Hat & Creek has two restaurants. One in Palaborwa & one in Hoedspruit. This is not a franchise chain of restaurants which is in my opinion gives them a higher level of quality! Both give a excellent atmosphere and every meal I have ordered has been excellent. A firm favorite of mine. I would suggest any overseas visitors to try... More

Great service, good food and most of all a lovely ambiance. Our foreign guests were thoroughly impressed and we had to go back a second time. They ordered the same meal again! The squid salad is really a meal and I love the Mozart cake (not available on that night) We will return :)

Nice ambience and decor. We had burgers which were good but a little short on the fried onion rings (see pic) and fillers. Can't comment on the service because we were the only ones there - mid afternoon. Will definitely try again.

They have a great chef here! Recommend the fillet steak and lamb chops. Presentation of deserts with basket on top was delicious and inviting to look at. Wine choice good and not too expensive. Wish I lived near you I would go every night! Couldn't recommend any higher

Hat and Creek is situated on the main road of the precious little town of Hoedspruit. Welcomed by glistening fairy lights, warm fires and good wine. Hat and Creek is good value for money and kid friendly.

The Hat & Creek certainly has a dauntingly large menu, but it is the steaks & fillets that they offer which are the stand-out meals of choice. They are perfectly cooked, perfectly presented and a favourite every time I visit.

Fab food, nice setting, great service. Well priced wine list. Highly recommend the kudu fillet and the butterfly prawns on the fillet steak.
