Consistency is a huge challenge for restaurants, but Magnolia delivers time after time! Tempura Prawns are the best in the Lowveld!!

Charming restaurant in a place one might not expect. Food was excellent (I had the beef carpaccio and springbok shank) and the decor is charming. The specialty cocktails were somewhat quirky (I've never had black pepper in a cocktail) but interesting. Most of all, the...More

I’m not sure if our friend booked us at the Casto bridge hollow boutique hotel because of the wonderful hotel or because of the fabulous restaurant Magnolia which is a sister property. We were delighted by both!

What a lovely evening we spent at Magnolia. First rate food and service. Would highly recommend. The mushroom, Camembert and thyme soup was delicious, as was the rib eye steak with maribone. Our waiter was really superb. A evening to remember!

I was once told by my friend about this restaurant and then made a point to check it out, their pizza is amazing I cannot compare to any place I felt like I'm eating a pizza from Italy.

MAGNOLIA RESTAURANT & CAFE A Breath of Fresh Air on the White River and South African Culinary Scene Situated opposite the Casterbridge Hollow Boutique Hotel, Magnolia Restaurant & Cafe is a breath of fresh air on the White River and South African culinary scene. Inspired by rural French charm, it offers a sophisticated yet relaxed taste of the best the region has to offer. Unique in the diversity its multi-dimensional interior provides, it is simultaneously a romantic, intimate experience with inspirational views over the surrounding landscape; a relaxed outdoor venue set in gorgeously manicured gardens, or an upmarket business venue – perfect for large parties or small, informal get-togethers, vibrant cocktail parties, family gatherings or special occasions. The split-level interior and upstairs veranda create an interior with indoor-outdoor flow, a welcome breeze on hot summer’s days and delightful visual interest. The main restaurant is situated upstairs with a mezzanine level, which, with fantastic natural light, makes it ideally suited to private functions. Magnolia’s indulgent menu, created by leading chefs, is inspired by the use of fresh local ingredients – so whatever is in season makes it onto the menu. Meals are accompanied by a superb selection of South African wines, and rounded off with the most decadent desserts. The unique decor is a treat in itself... rustic, yet elegant – with a European twist. The quirky unexpected accents (most of which were made locally) and attention to detail create a pleasing and layered scene to be peeled away and explored bit by bit.
