Hi Razz2924 Thank you for your review. I am mortified to hear that you did not have an excellent pizza experience. I am absolutely confident about the quality of our pizzas and I can only think that we dropped the ball on this occasion.

In exploring Barrydale we came across The Jam Tart. They have friendly service as well good pizza's. Woodfired right under your nose. Slightly out from the busyness of the other more popular places along the main road but worth it. Try out their smoothies and don't forget to pour yourself a jar of honey

We parked outside Jam Tarts and was welcomed by a jolly lady. It was a cool evening and decided to sit in doors. The tables outside were already taken up by what appeared to be happy customers. We ordered a pie and bobotie, glass of wine and small bottle of water, all for R225. The pie was to die for,... More

Hi woo a Thank you for your good review. I am so pleased you had a good experience at The Jam Tarts. Many people stop specifically for Mina's pies - one could say she has a "following". Next time you are in this neck of the woods, please do stop in for a pizza or two. We sometimes have seasonal... More

The Jam Tarts is worth a visit. Under new ownership, it offers an exciting menu, value for money and they make the best pizza's in the Cape. Best of all is that the venue is pet friendly and they sell local art. The decor is amazing. All round good vibes. Perfect way to spend a Sunday.

Hi chanelle l Thank you for your excellent review! As you gathered we welcome humans and animals alike. Being a long distance (road) traveler myself, I noticed there was a lack of pet friendly venues on South African roads so when I took over The Jam Tarts it was the first policy I set in stone :-) I am beginning...

On our way to Cape Town we stopped at Barrydale for lunch at The Jam Tarts. A simple but very good restaurant directly on the R62. We had a light lunch and we were served by the lovely waitress with the name of Mishé.

My family and I visited this restaurant just before their closing time (we did not know what time they closed) They were gracious enough to serve us even though it was their closing time. The staff was very friendly.

There are extremely few restaurants open on a Monday evening in Barrydale. I'm not sure if this is the case during the rest of the week, We were lucky to happen upon The Jam Tarts in our endeavor to find an open restaurant.

Hi Vinnie275 Thank you for your excellent review. I am so pleased that you had such a good experience at The Jam Tarts. Barrydale is primarily a lunch time trade so as a result the restaurants take turns to be open in the evenings. As you have gathered, Monday is our night. Luckily for us, you were in town :-)...

UNDER NEW MANAGEMENT: The Jam Tarts Barrydale has a whole new look. New thin crust pizzas in our wood fired oven. Mina's famous Malay lamb curry; Venison and chicken pies; famous baguettes; Bobotie. We are fully licensed and as a result make fabulously naughty milkshakes. We look forward to giving you a friendly Karoo welcome.
