10 out of 10. The food amazing, the settings wonderful, everything was great. The only criticism was that it was a little slow, but well worth it.
Place is beautiful and I really got the feeling I was in Swaziland. We had been looking for swazi food for a week or so and couldnt find it. I mean real swazi home cooked food. Luckily a local guy told us about Edladleni. Rocking
hard to get there so just follow the directions on the website
Favorite Dish: Peanut chicken
The Simunye Country Club is a private country club that primarily caters to the managers and owners of Swaziland's largest sugar plantation and mill, which is located nearby. Although it is a private club, it is open to visitors. We happened to see its sign as we drove through the town. We had been driving and touring all day, were very hungry, and were therefore very happy to discover Simunye. The lunch was served buffet style, with a good selection of salad, carved meats, and other dishes. The meats ranged from tame (beef) to game (kudu).
The staff and members were very friendly to us, and definitely made us feel welcome even though we were tourists just passing through. For children, there is a pool and playground next to the restaurant. Our daughter Anna had fun after lunch playing with the local kids.
In addition to the restaurant, Simunye Country Club also has rooms in which you can stay overnight. We did not have time to check them out, so we don't know how nice they are.
A beautiful setting at the Candle Factory.
An area for children to play - with trampoline, sand-pit and a small jungle gym.
Great background music from the late 60's and 70's.
Full Liquor licence.
Specialty Coffee Machine
Favorite Dish: I thoroughly enjoyed a Chocolate Chilli Fudge Cake.
Beautifully presented with a sprig of Rosemary, and a dollop of icecream.
The chilli flavour just pops open in your mouth. It was stronger than I expected but delicious! I would have that again. I asked for the recipe - no chance - a big secret.
Pictures to follow.

Charming furnishings, ols prints and in chilly weather, the roaring log fires.
Apart from extensive hot and cold buffet and selection of fresh home baked bread, there is also a braai (bbq), stir-fry and delicious desserts.
Favorite Dish: My favourite dishes from the buffet were - starters
Fresh cold salmon
Ox tail (delicious if you like it)
A taste of the Thai chicken dish.
Our guests had the sir-fry - Calamari, prawns, vegetable julienne and pineapple.
There are so many dishes to choose from, I could not try them allas the oxtail is rather rich.
Hot Cape Brandy Pudding
Many many more....
When we arrived at the campfire near the restaurant of the Main Camp in the reserve the ordered boar at the spit was allready done. So we had rice, milo, sauce, different salads and (for the people who liked) the meat for dinner.
We enjoyed our meal and the tranquil ambiance outside the restaurant, in the middle of the nature.
