Tales from the kitchen

Our restaurant founded by well known Chef, Paul Eaton, boasts 180 degree views of the Jozini Dam. Set amongst majestic Marula Trees, the large deck area flows out onto a green oasis and is perfect for long leisurely lunches and whimsically romantic dinners under the stars.

Dining at Mpeti is a decadent food safari designed to entice and tantalize your taste buds. The cuisine is Pan African with a modern fusion twist, specializing in fresh sustainably sourced seafood and a large variety of red meat, poultry and venison dishes. We source fresh produce from the local lying areas and most of our meat is sourced from free range and organic suppliers in the Natal Midlands, guaranteeing the best quality with the most tender cuts.

Chef Paul has created the most scrumptious vegetarian & vegan dishes and will happily whip up something amazing for special dietary needs.

We want you to relax and indulge in a true fine dining experience, believing that your experience will match our commitment to delivering the best stay you have had in Zululand.

Come and enjoy one of our Gin-tales!
