We came here for a quick lunch that ended up testing patience. From the outside everything looks cool and inviting, vintage motorcycles sprawled out on display with collectable cars adorning the shelves, so yeah, you think this is cool and quirky. Waiter was not knowledgeable about the menu and had to run back and forth to write down the order.... More

Well what can one say about the service... Terrible springs to mind, I tried to buy a interesting bottle of wine, but was told they do not have a price on it and therefore could not sell it in case they made a loss, I then offered to buy both of the bottles which apparently have not sold for 2...

What a lovely and interesting farm villaget. Something of interest for the whole family all wrapped up in one. Food portions are not for the faint hearted, left there definitely well fed. Our waitress was great and was made to feel welcome immediately. Thank you Smitswinkel, see you again soon.

Visited the Smitswinkel yesterday on the 19th of March for a late lunch with my family, even though the place was busy and waiters were not available a manager came to our assistance. She seated us and took our orders and even during the meal checked that we're satisfied with the meal. I was really impressed as it's not every... More

Grimy, smelly, awful. Staff try hard and are friendly, but this was really a substandard breakfast in a rundown, neglected establishment. Avoid if you can.

What a great and interesting place. Children and group friendly. Great outdoor seating. Great indoor seating! Everywhere you look there is some interesting thing to see. Great food, but need better service.

Wow and wow again! The ribs are the best I have ever had! Super tasty and oh so tender. The floor manager Elvina keeps a hand on the goings on and knows every tables patrons. Esaac is also on hand and Meryl recommends very well and is ready with your drinks without any fuss. You really need to experience this... More

Lovely to look at and a great shop, nice and clean but the food was terrible and the bread was stale, nothing seemed fresh at all! Service was slow.

My nephew was here from Brisbane in Australia last week and we took a drive to Oudtshoorn. The outside appearance of Smitswinkel had changed dramatically since I was last ther so we decided to give it a go. The venue with it's interesting decor and crafts available was outstanding as was the fare, I can gladly recommend anyone to give... More
