Unusually, this restaurant doesn't have a standard menu but a limited choice of freshly prepared food. Something for everyone but not your usual fare. Perfectly cooked and beautifully presented. Delicious! We didn't have room for dessert so we'll have to go back

I have had many enjoyable meals at Haricots. I am not a fan of the new harvest table but i'm sure others will disagree. All in all you get what you pay for. Definitely has become expensive.

We decided to eat from the buffet lunch - and there is a special name for it - which escapes me at this time. There was chicken, quiche, salads, vegetables - and then they weight your plate and that's how you pay. First of all,...More

Got this from TripAdvisor, a real nice place for a quiet lunch. The food was very good and so was the service.

Called in for a drink only. Reasonable choice of gins - which was what we fancied. Now non-smoking throughout. Menu looked interesting and service was fine. There's an interesting craft-type shop adjoining which is also well worth a visit.

The restaurant offers nice dishes for lunch. You pick from a variety of dishes and the serving staff weigh your plate and you pay what you chose. All very fresh and tasty. Excellent place.

The quality of this food, the subtlety and expense of the input on the plate from the kitchen, is hand over fist better than anywhere else on the restaurant strip in Grahamstown. Lots of places present themselves as trendy, high quality boutique but after all...More

This restaurant is not the same as it has been in the past. Very limited menu. Food is tasty but nothing special. Could get this kind of food anywhere. Completely overpriced for what you get. Left us feeling ripped off.

My apologies we had an unfortunate turn of events which left us vulnerable but I am pleased to say we are back - closing for a week for refurbishment and a fresh approach to business.....
