Loved this place. Perfectly cooked thin crust pizza. Not too much cheese, more authentic Italian style. You can choose your own toppings or select from the menu. The butternut squash and beetroot & feta salad was beautiful. Staff were very helpful and friendly Loved it!!!!More

UNDER NEW MANAGEMENT: The Jam Tarts Barrydale has a whole new look. New thin crust pizzas in our wood fired oven. Mina's famous Malay lamb curry; Venison and chicken pies; famous baguettes; Bobotie. We are fully licensed and as a result make fabulously naughty milkshakes. We look forward to giving you a friendly Karoo welcome.
