Amorello Sunset Deck Restaurant and Bar

Reviewed By Garth M - Ballito, South Africa

Having enjoyed my visit to this establishment 18 months ago , I comfortably recommended it to my UK family. What a disaster. Three different pizzas were ordered and there was no way that one could distinguish the difference , or what was on the pizza apart from a thick layer of tasteless cheap cheese. My wife tried a starter but wanted vegetables with it. The veg was cold , hard and was obviously left overs from the night before. A pity as the setting and service was great.

Wimpy

Reviewed By Cary BA L - Hluhluwe, South Africa

This wimpy is situated in a petrol station, not a great location. The traffic and noise are horrendous, the petrol fumes and the fumes from the septic tank made me decide not to even enter the restaurant. Although l did see that there were quite a few people eating there l was not prepared to take the chance.

Oodles of crocodiles and even the odd American alligator are on view in this odd commercial park, which on a mid-morning visit was devoid of other visitors. The woman I take to be the manager was quite unpleasant and unwelcoming, although the rest of the staff was pleasant enough. On the whole an unsettling experience.

Fig Tree Cafe & Deli

The Fig Tree Cafe and Deli is a gorgeous little restaurant in rural Zululand. All meals are freshly prepared to order. Seating is available indoors and outside on a shaded patio. For those wanting a real al fresco experience, meals can be enjoyed under a splendid Fig Tree. Also on the premises is a children's play area, a craft shop, a museum and an indigenous plant nursery.

Steers

Reviewed By MimieW - Spokane, Washington

Coming home from our 3-day Safari at the Hluhluwe Game Reserve, this was just the right stop on our drive back to Durban. It's location is perfect, just off N2 South. We grabbed milkshakes which we enjoyed for the rest of our drive. I noticed there were a huge selection of food to choose from: breakfast, lunch and dinner. Everything was very affordable too.
The gal who waited on us and prepared our order was smiling and friendly.
