This restaurant is so good, quirky, off road, fabulous views, good local food. I had the vegetarian bake. Very tasty and great cake and coffee to finish. Only house wine but at 25 rand per glass, what more could you want!

This restaurant is well signposted, it's off the road, but it's only 2 minutes from the exit. The road up to it is unpaved, and the bridge across the river doesn't look too sturdy. The restaurant itself is outdoor only. In fact it's quite primitive...More

A really great place for lunch. Great river side location, with simple and delicious local food. At reasonable cost and in a beautiful scenery, we highly recommend

Not necessarily easy to find but mostly catering for tourists. Food was delicious but meat not of the highest quality. However, the experience of lunching in the bush with everything being braaied on wood fire is just unique!

The word is out on the town and this little "Boskombuis" is creating wonders and just doing something completely different. Welcomed at the humble boma entrance you are escorted into an unforgettable traditional South African dining experience combined with the most splendid views and lazy, no-rush ambiance. Tucked right up against a gigantic round boulder, is a log fire where most of the food is prepared. To the front, pulling the children with an unseen magnetism, is the Treur river, with its crystal clear water, gently flowing a mere stone's throw away from the dining area. The menu itself is short and to the point, with open flame grilled steaks taking the centre stage. Apparently local "potjie" specialities are prepared over weekends. You need to plan a little in advance, the weather can change easily in this part of the world...do take some warm clothes or a blanket. Potluck Boskombuis has no credit card facilities or mobile phone coverage, take enough cash to cater for a blissful outdoor experience that will leave everlasting memories and make one want to visit again and again....
