              River Bend Lodge Restaurants

              The exquisite cuisine at RiverBend is the perfect fusion of traditional European food and Pan-African fare. Matched with an award-winning wine list, a meal at RiverBend is a gastronomic experience. Executive chef Adriaan van Niekerk believes that dining at Addo game lodge should be an experience, not simply fulfilling a desire to eat. "My guests have the option of choosing from a café-style A'la Carte menu for a leisurely and relaxed lunch, to a 5-course dinner experience that would please the most sensitive of connoisseurs." Meals are not restricted to the dining-room and guests are encouraged to make use of one of the verandas or to arrange a packed picnic to be enjoyed on a game drive around Addo Game Lodge. Candle-lit dinners in the privacy of your suite are arranged for a truly romantic treat.
