We have been visiting the Eastham area for many years and kept driving past Karoo. This year we finally ate there. Unique offerings especially for Cape Cod.

This restaurant is excellent if you are gluten free. The GF menu items are marked and there are so many options! Vegan and vegetarian are marked as well.

I had a curry and it was excellent. The monkey ribs were great too - not really made from monkeys!

We went a few years ago and decided to go back this year. WOW!!! There were three of us, we decided to sit on the deck. As it got chillier we were offered blankets which was nice. Also there are two heaters on the patio. For appetizers we shared the combo plate. EXCELLENT. I had monkey ribs which were so tender the meat came right off the bone. Dinners-I had Cape Malay Stew with chicken. It was so good I could not stop eating it. The others got salmon cakes and Peri Peri chicken. All of us finished everything. This is a hidden gem that you must try. Our waiter was one of the best we evern had-he was helpful and very nice

Karoo is our very favorite restaurant to visit while on vacation at the Cape. The food is always amazing! No matter what we have ordered, it's all so good - and we have tried almost everything. The atmosphere and decor is very well done. This year our server was sweet, helpful with suggestions, very knowledgeable, and super attentive (I think her name is Rachel). We look forward to our next trip...for the beach and for Karoo!

A friend brought us to Karoo because she was friends with Chef Sanette. We had a wonderful meal. I have driven by hundreds of times and never stopped I am glad our friend brought us here. Our waitress was helpful and fully knowledgeable about everything on the menu. It is South African influenced. Everything is described on the menu. Each app was scrumptious. We each chose a different entree and we passed them around to decide which we loved best. My fav was the beef bobotie ! Yummmmm. The cocktail menu and dessert menu were creative and oh so good! Do yourself a favor if you want to experience a wonderful evening of food from half way around the world Stop! You won't be disappointed ! All five of us thoroughly enjoyed it and we aren't an easy group to please!
