My wife and I had a lovely meal here on Sat last week - our first ever visit. We ended up having a long chat with Simon about the restaurant and life in Montague. He may not be the most immediately gregarious of people but he is friendly enough and I don't see what all the fuss is about him... More

Have been here on a previous visit to Montagu and then went two nights running as it was so good. This visit we went three nights running as we knew we wouldn't be disappointed- we certainly weren't. There were three of us and every dish we had was excellent. The brandy and ice cream signature dish was wonderful, I normally... More

Our lodge suggested making a booking - and they were right. The place (Saturday night) was full. We enjoyed the sense of humour of the staff / owners. Likewise, our meals were excellent as was the Pinotage. It was strongly suggested we have the ice cream dessert and and we obliged. I think the accompanying brandy was overkill, but nevertheless...

It was a great experience to have dinner at Simon and Wendy's restaurant. The food and wine were just perfect! Fresh, delicious and something different from other restaurants we visited in South Africa. Besides, Simon is a funny and friendly waiter and we appreciated Wendy coming into the restaurant to check whether the guests were satisfied with her food.

Simon could not have been more rude to us if he tried! He didn't greet us when we arrived, and took us to the table but never said a word. He lit our candle and didn't say a word. He heard me say something about the Thunderchild wine, and only then did he deign to speak to us and rudely... More

This restaurant was recommended to us by the owner of the B&B nearby. Must say after reading some of the write ups I was hesitant due to the negative comments made about the host/front desk. But all said how good the food was. So we went to enjoy the food. We were extremely well received and found the host, Simon,... More

What a find! Simply Delicious is just wonderful. We were recommended to this restaurant by the owners of the guesthouse where we were staying and were not disappointed. The food was absolutely delicious, beautifully cooked with great attention to detail. We were there for dinner on a wet July evening, hence the only diners but the owner, who manages front... More

Famous for its food and also the somewhat grumpy owner & front of house Simon. We had been 'warned' about Simon and how he can appear to be grumpy and rude and that really he has a 'different' sense of humour to most people! He frowned on my choice of wine and said that it wasn't the right wine for... More

Preferable to have basmati with Kingklip Thermidor and not yellow rice (too sweet). Having already read the TripAdvisor reviews we knew what to expect with the front-of-house owner and we were not disappointed! If guests want ice, give it to them, not frozen grapes which do not chill in the same way! The icecream dessert was delicious, but guests should... More
