The staff were also great and very... More

The range of pastries available was fantastic - all made on the premises, all generously sized and, from the three different ones we consumed, all good! Can't comment on the meals, but if the pastries are anything to go by, they will be beautifully... More

We came in order to take out some soup but ended up sitting as the stuff were so warm and welcoming. This place is so nice, our soup was tasty with freah bread and other dishes looks great! They also have some really good pastries and they make their own bread in place. This is a GREAT place for every... More

We were down in plett for a wedding much to my dismay after washing my hair we discovered the entire area in which we were staying had no power. Sao Goncalo's was on the way to the venue and kindly allowed me to dry my hair in one of their dining rooms. I couldn't have asked for a better view... More
