Villa Luso

Reviewed By Mica L - Somerset West, South Africa

Saw adverts around town of really good deals on food at Villa Luso all over Phalaborwa and thought this must be the place to go. Ordered what was on special that day which was eisbein and chips never had it before and will never order it again, my partner ordered the same and he enjoys eisbein but also could not eat this dish, It was chewy and really not tasty my chips were burnt. Will give this one a skip next time.

Inhouse

Reviewed By 204sherylv - Phalaborwa

They offer great homemade type food - great pies to take home. Their breakfast is superb. After breakfast you can go walk around In-House and maybe even do a bit of household shopping. They have a lovely clothing and shoe section as well. Worth a visit!

This was my first time visiting and I'm not disappointed! They have a cute little shop with lots of different things, gifts, baked goods and just about something of everything. I only had coffee, the service was speedy and the atmosphere was great! I'd definitely visit again to eat something delicious.

Yurok Spur Steak Ranch

Spoil your family & eat out at Yurok Spur, we are the best steakhouse & burger restaurant in Phalaborwa. Bring along your kids for some great tasting food & dessert from our famous Spur menu.

Reviewed By njuull - Phalaborwa, South Africa

Service terrible
Takes long to take drink orders
They mess up a simple thing like a milkshake, after you send it back, comes back worse and even though you informed the waiter that you can't dink it, still get charged for it. Kids entertainment is terrible, most if not all the video games don't work, the only play area is only designed for very small kids that leaves the little bit older kids bored.

Calabash Grill Restaurant

Reviewed By vavania - moscow

1. Don't know difference between beer and sider
2. Don't have Wi-Fi for clients
There a battalion of waiters in large empty room. It is better to spend time in Big Five grill and pub nearby - more friendly, less pathos.

Our room were comfortable, and detail to everything was presence. The staff are professional and quickly arranged a night safari game drive for us and a rivers safari, without hassle. The breakfast was freshly prepared with fresh ingredients and of high standard. Location to Airport is close where we gave back our rental car before flying out.

Chef Mo's Restaurant

Reviewed By Mpho m - Phalaborwa

I visited the restaurant on a Friday night, and even though the ambience around wasnt the best, the food made up for it. I highly recommend the Soul food section of the menu, where i had tripe and my wife had oxtail with muffin shaped dombolo, which was very delicious. A tad overpriced to have to buy tripe for R120+.
