We had a nice meal here and even if the service was a little slow, the pina coladas are magnificent and I was quite happy to wait. My t-bone steak was pretty average if I'm honest but my bobotie starter was amazing and fantasically tasty and the best we had on our trip. Good value for money.

We went to Jemima's on the recommendation of our host, but left very disappointed. It was a nice restaurant with plenty staff and an interesting menu. The problem was that we go to a restaurant mainly for the food. Perhaps we were unlucky as there was a large group in the night we visited who were served before us, but... More

Recommended by the owners of Alioe guest house, and its well worth a visit. It's a little dearer than some restaurants but it's good. We had to sit inside as outside tables were all reserved. The food was was excellent, well served and well presented. Waitress attentive and explained specials available. Good selection of food. Well worth giving it a... More

Jemima is just outside the bustle of the centre of Oudtshoorn. It has a large covered terrace in the front, where it is lovely to see the world pass by. There is also a garden with a covered terrace and the inside dining room is full of colonial atmosphere. They do lunch and dinner, but I am not sure if... More

Stunning service and amazing food! We were beautifully attended too without waiters hovering or being too much. Would definitely visit again.

Hi demand at this popular and well regarded restaurant so we booked in advance. All good but the waitress only told us at the point of taking our order that they had just run out of ostrich steak. Given the location ostrich steak will be one of their key, signature dishes. As we both were planning to have ostrich this... More

the ostrich burger was enormous and delicious and the carmel and banana desert was spectacular. The prices were very reasonable.
