Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Great friendly staff who attended to us quickly and competently. We eat here several times as a family group of six. The steaks were fantastic as were the ribs snails deserts and selection of drinks. Coming from the UK where it would be impossible to...afford to eat this quality of food - it was and always has been over the years our restaurant of choice when staying in HazyviewMore

Apart from a long delay for our starters to arrive the rest of the visit was very good. The food was plentiful and very tasty. The remainder of the service was also prompt. I would definitely recommend a visit if you are in the area.

The waiter was friendly and kind. That’s about where the positive experience ended. It holds out to be a steakhouse but alas it could not grill a sirloin steak to save its life. It took almost an hour from order to be served a sirloin...steak that looked more boiled than grilled. Either the grill wasn’t hot enough or the steak is too wet. Probably both. The manager spent most of the evening socializing at the table next to us and was quite annoyed that his evening was interrupted. He grumpily intervened to deliver, some 15 minutes later, the same steak , past well done and inedible. When a grill house can’t grill and a manager has no pride … best left alone.More

Unfortunately we came late not knowing that they close at 21h00 but they were friendly and recommended a platter for us cos we came to celebrate my birthday Wow it was very nice to be there and I believe Pioneer's grill is our spot when...we visit Hayzeview. We visited Water Berry Hill before covid-19 and came to eat at Pioneer's grill and the food was nice and the service as well that's why we came and have my birthday dinner at the restaurant 💯💯More

Crap service and terrible food that’s why we went back again. Seriously the manager and his staff couldn’t do enough for you from providing information on the area to charging our phones and vape. Food is really excellent and served in good time despite the...electricity cuts. We would have eaten here all week had we the chance. Good security in the car park so no worries.More

It’s summer and the living is easy. Our table on the deck was perfect on a warm evening. While we tried to answer all the questions posed on the interesting menu the chef prepared two perfect steaks. Mine a black pepper fillet and creamy black...pepper sauce. B’s a rump. Thick, flavorsome and perfectly grilled. Dessert, my kryptonite, a Pannacotta was perfect. Creamy, smooth with a delicious granadilla coulis. We’ve been travelling for four months and this was our best “steak house” meal. Well done chef.More

The service was not bad - but the food was super average and over priced for what we expected from the well designed and described menu. The famous Amarula crème brûlée is pre made and been frozen for a good period and not defrosted properly...before it was served to us. Will not be recommending this establishment for a memorable experience in Hazyview.More

We were staying at the owners hotel called Hotel Numbi and they recommended we go there to try their well known aged steaks and they were just incredible for both me and my wife, who isn’t a great steak lover. We were also honoured as...the South African International Rugby Union team the Springboks all arrived in for dinner the same evening we were there so really says a lot for its reputation definitely.More

Overall while some of the food was quite good. The ambiance and service was below average. We had the chicken wings as a starter and then a variety of mains including chicken schnitzel, pork chop, and steaks.

Had dinner at Pioneer's, close to our hotel. Food was good but certainly expected better. The place could do with an aesthetic update as well. The biltong was the best and will definitely go back just for this!More
