About The Cradle Restaurant

Enjoy languid visits in elegant surrounds flanked by the most amazing views in the country and architecturally inspired décor.

Embracing the elements of stone, steel and glass, diners soak up expansive views dining alfresco on the balcony. Sliding doors extend views from within the restaurant out and invite light and warmth from the breathtaking views, yet protected from the elements.

Planning a festive celebration or function? The Cradle Restaurant seduces with a banqueting hall, protected by double stable doors that open out onto an elegant room that invites the vast wilderness and starlit sky to dine.

Various dining choices wet the palate, from a la carte dining in the restaurant surrounds on breakfast - pumpkin, feta, basil and sweet corn fritters dressed with crispy bacon and maple syrup to kick start the day.

Dinner beacons with starters of cannellini bean and roasted peppers on bruschetta followed by free range roasted spring chicken with a natural jus and finally a decadent honey roasted pineapple with pistachios and coconut yoghurt for desert.

If the call of the African wild sets the mood, dine by moonlight in the dry stone boma on succulent spit roasts warmed by a roaring fire. Romantic 3-course catered picnics in the bush invite colonial style dining in private and tranquil surrounds.

However you choose to dine, The Cradle Restaurant awakes the senses with visual and decadent dining surrounds in heart of a world heritage site.

Our first visit to The Cradle Restaurant and what an experience!The setting was exactly what we envisaged. The food was cordon bleu and the service was professional despite pressure on the kitchen. The arrangement of tables was conducive towards the intimate atmosphere. Next time we will arrive earlier to see the sun set over the bushveld.

After several good lunches and dinners at this restaurant I was extremely disappointed after being served the worst, overcooked sirloin with no flavour whatsoever. Several other guests at our table had the same dish and most of us could not get past the second bite. Utterly disappointed, will never return.

Wow what an amazing place, the four course meal was divine and the game drive was breath taking, what a beautiful place to take the family.
