The service, cozy atmosphere and absolutely marvelous dishes some of the very best the Overberg has to offer! The food are tastefully served and really tickle all your taste buds, from the melt in your mouth steak to divine cheesecake.

We have just enjoyed an absolutely exquisite Sunday lunch. We travelled about 100km to have lunch at Nacht Wacht but it was worth every single kilometer. The food, the setting & host are without ANY doubt TOTALLY over the top. We will be back.

A night out with friends was well spent at Nacht Wacht Restaurant. Do brouse at the art gallery with paintings by Melanie. The menu was well balanced. The food was great. And of course, Melanie's cheesecake did not disappoint! I would have loved to see her around, though!

The menu is limited: five main courses, plus two specials. But the food is of the highest standard, beautifully presented, in a setting that is simply captivating. The service too was good. Be warned though: evening meals are by reservation only—but well worth making the effort to book.

This really is the best place to eat in the area. Such a pretty farm setting. It's still, intimate and relaxing. My prawns were fresh and perfect. The rack of lamb, generous and full of flavor. Steamed veg from the garden were a joy. Will be back.

The turn-off is easy to find: 7 km south of Bredasdorp on the Arniston road. Threading your way through the farm estate needs clever observation of the small signs. First impressions good: black tables, white linen napkins, upholstered leather chairs, chandeliers under a high wooden roof. But the restaurant offers more than it delivers. From the chalkboard menu, I selected... More
