La Gruyers Restaurant is open daily for Breakfast and Dinner, where a buffet and an A la Carte menu are available. Additionally for your dining pleasure, our In-room Dining Menu is available.

Please advise us well in advance if you wish us to reserve a braai, as this is on a first come, first served basis. However, you are more than welcome to bring along your own gas braai.
