We stopped here for lunch. We had the "Fig &Pig" pizza which was delicious. It had ham that was smoked in-house and preserved figs that added just the right amount of sweetness to the smoked meat. My husband had a bowl of pasta. We had a nice bottle of red wine from a local vineyard. There is s nice play... More

I travelled to Piet Retief alone and was lucky enough to try this restaurant on my first night in the area. The decor is classy and the waiter and owner are really friendly and helpful. The food was really tasty, i had hake and veggies - the veggies were delicious, not the usual boring roast veg and the fish was... More

I ate at Mama Mia about a year ago and its good to see that nothing has changed. The service is great, the food tasty and the prices are most reasonable. I had the Lamb Shank with rice. The shank and rice were served in a potjie and the salads and veg on a separate plate, nice touch

Whe are regulars, we eat here whenever we are in town. However i think tonight was the last night. The main meal was great (as it normally is), however the whole experience fell flat when it came to dessert and coffee. Firstly they make the cuppacino with normal Nescafe instant coffee and have the cheek to charge R24 for it.... More

We arrived at the restaurant without a reservation - there was a warm welcome and a plan was made to accommodate us, even though they were very busy. Wide selection on the menu from which to choose - all our meals were excellent and a good wine list also. Would recommend and also would return.

The HUGE menu should have raised a red flag but I was so hungry. The ageing decor should have raised a red flag but I was so hungry. My Bolognaise was ok but the high sodium aftertaste revealed the tin origins of the sauce. Either that or the chef is not a chef. The Carbonara was simply awful. Powdery, greasy... More

My steak was overdone (served medium) and the service could have been ever so slightly better. Not a disaster but not overwhelming either. I arrived without a booking and they feed me regardless. I shouldn't ask for more but have come to expect it.
