About The Leopard Lodge

Certainly one of the most atmospheric South African restaurants you’re likely to come across, The Leopard Lodge is a steakhouse as well known around suburban Perth for its charming African decor as it is for its authentic menu. Sit amongst unusual African artefacts and decide how you’d like your expertly aged steak to be customised. There are seven cuts to choose from, but we love the 1kg ‘elephant’ rump with Kenyan ugali, beer battered chips and ‘monkey gland’ sauce. The exotic Cape Malay bobotie is also a winner! A hit with all the family, The Leopard Lodge is a quirky little spot amongst the trees of Karoborup Road, Carabooda. An evening spent here might just feel like you’re off on safari.

It was our 37th anniversary so needed to be special, and so it was. The food tasted wonderful. Service was quick. I love how it's a family working together. It's been a few year since we last went. Won't leave it so long next time. But the owners are still enthusiastic about their restaurant and took time to talk with us explaining the meal. Love the decor. Gosh it was packed for a Wednesday night but everything flowed beautifully. Thx guys from Sue and Steve Terrey

Sat and waited 1 half hours for food and we only had our order taken when my husband asked.We had a groupon which said a triibal platter for 2 or 2 platters for 4 recieved on large platter which the food was tasty but only bite and bit for each item on the platter .Desert quarter piece of pudding with icecream. i informed the owner that he need to explain the process as he gave us a menu and told only to order our free drink. no mention to keep them and wait for a order to how we likes our steaks cooked we gave up our menus as they we taking up space on the table which was the only indication to staff that we need to order. it was resolved in the end but not very happy with the experience.

Amazing. The service was super friendly and easy going. The menu was expansive and caters for all - even if a little on the pricey side (But they make you aware of that so certainly no surprise). The seating is slightly cramped in, but still enough space. The toilets are big, clean and beautiful. The restaurant decor is lovely. The meals are HUGE - even the kids meals!! We will be back... Just beautiful.

The food was nice but didn't wow us. The service was a bit lacking. The restaurant was busy but it is only a small place and there seemed to be enough staff they just weren't attentive and seemed to lack direction in which tables they were actually servicing, when they did come however, they were all polite. The venue has a unique feel to it which added to the experience.

Excellent food Extremely long waiting time for dinner (approx 1.5 hours). This is the second time the wait has been long. Last time they ran out of gas! Owner is great but the service needs some tweaking. Even some rolls and butter on the table would have made up a little for the long wait.

The service was a little slower than expected but once our order was taken the meals arrived in a reasonable time. The meals were well presented and well prepared and tasty. The prices were possibly a little high but the meals were of generous size and quality was good. I will be going back.

This was our first visit to Leopard lodge Restaurant and we were not disappointed - the food was exceptional and although it is very far - we live in Mandurah we will definitely be back. Can highly recommend this restaurant.
