Ordered the ostrich and venison, rare, and got it exactly as ordered, with a nice Madagascar pepper sauce. But the maitre d' seemed to think Castle Beer was a local beer, was clueless about craft beers from Cape Town. When I ordered a capirinha instead,...More

It was our dinner. Our table was located indoors, but all windows and doors were opened and it was strong draft. Sitting without sweaters or jackets was impossible (I was in t-shirt). Complimentary bread was tasteless and stale. Our order was: "Jemima's beef fillet" (medium...More

Had dinner - the service was friendly and swift, whilst the food was magnificent. I won't go anywhere else in Oudtshoorn and recommend Jemima's highly. A wide variety of good wines to choose from as well, also the best coffee in the Southern Cape!

I understand your frustration at the total lack of service. I gave my review of this establishment during a period when the town was busy with a festival, so obviously the consistency of the management is to blame for your... More
