About Us


A sensational Grande Buffet and Restaurant – Rockafellas – Opened it's doors in 2009 at the Golden Horse Casino. The exciting concept of going back in time offers discerning Pietermaritzburg diners a mixture of great 30’s and 40’s era mood and memorabilia presented in an atmosphere of relaxed swanky elegance. The theme creates a unique, yet comfortable, jazzy, “speak-easy” feel.

On offer is an exciting variety of scrumptious, mouth-watering dining experiences for most tastes and cultures. The open plan buffet is designed to be interactive with our diners and our team of 10 chefs’ creativity will be an essential part of the 110 plus dishes on offer.

These include 2 different spit roasts, bakes, casseroles, curries, chefs’ specialties, chicken grills, fish, pizza, pasta and stir fry (choose your own ingredients), both hot and cold starters and a dazzling display of desserts, not to mention a variety of homemade breads from our own bakery.

This 500 seater glamorous upmarket restaurant has unsurpassed sweeping views of the Scottsville Race Course and the city and has an atmosphere to soothe the soul.

This is an unmatched venue and food offering for family reunions, corporate functions and gathering of friends, especially those with large numbers, where personalized and superior service is the order of the day.
