Visited @ 13h00 and waited for 90 minutes for food.... rather book first seating and order quickly. Interior warm and homely creating a good atmosphere. Expected more traditional options. Slightly pricy. Overall food average.

Enjoyed lunch with a group of business friends. Had high expectations of the New Volkskombuis, in remembering the original Volkskombuis with it's excellent regional food. I ordered the oxtail, but was sadly disappointed. Although tender, the portion (served in a soup plate) was small, bland,...More

Well situated with ample parking. Food is fabulous - traditional meals such as Oxtail and Bobotie. Portions just the right size. Good friendly staff and service. Great for a rainy or sunny day.

I went there for lunch and definately enjoyd it a lot. The food (we had Kingklip) was good and the wine by the glass exelent. Service is swift and friendly. The best part I guess is the setting. We sat outside in the winter sun.

Had a caprese pizza for the table, R75( roughly USD5) , one of the best pizzas we have tasted. My Oxtail was very tasty, Pork Belly was delicious and the girls enjoyed their chicken Caesar salads. Creme Brûlée was fab, perhaps the sugar coating not...More

Having visited the Volkskombuis many times since the 1980's , we had expected a much better show. Often the traditional dishes like Meraai se Chicken Pie are simply not available , which is difficult to understand as this is on the menu. The 3 times...More

De Volkskombuis has been open for decades, and sadly had not been updated much in all that time, neither did it make use of its fantastic location on the riverbank. A recent serious makeover has changed all of that. The restaurant now focuses on its...More

Hello! Sorry, I only saw this now. I think main courses were about R180 each? If I recall correctly, two-course lunch for two with wine, sparkling water and coffee was something like R600.

De Volkskombuis restaurant offers great food and ambiance with great contemporary Cape interior, that shows off the beauty of the building's heritage, and some magnificent antiques, in a contemporary way. Some of the dishes on our menu such as the Boland Bobotie and Gesmoorde beesstert showcases the best of the traditional Cape cuisine. The service is very attentive and yet not intrusive, and the food mirrors the interiors, a contemporary update of the classic Cape food that the restaurant has been known for over the years. We welcome you to the newly renovated De Volkskombuis restaurant under new ownership and management.
