There is no specific cuisine attached to it as there are different flavours to each dish which just work. The approach is good fresh food with a difference executed to perfection. The Rhodes Grill Restaurant interior is very colonial in its layout with a mixture of the top Wine Farms in South Africa exhibited. The Rhodes Grill is a definite culinary treat for anyone staying at the Kimberley Club Boutique Hotel and public alike.
