Service was excellent. Food great, when in Oudtshoorn I had to try Ostrich and it did not disappoint.

Really good ambience and a shirt walk from our guesthouse 'shades of africa'. The duck was delicious but I thought the desserts slightly disappointing. But overall good meal

We shared a lovely family dinner at this delightful restuarant! Great food - highly recommend the ostrich and kudu fillet, awesome and attentive staff and the best Dom Pedro on our trip to South Africa! Thank you for a great evening!

Food was excellent. Well priced. service excellent and did not wait long for food to arrive. We sat in the garden outside and it was very pleasant there although i think it needs an upgrade.

A lovely meal for that special occasion. The boys were well catered for (7 and 9 years old). The prices was reasonable and the service was very good. A very enjoyable evening.

We know the restaurant since several years and enjoy the dinner every time. It is not constantly excellent, but constantly very good and the service is good as well.

We arrived just after 7pm and our main courses didn't arrive until 9.30, and even then they were wrong, missing chips, vegetables. The meat and fish were tough and overlooked. We did complain and had a very poor response from the manager. He says they are short staffed. Avoid!

We were recommended Jemima's by our accommodation and we weren't disappointed. Our wonderfully flamboyant waiter was very knowledgable about the menu and wine. It's not the biggest menu - but the food is very well cooked and tasty. The tandem of local meats was a highlight with ostrich, beef and venison (kudu) among the choices. The wine list is large...

This place came very highly recommended so we were a bit disappointed. Service was good but food was average, overcooked and poorly seasoned.

This little gem is undoubtedly the best restaurant we have ever had the pleasure of visiting in as long as I can recall. Exceptional service of a caliber you rarely get these days. The food was outstanding, it was exquisitely presented and there was something for everyone even our very picky 9yr old daughter was thrilled with the food. Nothing... More
