Basil's Restaurant, the Marriot Ranch Hotel Polokwane

My wife and I decided to take a trip to the Limpopo province of South Africa for the weekend. We decided to sleep in the Marriot Ranch Hotel in the town of Polokwane in South-Africa. As we departed on our 250 km trip just after work on Friday afternoon, we arrived just in time for dinner. In the photo above you can see the two of us enjoying a glass of wine. (It seems that I am going soft, no beer drinking only wine!!)
We ordered a nice bottle of Swartland Merlot of 2016 vintage.
The avocado ritz pictured below was the starter of choice, it was delicious!!
For the main dish we ordered the Flambe Lamb Neck. The meat was flambeed right at our table. The waiter did the work himself!! The neck was de-boned and each of us got a half of the neck.
Below you can see the meat going up in flames - great!! This gives a complete new meaning to flame grilled!!
Below you can see the finished product, with some mash potatoes added.
We need to eat healthy, thus we added some good and wholesome veggies!! The food was fantastic, the neck was soft and tender and the rest of the food was delicious.
While we were on the the flambe, we decided the flambeed cherries and ice-cream would be great for desert!! Below is our waiter busy with our desert.
I just had to post the photo below as well, just look at the flames!!
Below you can see the final product - absolutely amazing!!
The photo below shows a bit more of the dining room area of the hotel, it seems as if the flambe was quite a hit on the evening!!
Below you can see a part of the lounge / bar area of the hotel.
The statue below looks a bit like the Johnny Walker man.
The photo below shows my wife walking in the reception area of the hotel, note the Lion in the back ground. They also have a game reserve on the premises, and they also have lions, this particular lion died of lymphatic cancer.
The pool area of the hotel is just beautiful!!
We enjoyed our stay at the Ranch Hotel a lot, the staff was amazing and very friendly. The food was great and the room was perfect, this was the start of a great relaxing weekend.

I hope you liked my posts as much as I enjoyed taking the photos!!

All photos were taken by my with my iPhone, at my parents home, in Pretoria, South-Africa.
