We only had breakfast here as it was included in our room rate at the Tsitsikamma Village Inn hotel. The breakfast was delicious and they had a large variety of breads, pastries, cold cuts and hot food. Hot breakfast was the usual full english, but also included South African options such as boerewors as well. Staff were friendly and helpful.

Everybody told us about the lekker roosterkoeke, so we went to experienced it ourselves. Warm welcome. The waiters are excellent that includes the service and we enjoyed Mollie the african grey. Food was good. Definitely the place not to pass while you are in the area.

Buildings look old and traditional (except for the dates they were built). The interior has never been updated but we liked that a lot. Good but not spectacular food, fast service and friendly personel. If you want pasta this would be the place to go.

We had a soup starter and a main course. The food was fresh and tasted like it was home made. Tasty and delicious. The soup warmed us up as it was a bit chilly in the evening.

We had booked this restaurant by email 3 weeks in advance as it had sentimental value.

Ate here for dinner. Service was slow. Only one vegetarian option on the menu, and it was virtually devoid of vegetables.

Description
Proudly situated in the Tsitsikamma Village, and onsite restaurant of the Tsitsikamma Village Inn itself, De Oude Martha restaurant promises garden views and hearty, South African meals during your stay. Surrounded by a wide veranda, looking out onto the Village square, the décor is the perfect blend of the village's old world charm with a modern day twist. We use fresh, often organic and local ingredients with fresh herbs from our garden mixed with a detail of love to create traditional meals. Cosy in winter and cool in summer, De Oude Martha has good food and friendly staff all year around. The doors always open, stop by and experience the heart of this historic restaurant.
