Hottest time of the year in December. Not all ceiling fans in working order. No air conditioning. Do not feel like eating in such a hot environment so we did not really enjoy this experience.

We were on the main highway headed to Durban and needed to break the journey for a bite to eat. The thought of fast food didn't appeal and I am so glad we decided to drive a couple of kms out of our way to this little gem. Great food,service and ambience. It was well worth the detour!

The restaurant might not win any design awards but that is not what we were looking for.
The food was very good. Portions are not overly big bur definitely worth their money.
Fir us the best thing was to finally find decent fries that are fried hit and long enough and were crisp.
Also the management was very kind.
Overall a place I would go again and nicely situated with being so close to the weavers which makes for a good gift shopping.

We had venison curry, which could be anything from a duiker to a kudu and of course it was quite decent. Some of the meat soft and some a little chewy as it would be for the larger antelopes. The price is not cheap. The place has a nice curio shop that could be tried. Service was nice!

The fig tree is under new management and WoW, what a pleasant change. The zulu chicken panini is really nice with a spicy beetroot salad. The deli and siting area is also a welcoming change. Cant wait to enjoy more food while relaxing in the garden with plenty of bird watching.
