What a great experience it was sitting in this quant little restaurant. We felt like having a cup of coffee and cake. We ended up having scones that were the best I have ever had. I t took a while but was fresh out of the oven. We also tried a slice of cake but unfortunately I can't remember what... More

Stumbled across this little cafe on the last day of our trip in South Africa. We were looking for somewhere to have a coffe that was a bit less crowded and touristy and spotted a couple of empty tables in a sunny corner just off the waterfront. We were greeted by a lovely lady called Tendai and we had a... More

We were recommended this small Restaurant by our host and were definitely amazed by its cuteness: great south african food, lovely hosts and a nice Seat in the backyard. We will definitely recommend it Further!

What a great place! The food was delicious, home cooked from scratch. Great atmosphere and really enjoyed chatting to the owner. He's only been open a few weeks... If you want a break from the chains and mass produced then pay him a visit. You get whatever he is cooking as the house dish if you are there for dinner... More

De Voorskooten is totally a new experience from the old. It has changed owners and is now De Voorskooten Cafe. The whole ambience is much more friendlier and more inviting. Barney is the new owner and is dedicated to make a success of his business. During the day, breakfasts, light meals, beverages and home made cakes is served. De Vorskooten... More

I had a delicious chicken curry, it was South African style with banana pieces - gorgeous! My girlfriend had the Springbok which was perfectly cooked and came with mash potato, a mouth watering gravy like sauce and even a little show.. the vegetables were pan fried in front of us outside in the courtyard in the sun. It added that... More

Reading the reviews below, I am starting to think the chef must have had a really bad day when we visited... The food we tasted was awful. My husband had a bone in his chicken, and my pasta was just so badly seasoned I could only figure how is it even possible to produce a dish like this. The owners... More

We walked by this place and decided to have dinner as it's a small and warm restaurant near by our apartment. The food was excellent and definitely recommended! We tried the Springbok and Lamb curry, and their Don Pedro dessert is a must! Together with the warmth of both hosts, this place was a very nice experience.

Thank Karel V
