A very quaint restaurant with a nick nacks shop attached. Breakfast was nice and very good value for money service did let it down a bit however. If you are in the area though definitely stop in for a look around.

If you love Traditional South Africa food, a visit to this beautiful restaurant is a must when visiting Mossel Bay. Service is excellent and very friendly. Best atmosphere in winter with a little fireplace. We visit most weekends.

Good food and drinks. Service is slow. Beautiful seating in and outdoor. If not in a hurry, worth a visit. There is also gifts to purchase.
