Situated on the ‘wedding mile’ in Muldersdrift, Carnivore is one of the few restaurants that service the neighbouring hotels such as Misty Hills. The 500-seater offers only a set menu, which eliminates the panic of having to settle on just one or two dishes. Instead, guests are welcomed with a refreshing dawa cocktail (made with vodka, sugar, honey and lemon) before getting to try everything on offer on the set menu. Once you’re ready to begin, waiters bring a soup of the day, a tray of salads, and sauces to complement the selection of game meats, chicken, pork and beef served hot off the grill.

Tender, juicy venison is served in a biryani, the surprisingly succulent white crocodile meat tastes like a combination of chicken and fish, and the pork ribs are deliciously crispy. Waiters jokingly refer to the yakitori-style chicken as Nando’s. While Carnivore is a meat-eaters’ paradise, vegetarian meals are available on request.

If you still have enough room following the eat-as-much-as-you-want buffet, desserts include malva pudding, chocolate mousse, cheesecake and ice cream.

Ask to visit the cellar or choose from a vast wine and beverages list.

Friendly service with many waiters servicing tables with food and drinks.

Festive and family-oriented.

    Celebrated my Husbands Birthday last night there, it absolutely amazing, true african experience the climax was when they served the food, how they served the food, everyone cant stop raving about it, we were a table of 12 and everyone was given exclusive attention. The highlight of course was when they sang him Happy Birthday, he felt like a king ??
    Dad's Birthday lunch had us heading off to Carnivore situated at Misty Hills Country Hotel in Muldersdrift. After a 45 minute drive from Centurion, we pulled up to this African inspired convention centre. The buffet comprised of various meats, but our favourite was the Eland and the Kudu meat balls. Service was good considering the dining area was fully booked. Only a few critiques we realized at the end of the meal we weren't served any veggies and Carnivore needs to invest in more aircons or fans, the dining room was almost unbearable considering the heat wave sweeping Gauteng at the moment. Other than that we had a great lunch at a secluded area out of the city. I can now say I ate a croc at Carnivore. Kea leboga
    Probably the worst lunch I've ever had to experience - Squeezed so many people into the venue that we could hardly move, food wasn't great, service was terrible (waiters were rude and just didn't bring drinks), the place was so hot it was suffocating & there are no aircons, ran out of toilet paper in the bathrooms & the bathrooms flooded. When complaining to the manager - didn't seem to care at all.
    I am tour operator and regularly use Carnivore restaurant to my clients from Bulgaria and all over the world. I don't have any complaining as always my table is booked in advance and set up. On arrival My groups are welcome and treat very well. The service is very good and I like the restaurant and can recommend to all my partners and friends. Th e food is very good - it is really value for money, The ambiance is very attractive and finally the service is also good. Here can be make some more to be excellent and complement the food.

    The service was deplorable, I booked for my 40th birthday, expecting a treat, but was horrible mistaken, so disorganised, my 10 year daughter had to wait for an hour before the chicken made a return and only after five requests, no heaters worked, moved tables 3 times, eventually to a table right outside the toilet. Food was not great, and the dessert was disgusting and for the 4 excruciating hours I was there I only saw my waiter twice, eventually I had to track him done to settle my bill. I will never step foot in there again, and urge others to do the same.
