Ryan and Aimee may have moved their Restaurant next door, but there food is still first class. The well balanced menu is full of surprises and will please everyone. Beautifully prepared and presented using fresh local ingredients. Not to be missed when in McGregor.

Food to die and dine for! Ambience was great. Freshest ingredients. Art on a plate. Makes you want to re-visit the menu from back to front. Had such fun sharing our wine with your guests!

Food was very innovative and good but a bit overrated considering the price we paid. Service was very slow as there was only one person serving all the tables and one had to wait a considerable time for wine, to pay the bill etc as only one person handling all the tables. They should employ at least one other person... More

Simple pleasant relaxed ambience, good wine list, really good starter of game fish tortellini, followed by pan fried Kingklip which was slightly over-cooked and quite bland, and then unfortunately followed by the worst Creme Brulee i have ever experienced - stodgy, porridgy custard - quite awful. Overall a pleasant lunch but failed to meet the hype created about this restaurant.

Nicholas, our B&B owner, suggested Karoux and we were able to walk there for dinner. The restaurant is small and the decor simple. The food is simply delicious. After having the soufflé, we know why it can't be taken off the menu. The kingclip was prepared to perfection - light and flakey. Our friends' meals were also skillfully prepared. We... More

You just don't expect such amazing food and friendly service in a small town in the middle of nowhere. The food never disappoints and the staff/owners are only too happy to accommodate. I don't know how they do it all, and with a smile. The wine list is awesome, showcasing some of the local wonders. As a vegetarian my choice... More

Half of me wants to keep this gem to myself, because the food is so good, and I want to go back next year. The attention to detail is spot on and my gluten free goodies were amazing. Wel lworth the drive.

Honestly don't think that writing about this amazing place can do it the justice it deserves - the best best meal I've had in months - the staff outstanding, best wine list and choices just too too hard - it's had to be 20 out of 10 - thanks so very much - l

Freshly cooked good food from a small menu. The service was friendly and helpful and it is just a small restaurant. When we went it was full with locals as well as tourists, always a good sign if the locals use it. A delightful evening.
