In Sabie everything can be a walk away …

Sabie is a beautiful small town in Mpumalanga, South Africa with a lot of history and nice places to eat and drink, I believe there is a restaurant for every one’s taste.

At Sabie Self Catering Apartments, we offer fully equipped Self Catering accommodation with the added benefit of being within walking distance of some great restaurants.

Let’s start with the closest restaurant from us.

The Woodsman Restaurant and Pub

With only 210m from Sabie Self Catering Apartments’ premises, or just up the road, you can enjoy a hearty meal, with a little bit of Greek and South African flare in all their dishes. From shawarmas with the best tzatziki and coleslaw to rump steaks served with rice and warm vegs or just some chips with a sauce of you choose.

Sitting on their terrace, you can enjoy a beautiful view of the Sabie valley and mountains.  At The Woodsman, you can taste our local Sabie Valley Coffee. If you enjoy it, you can take some home too. It is a well-situated place for all kind occasions from formal dinners to Susan’s first birthday party with the kids play area down-stairs.

“Loggers” like the local people of Sabie call it. Has a more modern lumberjack feel, with a lot of wood décor.

You may order well prepared breakfast sandwiches and lamb curry. If hungry, come here for tasty chocolate waffles, pancakes, and brownies. The Restaurant has recently got new owners and with the new management the whole atmosphere changed. It is now a cozy, yet somewhat formal restaurant. With a lot of tasty pancakes, waffles in savoury or sweet to enjoy.

This restaurant is conveniently located on Main Road and easy to find. Petenas Pancakes is recommended for their cheerful staff. The good service is something these restaurateurs care about.

Merry Pebbles Restaurant

1.2km from Sabie Self Catering Apartments’ premises

This restaurant may please you with good pizza, trout, steaks, and onion rings. Merry Pebbles is famous for its great service and friendly staff, that is always ready to help you. This Restaurant is set just 100m from the Sabie River. Which makes it a unique stop for everyone that loves nature.

Yes, it is not with-in “easy” walking distance from Sabie Self Catering Apartments’ premises, but it is, a restaurant you want to visit, whiles in Sabie. The Restaurant has a formal South African atmosphere, but it is very relaxing and peaceful, a place for young and old.
