The Best Ways to Spend a Night in Nelspruit

Staying at our accommodation in Nelspruit is not without its many perks. Along with offering truly luxurious and comfortable lodgings, we also happen to be situated in an area where our guests can enjoy all kinds of exciting nightlife, especially when visiting any one of the many restaurants.

At Pensao, we have the option of dining in (if you’ve made prior arrangements), or you can prepare your own meals when staying in one of our self-catering units. If neither of these options sound appealing, why not spend the evening outdoors at one of the best places to eat in Nelspruit?

It’s not just Nelspruit that has all kinds of great places to eat. The nearby town of White River also happens to have some of the most electric restaurants and seeing as the town is only a 20 minute drive away, it’s a short distance to spend the evening in great company. There is plenty of choices when it comes to places to eat, all you have to do is carry on reading to find out where the best places are.

  • Rocomama’s

A nationwide franchise, although there is not a franchise in every town, Rocomama’s is a popular fast food eatery that you will find at iLanga Mall. They have a diverse menu that allows you to pick and choose your meals by deciding what toppings you’d prefer to dine on. The restaurant has a jumping vibe, with amazing music and the layout of the dining area makes your time here truly memorable and relaxing. And if you don’t feel like eating at the mall, you could always order a takeaway and come back to our lodge to enjoy your feast.

  • Picasso’s

A Mexican style restaurant with a delicious menu and all kinds of fabulously colourful drinks, a night under the outdoor lights at Picasso’s can do wonders for the soul. Guests have a wide array of meals to choose from and with the great company that tends to frequent the establishment, you will never be bored. Picasso’s is situated just outside of White River and it is the ideal place to soak up that distinctly laidback Lowveld style.

  • The Jock

Without a doubt every local’s favourite place to grab an after work drink and a wholesome bite to eat, The Jock offers quintessential Lowveld dining. Just about the whole restaurant is outdoors, with enough shelter to keep the rain and sun away, and weeknights are very much chilled. Weekends can get a little wild, with the dance floor opened up, but that doesn’t stop the good food from coming out of the kitchens. You can also order a takeaway if you’d prefer to not dine at the restaurant.
