We were at a wedding reception which offered their standard buffet. The venue, surrounded by large rocks makes you feel like you're in a cave. It is truly a unique experience. The buffet is so traditionally West Coast. An abundant choice of fresh, home cooked food that was delicious and served by a really friendly team.

We used this restaurant and really enjoyed the dinning experience.The food is excellent and the husband & wife team are good company. This is a great experience to meet the people of the area and to taste the food that they prepare.

We visited Bosduifklip expecting something totally different, however, we had a good afternoon at the restaurant. This is a VERY rustic venue of which every stone (except the really big one) was laid by Mr. Engelbrecht, the proprietor of the venue himself... No frills or bells and whistles. Mrs. Engelbrecht does the cooking, and I think this is the primary... More

The overall impression of this place is that it is a failing business - perhaps it is South Africa's premier rustic wedding location, but it's definitely not it's premier outdoor restaurant - for that, in my opinion, you should drive a bit further along the road to Muisbosskerm. For the cost, even with our beneficial exchange rate, it felt over... More

We went for a dinner and really enjoyed the dishes that were served such as the pickled fish, home-baked bread, seafood paella, snoek pate, lamb on a spit etc. Tip: bring your own wine and pay corkage which is a minimal fee.

A huge thank you to Aletta and Kobus Engelbrecht of Bosduifklip for providing us with the most amazing wedding venue.

We recently attended a wedding at Bosduifklip and it was a disaster from start to finish. I cant believe it is the same place as mentioned by all the other reviewers because our experience was TERRIBLE. The host, apart from constantly being in your face, was so incredibly rude to the guests and on one occasion actually asked us to... More

Bosduifklip is the first and only venue we ever viewed before we had set our date (18th April 2015) …The most magical and beautifully rustic place with open skies not even to mention the great atmosphere, wonderful hosts and awesome food. From the first time we set foot at Bosduifklip it just felt right – so homely and relaxed –... More
