesberg area. It is a really lovely place to "kuier". Interesting beers - some nicer than others. And the food was nice but small portions for the price paid - very Joburg food. I would go back if in the area but wouldn't make a special trip.

We recently had a light lunch at Melon Rouge and were pleasantly surprised. The food was good and served in ample portions. Service was also good - as the food is freshly prepared it did take a little longer but we were enjoying the ambience...MoreThanks for visiting MelonRouge and taking the time to write this positive review.

We went for a Sunday lunch with friends,because we had stayed there two years ago for a weekend.The food, however well prepared had no wow-factor.The staff were wonderful and not intrusive.The winelist lacked finess and the variety was small.However,overall it was a pleasant experience.

Die Ou Pastorie

Reviewed By Karen J - Cullinan, South Africa

We were a party of 21, including 5 very busy toddlers for lunch. Understandably the food took quite a while to get done but was absolutely worth while waiting for. The waiters looked after us with care and the table was set with special detail to the fact that it was my mom’s birthday. A lovely experience!

Colonial Restaurant

Reviewed By burgerdnl - Pretoria, South Africa

As the key competitor of Black Horse, we expected a good atmosphere, upmarket venue, exceptional service and excellent food. And we got nothing like it at all. There is no menu, the decor is tattered and the prices inflated.

The Bru House & Diner

Reviewed By Boschie - Johannesburg, South Africa

Lots have changed since my first review two years ago. New management, new outside deck area, new menu, better beer selection and a new lease of life. The beers are cold and the service friendly. Live entertainment on the deck over weekends. Although this is a popular biker stop, more and more passers-by are popping in. Definitely worth a try.

Esther's Country Lodge

A contemporary restaurant and lodge in a country setting in the heart of the Magaliesberg mountain range. On arrival one gets an immediate impression of modern minimalism. The high ceilings add a sense of wide open spaces, accentuated ny exposed brick and wood. A lodge with a difference, decorated with glass art created by Frank van den Ham, using bold designs and bright colours.

Reviewed By Rogofor - Magaliesburg, South Africa

I'm gradually moving through the menu. And each visit is a delight. "One" and "Josephine" will serve you with quiet dignity, and Esther will definitely visit your table. On my last, but one visit, we were still sitting and enjoying the fellowship with friends and...Moreit's always a pleasure to see happy guests in our garden
