Makiti Restaurant / Waffle House

Come visit our Restaurant / Waffle House for a family outing, let the kids play and be entertained. We have great specials throughout the week. Our Delicious waffles are for the foodies. Please view our menus below or call us today to make a reservation.


For those who are not familiar with the secluded 50 hectare estate situated in the Cradle of Humankind, Makiti Wedding and Function Venue was established in 1996. It has since grown to be one of the West Rand's most popular and sought-after wedding venues thanks to its beautifully landscaped gardens, river meanders under big old trees and majestic cliffs as a backdrop.
Thankfully, since the opening of Makiti Restaurant and Waffle House in November last year we don't have to wait to be invited to a wedding or the next corporate function to share in the unique experience, exquisite food and tranquil surroundings that have put Makiti on the map!

The tasteful, beautifully decorated thatched roof restaurant is situated right at the main entrance of the venue.
With its modern-chic interior, interesting chandeliers, trending two-tone furniture and rustic and classy touch will have you fall in love before you find your seat!
The covered outdoor deck overlooks the kiddies' play area and surroundings while friendly and competent staff cater to your every need.

All the dishes on the menu are served in large portions, prepared in perfect gourmet style with the best-quality ingredients – yes, we also thought 'gourmet' and 'big portion' in the same sentence sounded pretty good! The à la carte menu has an extensive variety to choose from.
If Italian gnocchi with red wine, lamb shank and tomato ragout served with Grana Padano Parmesan cheese or their famous Makiti burger, steaks or schnitzel tickle your fancy, you're sure to leave more than satisfied. And then of course there are the waffles that can be described only as absolutely mouth-watering!
