The Sun City Hotel Casino has some upmarket restaurants including The Raj, however it also provides a cheaper cafe style dining area and The Raj also operates in this area. There are a variety of cafes and nice tables and chairs. We ordered from The Raj and found our meals to be very good.
After dining their one evening we left and 5 minutes later I noticed my wallet was missing. Quickly returned to the table where we ate but no wallet. I then asked at the pizza cafe and the manager handed it to me saying one of his staff picked it up off the floor. I left a nice tip for the honest employee.
For those don`t know , Nando`s is famous for their Peri Peri Chicken. You get Lemon and Herb , Mild , Hot and Extra Hot Chicken , so if you into something flaming or just something mild then Nando`s is the place to go.
Favorite Dish: Nando`s Chicken Burger Combo.
Everyday full breakfast buffet and dinner buffet set amidst lush garden greenery. The chefs excel at creating imaginative theme style buffets at the Palm Terrace and there is live band entertainment Tuesday - Sunday. Closed from Mid-May to Mid-August for dinner, due to cold weather conditions.
Hey don`t be suprised if you spot some monkey`s and some peacocks. Don`t worry they won`t come anywhere near the restaurant.
Favorite Dish: Well its a buffet
This was a very pleasant afternoon in the very plush Palace dining room which is a lavishly furnished and decorated room with towering ceilings and long windows stretching from ceiling to floor. The table settings were appropriate for the room and complimented the High Tea theme.
Staff were very attentive and there were several musicians playing background music. As you decended the huge "Gone With The Wind" staircase into the dining room you walked past a table laden with exotic sweets and other mouth watering delights. Hours 3 to 5:30 pm.
We visited this bar on 2 occasions for a short break whilst walking around the resort. Both times we had coffee and cake but you can also order beer, wine or spirits from the bar and smething more substantial to satisfy your hunger.
Situated on the terrace of the Cascades Hotel there are many tables with beautiful views over the pool and gardens. It is an ideal place to relax and discuss the day's activities.
Favorite Dish: Coffee & Cake.
On the lake edge overlooking the jetty, boats and other activity on the lake the Treasure Island cafe is an ideal place to enjoy a coffee or light lunch. We were there late May and the cloudless blue sky made the lake and surroundings shine.
On our departure day we decided to have lunch at Treasure Island whilst we waited for pick up and transfer to Johanesburg airport. We sat at a table with an excellent view over the lake and ordered fish with Greek salad and a fish burger. The fish was South African perch and most enjoyable. I can recommend this cafe/ restaurant for those who enjoy a nice casual lunch with view.
This is an Italian style cafe with upmarket furnishings and bar. Very popular for lunch and we joined the crowd for an enjoyable light lunch and coffee. Open in the evenings with a menu which specialises in Italian food, however we did not dine there in the evening.
Located at the rear of the Entertainment Centre close to the main entrance to the Cascades Hotel.
This is a popular restaurant specialising in various meat dishes. We dined here on a Monday evening and were lucky to get a table. There was an extensive menu on offer and I had Steak with mushrooms and a bowl of steamed vegetables, whilst my wife had Moroccan Lamb. Both meals were enjoyable and we finished with coffee.
There was a large bar offering a variety of beers and wine.
Recommend you reserve a table.

Santorini is an upscale (but not stuffy) Greek seafood restaurant in the Cascades Hotel in Sun City. The restaurant is busy asnd noisy, but the waitstaff was friendly and the food was excellent. We enjoyed our fish dinners, and the dessert (Baclava) was excellent as well.
Santorini is open for bith lunch and dinner. It is kid friendly and hasa children's menu.
This is a Mediterranean Styled Restaurant that servers Greek cuisine. Its very nice as you surround by water and you have the traditional Greek music playing. You have these waterfalls which is coming from the roof down falling in the sparkling blue pool of the Cascade Hotel.

Well, i have it as an Italian, but in all honesty it's WAY more than that :P Apart from traditional Italian fare, it also serves a wonderful steak, and amazing seafood. Situated within a pool area, the surroundings are beautiful, the ambience is very laid-back and friendly, and the service is top-notch. As could be expected though, the prices are also amazingly high :P We paid about R800 (incl. Tip) for 4 people.
Favorite Dish: I ate a beautiful fillet steak, cooked Med-rare (to perfection, i might add). Asia had a kingklip (her first taste of one of South Africa's best fish). Amazing.
The restaurant doesnt look like anything special from the outside but it is a real deal! The price of the breakfast was included in our accommodation price.
We paid a tip to the staff at the end of our stay, asking that they share it out between them, as each morning we were served by a different person, and they were all so friendly and helpful, and the food was so delicious!
The staff are wonderful with children, are cheerful and pleasant, making your eggs (in front of you) exactly as you would like them.
Favorite Dish: They have tea, coffee, orange juice, apple juice and trpical (mixed fruit) juice available, for as many refills as you wish for!
The breakfast is laid out buffet-style and has a variety of foods and drinks, catering for all types of pallets.
There is the English cooked breakfast, with egg, bacon, beans, sausage, and a hash brown. They cook your egg whichever way you'd like it :) You can make your own toast with white, brown or wholewheat bread.
They have croissants and scones, with all kinds of jams and marmalades too.
There are also a variety of fruits for a fruit salad, available, from peaches to pear halves, from mango pieces to guava halves, to mixed fruit. Then there is the choice of vanilla or strawberry yoghurt... for your fruit, or for your corn flakes/all bran flakes/muesli.
It really sets you up for the day, and we werent hungry for lunch till quite late.
VERY good value for money... and what lovely staff!
We needed a bite to eat - some breakfast! - as we had travelled for just under an hour, and a good way still to go.
We stopped off here to get some groceries and supplies for our self-catering bungalow at Bakgathla Camp, and then decided to eat here, on the rooftop terrace.
The sun was shining, you could see round for miles, we were hungry and happy :)
Service was punctual and friendly, we didnt wait long for our drinks and milkshakes - yum - and then the food arrived.
Favorite Dish: We all had slightly different breakfasts, mine was the farmers breakfast.
It had tomato, mushrooms, toast, egg and some pumpkin too... different to the usual breakfast... and tasty!!!
The guys had the full-on breakfast, with everything anf more!
Clara had a breakfast that came with a lovely mix of fresh fruit... it looked great! Even though I enjoyed mine, if I come here again, I will choose this!
Please note how my chocolate milkshake is being eyed out in the one photo!!! :))
This restaurant is under a permanent canopy, on the bank of the lake where the jetskiing and paragliding and skiing takes place.
It has beautiful views across the lake and the surrounding area, is relaxed and informal.
What I really loved, and I miss this about South Africa... is how one waitress came up to our little niece and, smiling broadly, asked her if she'd like to help her feed the fish?
What two year old would say no to this!!!???
So the waitress lifted her up and spent about 10 minuts with her, chatting to her and feeding the fish in the lake. Cayla loved it!
Yes, the restaurant wasnt really busy at this time, so she had time to spare, but this was a lovely spontaneous gesture that I thought was rather nice!
Favorite Dish: We had desserts and drinks here, we never ate as we werent hungry, but what we did have was well presented, and staff were friendly and cheerful and fast.
The thing is, in a 5 star resort like this, the staff have to be top-notch in their service as they are dealing with tourists/locals etc. that are spending a certain amount of money here at the resort.
