We had Breakfast this morning at the Oak Leaf restaurant. The restaurant is just off main road Somerset West. The gardens are stunning. The food is well priced.

Indoor or outdoor seating under huge trees in a nice garden setting. The menu is not very extensive, but there's something for everyone. The warm calamari salad was very nice. Some interesting refreshing home-made coolers on the menu too. Perfect for a warm day. The service was really, really slow, but it was ok on the day because we had... More

Creamy Carbonara ( Alfredo) combination of bacon mushrooms and onion . Great taste, doesn't need the onion rings in the sauce. Would prefer this dish as an Alfredo with the softness... More

Never disappointed when we go there for a meal or just a cup of coffee. It's in the city but one feels as if you are in the country. One Valentine's dinner was spectacular with fairy lights in the back garden which we had all to ourselves. Meals were very well presented and the waitress was well trained. I have... More

I was invited there by some friends and I have never heard of this restaurant that is tucked away on the main road. I was so glad to have found this place because the food was outstanding made better by the exceptional weather. It is very cosy but you don't feel like you are sitting on top of the other... More
