What a bad experience. The tables were a mess. The staff take so long to take a order. The food was very very bad it tasted like it was made the day before and just heated up.

A good decision to have lunch here on a lovely Autumn day in Oudtshoorn while visiting the KKNK. The staff were friendly and the food we ordered was lovely. I had the grilled chicken breasts and salad. It was well prepared with a tasty sauce. My partner had the special of the day which was the Cape Malay curry and... More

We were seated timeously and given menus. Husband ordered the grilled chicken burger with garlic sauce. Very bland and the sauce was over the top stodgy. Limited wine menu. Looking around I did not see any plate of food that looked appetizing. Savior of the day was the sushi. Fresh and tasty.

Great spot to have breakfast. Enjoyed the Karoo chicken livers as breakfast while watching the people in the streets.

Never a good start when there's nobody to seat you and then you have to wait for a server. The menu is extensive. Was looking for a light lunch so went with the beef burger. This came served with fries and a sauce. The burger was fair. The fries didn't taste too bad but clearly were not fresh. The sauce... More

We were advised to go to this place by our lodge. They actually organized a shuttle for us. This was a terrible trap. As we saw the menu with so much choice, we knew quality would not be excellent, but from all cheap restaurants visited in SA this was by far the worst. It took one hour to get the... More

Nice location on the Main Street. Lovely outside seating area for those hot summer evenings. Nice menu variety including traditional South African favorites....like babotie. Unfortunately the service level from the waitron was not that great....slow & inattentive

The food, when it eventually arrived, was very tasty. We only ordered mains because we wanted to be out early. We were a table of 12 and there were many other large tables. This could've accounted for the extremely slow service. Worth going to for the ostrich fillet and babotie.
