Hamiltonís Restaurant is idyllically situated on Riverside Farm in the heart of the agricultural hub of Mpumalanga, South Africa. This family eatery is, in fact, on the Malalane Gate Road, outside Kruger National Park, which continues to be one of the premier tourist attractions in the country, thanks to its abundance of exquisite plant and animal life. Mpumalanga itself is an exquisite province that has a massive agricultural, natural, historical and cultural significance; making it a fantastic representation of South Africa and all that it has to offer.
Hamiltonís was once a trading store, and is characterise by its modern South African style that is a little eccentric and eclectic, with a warm ambience to boot. It looks and feels like an authentic African experience, with a comfortable air that is perfect for families with children, groups of friends, or travellers passing through on their way to or from Kruger.
The menuís focus is on local, seasonal ingredients to ensure that the dishes are fresh and tasty, while never negotiating on an innovative approach. Awesome vegetable dishes are complemented by seafood, poultry, red meat and even venison options to be as diverse as the diners themselves. Homemade pastas are also extremely popular amongst young and old alike, as are the gourmet burgers. South Africa is known the world over for its excellent wines. A comprehensive combination of these wines is available on the inclusive wine list of Hamiltonís, and there is certainly something to suit all preferences and meal options.
There is a beautiful indoor dining area, as well as an outdoor one, from where the children can be seen as they play on the jungle gym, run around the giant baobab tree or keep themselves busy on the gorgeous lawns of the farm.
