I have traveled to Swaziland 30-40 times over the last 10 years. Malandela's Restaurant and Shops are always a must do for lunch or dinner. The food is wonderful, with strong European influences.

Heard about this place from work colleagues and decided to go there for Saturday lunch. Firstly the staff did not tell us when we got there that the kitchen would be closing soon - this is something I feel guests should be told or it should be stated somewhere. Still not clear why the kitchen closes but sandwiches and dessert... More

Beautiful grounds, I liked that they had quite a few shops and wished we could have attended a show, but the service is sorely lacking from shop assistants to waitresses. If a customer doesn't feel valued then I have to question what the management wants to communicate, as these people are a direct representation of the establishment. The food was... More

This attractive country restaurant has a wide variety of dishes. All very well cooked and presented. We liked the steaks all cooked as you asked for them to be cooked. Hi Ken livers and baby chicken are also very good. Graham Beck Railroad went well with the steaks.

This is a destination restaurant a little way out if Mbabane. There is a lovely restaurant opening onto the gardens, which is a great place to sit and eat on a hot evening. There is very interesting architecture around -it is a bit if a fantasy park. The menue is extensive, well priced and if a high standard.
