We had dinner at Mario's which is under new management since our previous visit to Kimberley. The food was good, the service good but I was a little disappointed that the menu has changed so much. Overall not a bad place to have a meal.

Drove up and down Du Toitspan road looking for it, but we couldn't find it. The TA map shows it near the private hospital, but they had never heard of it.

Good food and service. If you like Italian, go here! The steaks are good too. Definitely a cut above the chains that are its competition. Really close to the Holiday Inn too.

Owner managed making every patron feels at home from you walk into the restaurant. This restaurant can compete with any restaurant in the bigger cities. The food is tasty and with an innovative twist.

The restaurant has pleasing decor. Nothing overdone. It is easy on the eye and hints of yesteryear in a quiet kind of way. Service is brisk yet unobtrusive. The waitress was pleasant. The food was a mixed bag. The chicken campagnola was hearty without being...More
