Not a big menu, but delicious and catering for different tastes. I can recommend the chicken wrap. Peaceful setting with a lovely view - lucern fields, big trees. Not always open, due to private occasions, so first make sure if you can visit.

We popped in for lunch the setting is really scenic overlooking the corn fields, the restaurant setting is modern yet country. There is an art gallery in the old stables. We all had lamb rack which was delicious. A definite must do whilst in the area.

Food is always good. Small menu that caters for everyone. Also visit the art gallery. It is well worth the drive from Bredasdorp to visit the restaurant.

Lunch at the Nacht Wacht was enjoyable and relaxing a few days after Xmas. The table garden-salad for 6 was good, but pricey at R240. The main courses were all fine, though the meat tended to be more well done than ordered. The wine list is adequate, but more local wines would have been pleasing, and our first choice ran... More

We ate here, but first a discovery trip to locate the place, it is along the regional road and nu number, so a GPS is useless. Once found by using Google Maps (its on Nacht Wacht Farm) a small discovery tour on the farm awaits and you are rewarded by the location there at the restaurant ! Superb view, total... More

The setting, overlooking the fields, is relaxing, the restaurant's decor is slightly quirky, & I must return for dinner to see what those OTT chandeliers look like when they're lit up. The food was wonderful: rich, creamy mussel soup followed by springbok carpaccio for me, & tasty, tender smoked pork neck with sweet mustard sauce for my darling. Presentation was... More

Driving from Bredasdorp to Arniston a few times, we always saw the sign for this restaurant, which is located on a farm between the two towns. When the famous Southern wind made a beach visit impossible, we decided to give it a shot. And what a most delightful surprise. The menu is small, the decor is stylish but not over... More

The service, cozy atmosphere and absolutely marvelous dishes some of the very best the Overberg has to offer! The food are tastefully served and really tickle all your taste buds, from the melt in your mouth steak to divine cheesecake.

We have just enjoyed an absolutely exquisite Sunday lunch. We travelled about 100km to have lunch at Nacht Wacht but it was worth every single kilometer. The food, the setting & host are without ANY doubt TOTALLY over the top. We will be back.

Thank Rascis
