Bryan and Steven are amazing. Food is awesome. Gay friendly venue so it attracts very interesting people who allow for the amazing vibe at that place. Wallace the cat is very friendly. For a really special feel, ask to sit upstairs.

Personal experience, good food and interesting decor, and good history, I had a liver starter which was lovely, beautiful sauce, for mains I had the trout which was also done to perfection, good flavor, had only a few bones. You have to book in advance otherwise you won't get place.

Thank you for a fantastic evening. Great food, good wine. The lamb shank is a winner and the peanutbutter ice cream a must have. Good wine, in fact the wine bottles are on display for you to take a better look and make the right decision. Make sure you make a reservation otherwise you won't get a seat. Best restaurant...

I had been told Mrs Simpsons is the best in Dullstroom, but it was already fully booked for the weekend when I called early in the week. Luckily we got a call on Saturday after a cancellation. My boyfriend and I felt completely at home - cosy and warm and very well looked after! All the food we tried was... More

What a lovely lunch at Mrs Simpsons. The food was top notch, I loved the stuffed trout and my friends enjoyed the lamb shank. One of us in the group had a flat tire and arrived late, and they stayed open later for us to order dessert (try the peanut butter ice cream!) Such lovely food and lovely management.

Visited Mrs Simpson with a group of 12 friends on Thursday 9th March 2017. Great food, good menu to choose from. Attentive staff. Limited wine list on that night. Very interesting decor. An all-round good experience and will recommend a visit.

Dullstroom is full of tourist traps on the main road, but just one block away lies one of its hidden gems: Mrs Simpsons. From its quirky decor to its inventive menu, it is a delight. The cuisine is generally excellent, but not, of course, always perfect. (On my last visit my stuffed trout was disappointingly mushy and bland, but the... More

Mrs Simpsons may not look like much from the outside. But don't be fooled. Step inside and you will know you have come to something special. Be sure to book in advance though. Once you have tasted the food you will know why. I ordered rib eye steak with some apprehension. What a pleasant surprise. It was top drawer and... More

We ate here twice during our stay in Dullstroom and truly enjoyed it. The eclectic decor is so original. Wallis the cat came to our table to visit several times which we loved. The lamb shank was a delicious dish and falling-off-the-bone tender. The stuffed trout was very fresh. Calamari starter was very nice. My husband loved the snail starter... More

Hello Dixie, Many thanks for your review of Mrs Simpsons. We hope that Wallis, the pampered cat, does not disturb our guests , but she always seems to be the main attraction. I apologise for the fillet being a bit more done , normally we tend to underdo it. Hope you enjoyed the rest of your holiday, and maybe a... More

One of the consistently wonderful Dullstroom experiences. The decor is unique and the Wallace Simpson theme is carried through, even into the street. The staff are more friendly than family and couldn't be more welcoming if they tried. The two levels of the restaurant were packed, but the service was not affected by that in any way. The food is...
