The dinner on the first night of our review was served at the Legends restaurant that pays tribute to a visionary entrepreneur, the many famous stars, personalities, guests and icons that have graced Sun City over the past 40 years.
Perhaps the most famous of them all was Frank Sinatra, ‘ol Blue Eyes, who wowed the crowds in 1981, whose charisma and charm were equally matched by his distinctive smouldering voice.
Joe Cocker with his gravelly sound, Elton John (before he had hair) played his piano, Leo Sayer with his big hair, Olivia Newton John in 1982, newly famous after Grease, Eric Clapton – they all came and made us hungry for more.
Sting and Tina Turner, Dolly Parton, David Essex, Rod Stewart, Cher, Tom Jones, George Benson, Cliff Richard and Shirley Bassey are also part of the list. The Legends is a place to remember the razzle dazzle of yesteryear, to take a trip down memory lane.
It offers guests trendy grill house style food complemented by a diverse drinks menu to suite an array of tastes. We had rib eye and oxtail cooked in a rich rosemary red wine sauce, served with buttered mash and root vegetables.
Our breakfast was served at Sun Terrace, an airy eatery and ideal unwinding spot for a hearty breakfast or lunch.
