The food was really good! We had an extraordinary dish: crocodile meat. If you are in Oudtshoorn or vicinity make sure that you stop by at this place. Yes, it doesn't look like much, the interior is a bit old school and average and the service could be a bit faster. But it was worth the wait. I had ostrich... More

Unfortunately the place was empty with no atmosphere. The tea and muffins and scones were very nice.

We stopped for a quick lunch after a long journey, too early to check in Hotel, so thought we would have something to eat here. Lovely air conditioned restaurant, no one in only us, which tells a story. The Lasagne was disgusting along with the garlic bread, no tomatoes or betchamel sauce in the Lasagne just lumpy meat and pasta... More

Their seafood pizza should make the headlines everywhere. We were the only people in there when we went but the place is clean and the food is delicious. I would definitely visit again.

What ever you do, do not eat at this place. I had a so called pasta, but it looked like porridge and tasted like wallpaper glue.

Rather basic restaurant with no atmosphere the night we were there. Food was disappointing. Vegetables over cooked and tasteless.

A noisy restaurant directly on mainstreet. The food is average and offers something for everyone. Family orientated and more staff (mostly students) than necessary. Certainly better ones in the area, but if in hurry it is sufficient
