Dolores is an excellent cook and prepared us a family meal. Lots of different plates, one even better than the other. We couldn't have had a better meal! Thank you very much Dolores, not only for the food but for your wishdom as well.

Eventually found this almost hidden restaurant near Mvubu Falls Lodge. Home made authentic and delicious Swazi food meticulously prepared by the owner. Although small, the restaurant is homely and comfortable and Delores, the owner, ensures that everyone is satisfied with their meals.

Pap never tasted better!! We are looking for real African food and luckily found this restaurant. The restaurant terrace has an amazing view and the hostess (a 70ish lad,we guess) is one of the sweetest restaurant owners we have ever met.

My wife, daughter, sister and I visited eDladleni and left with happy bellies and satisfied souls! It was definitely the culinary highlight of our three day trip to Swaziland.
