In places like Oudtshoorn I need indigenous food, colloquial conversation, SA wine and the raw spirit of the Karoo. This is why I seldom stop elsewhere. Thank you Debbie&Pierre&staff

Had lunch on a Sunday while on a road trip with my daughter. I had the Moroccan Chicken Couscous Salad which was beautifully presented and delicious. My daughter had bangers and mash - possibly the best bangers and mash ever!

It was our dinner. Our table was located indoors, but all windows and doors were opened and it was strong draft. Sitting without sweaters or jackets was impossible (I was in t-shirt). Complimentary bread was tasteless and stale. Our order was: "Jemima's beef fillet" (medium...More

Had really good food there. The salad was very delicious and the lamb too. The ostrich and need were good in the trilogy but the kudu was a bit overdone even with medium rare. I had African caviar as starter and indeed was very tasty...More
