What a discovery in a town like Clanwilliam! Friendly, caring and warmhearted waitress Natasha makes you feel more than welcome - we barley seldom encountered better service than hers... And this means quite a lot in a country like South Africa...

The food is no haute cuisine, just down-to-ground dishes, absolutely delicate and tasty... We cannot understand ANY of the critics mentioned before. To us it seems like these people went to another restaurant.

Michael, Neil and Natasha: Go on like this! You're doing a great job and we will definitely come back!

Michaels on Park in Clanwilliam is based on serving the best fare of local products, based on the best traditions of cooking in an area that produces some of the best food and wine in the world. With very nice setting looking straight on the Cederberg Mountains, it is just splendid. The chef himself is attentive and good company in addition to cooking fabulous food. If you are in the area, don’t hesitate, book!

Michael says he runs this restaurant as a hobby. Well, he cooks up the most amazing food, from delicious, tender steak (I had a fillet , perfectly grilled really rare as I asked for it), to the best South African dishes and lovely puds. All capably served by Natasha, and I think she has a hand in the local delicacies too, She is a gem, dry sense of humour and great fun. We were only in Clan William for two nights but had to return to Michael's on the second night; it was so good. We sat outside on the terrace and went inside for coffee and to enjoy the memorabilia from this old masonic lodge and listen to Michael's story. The painting are larger than life and the photos spellbinding. If there is any downside, I would have liked some green vegetables, but I asked for salad instead which was freshly prepared and delicious. If you are in Clan William, don't miss it.

Behind the appearence of fine dining there is an average restaurant, with a main dining room in dim light, barely enough to see your food, as if they were unsure to show their produce. There is better light in the room by the entry door, but this keeps open all time. Thus, you have to chose between not seeing your food or eating with your coats on (in winter, obviously). The day we had dinner here there was only one person to attend all tables and she struggled to give a good service. We understand she did her best, but we had almost finished digestion when coffees finally arrived.
