With the holidays in full swing, and with holidaymakers soon making their way to our Nelspruit accommodation, knowing where to go to enjoy a delicious Christmas lunch needs to be a part of the holiday planning. When on holiday, and especially when staying in self-catered accommodation, doing all of the lunch preparations yourself is probably not the sort of thing that you want to have to do. Not having all of your usual creature comforts and being in an unfamiliar place is not going to make it easy to make lunch, and besides, who wants to have to go through all that effort when trying to get away from it all for a while?
Nelspruit is home to some of the most incredible, locally-owned restaurants and cafes and this festive season, diners can look forward to an unforgettable culinary experience that will leave their taste buds satisfied and their eyes heavy. The sorts of food on offer range from the classic buffet to the sit down, 3 course meal, and each is going to be simply delicious.
Whatever you are in the mood for is guaranteed to be on the menu of one of these establishments.
