We had a fantastic dinner at Pioneers, with a lovely atmosphere and great service. The waitress was very friendly, and even the manager / owner stopped by to chat. Definitely worth visiting!

Good curry tripe with brains wrapped in "blaarpens". Delicious. Lamb neck - to die for. Great service with friendly staff.

Great food and great service. Cold beer. Springbok burger is a must and kids enjoy the kiddies menu.

We are at Pioneers Restaurant in Graaff Reinet. The food was very good and the staff went out of their way to make our evening enjoyable.

The menu is a variation of what we would call "pub grub" in England. On a nice evening it wasn't appealing to sit inside (quite dark) so we went for the outside space: unfortunately a few smokers around but the smoke wasn't enough to suppress the mosquitoes - we were bitten alive. We shared a Greek salad - very average - then my wife ordered a beef fillet, I ordered kudu steak. Both supposed to be medium, both were clearly well done - and that's what was shown on the bill when it came. Also ordered sauces, but these didn't come until half way through the meal, after we chased them up. Clearly forgotten. Vegetables also slightly over-cooked. Quite a busy place, lots of younger people having a great time, but for us it was disappointing.
