I don't know when I was last so impressed with a food establishment. For my parents' 39th Wedding Anniversary, we went to have lunch at Carlita’s Restaurant. It is located at The Hills Game Reserve Estate Clubhouse in Pretoria East. 

I have heard about this place and had received several recommendations to go see it time and time again. To be honest, I don't really know what I was expecting, but I sure was very impressed. 

The place is located near a bed of water with reeds and a nearby dam. It is a stone throw away from the clubhouse' gym and pool. The views and open layout of the place are exceptional. 

Even before you start dining, you feel as though you are far away. It is beautiful and a must for all nature lovers. The play area is a dream come true for young guests. Parents have the comfort of remaining within eye contact of the children while they play. 

The food was magnificent. It had a pleasant simplistic layout and tasted great. The restaurant ambiance and freindliness of the staff mae it a personal experience. 

We ordered ribs, pizza and full chickens amongst others; and having the great loving company of family meant the freedom to taste and nibble from each others' plates. I could not get enough of the chicken and veggies as well as the ribs and chips. 

I loved how I could just kick off my shoes and walk outside to take my nephew to go play outside. The grass was greenest green. The weather just right. What a perfect day with loved ones at a fanstastic venue. 

 If ever you are looking for a place to wine and dine as a family, couple or alone; this is it. There was also a kiddie party and adult birthday party at the table next to us. I can fully understand why people come here to celebrate.

It is a pleasure to recommend Carlita’s Restaurant. I'd love to go back on another occasion and try out more food to review them (as well as to confirm if this is truly an unmatched experience on any given day).
