Waited an hour for our food. The Risotto was not prepared properly. Then a simple dish fish and chips the waitor forgot to add to our slip and this took another 15 minutes to prepare. The fish received after my little girl waited so long was raw. Chef came and said he can prepare anything and there is nothing wrong... More

Hi Danie - are you sure it was De Oude Welgemoed you meant to review as the restaurant has been closed for major renovations since January this year. More

I booked the venue for a cyclists get together function. It was a cold winters night and load shedding took place from about 8pm. The restaurant personnel did such an excellent job with candles and additional lighting for the footpaths, that the people did not even notice when the power was cut. The pizza oven kept making pizzas and the... More

We have been going to this restaurant every year (for many years) on my dad's birthday. Yesterday was his ninetieth, and the family of 14 strong had for lunch in the "Boardroom" venue. It was a massive disappointment. The starters were really only so-so and took quite a while to serve, but the big problem was waiting for 1 hour... More

The bistro makes pizza's with reasonable toppings - but the cheese is just too chewy. The atmosphere is wonderful and service is good. I would go again and try the pasta at the bistro - I have not yet visited the restaurant. The location is gorgeous and secluded.

Having visited this beautiful venue a year ago, we thought it wise to revisit the 'known' in entertaining a guest. Th Restaurant and the Bistro are adjacent to each other and this comment relates to the restaurant side of the establishment. Very romantic Cape Dutch atmosphere and setting. The menu is equally relevant and fitting to the setting supporting the... More

De Oude Welgemoed is situated in the Tygerberg area, building dating back to the 1600's. Bistro serve very nice pizzas and have the finest wines. The stoep seeting is overlooking the Hottentots Holland Mountains and the Golf Course. The staff is very friendly and the service is great. We attend a private party and all the food was excellent.

The wife and myself went there in September, restaurant 200m up the road was fully booked, we were one of 4 tables in this restaurant. Menu very limited, the starterwe ordered (deep fried camembert) was absolutely disgusting and covered with what seemed like golden syrup, the meat was sub standard, and the one waiter was running like a mad man...

From the start I was treated with the utmost courtesy by Cindi, the Functions Manager and all other staff concerned with the organisation of my function..including the very obliging chef! The conference venue was beautifully set up with a lovely fire warming a cold,... More

What an amazing experience we had at this Restaurant/Bistro!!! We were welcomed by friendly staff and was directed to the Restaurant where a huge fire was going which contributed to the cosy atmosphere. Wide variety of options to choose from.
