The restaurant is the same group who runs the one at Mopani camp Tindlovu group and there have been very good reports on both there and at B & D. :thumbs_up:

Rolypoly, we stayed in Berg en Dal over December 2013, we ate at the restaurant numerous times, the food was tasty, the prices very competitive, the presentation was most appealing and the staff were very attentive. what shocked us the most was that on 01 January 2014 the restaurant was open and fully functional at 8.00am, well worth a visit, sit outside, the view is mesmerizing

tentdweller you've said it best :clap:

When we ate there over December, I kinda got side tracked with the view, the birds and everything else......and the food was complimenting the whole ambiance

I was there early june 2014. The service was really well behaved and friendly.

First evening good meal, ostrich kebab and pizza margherita. Good value for money.

Second evening, same meal, topped with a greek salad. Not the same! Not well presented, and no good taste. The service realised our disapointment and offert fee coffee :clap:

I think, this was not the cook from the day before.

But give the restaurant a try, the surrounding outside is lovely, also inside it looks great. And if you are lucky, you get the first cook :lol:

Wonderful to have that to look forward to COS! :thumbs_up:

If you have a look Index to Best unit numbers you will see # 26 is listed there but sure there will be more than 1.
But sure others who have stayed in them will offer good advice.

Hi Cape of Storms. We stayed in unit 26 in Sept last year. It's by the fence and we had an elephant, warthogs, baboons, vervets, waterbuck, impala and 2 unmentionables all entertaining us. We only spent one night at Berg en Dal but it was magical :D
