This was our second visit to the wonderful Mrs Simpson's & the welcome we received made us feel like long lost friends. The decor is whimsical, & I'm sure we'd have to visit every day for a year before we can take it all the Wallis-related items. The staff are charming & attentive, but not obtrusive, & everyone around us... More

After two months holidaying in SA, this is by far the best "overall restaurant experience" we have had - delicious food, great atmosphere and friendly host. A real little gem!

Was highly rated and so thought we would pass by, the exterior didn't look that great but the quirky cat crossing sign gave us something to look forward to As soon as we entered we were greeted with amazing service and even more eccentric decor. You can tell the place has history and we loved every minute of our visit.... More

We had dinner here on a Saturday, which was busy. The wine list was a bit limited but the wines they had on hand were great. Food was good with the lamb shank being the recommended dish.

This was only our 2nd visit but we felt like treasured friends of the establishment when we left. Excellent service from Al. Deliciously tasty food of good portions. Booking is essential.

There is a reason to book your dining experience well in advance when visiting dullstroom. It's a very popular restaurant that serves great food in a setting that puts you in the shoes (pun intended) of the late mrs simpson, a lady that loved shoes and fashion. I couldn't figure it out when we walked in, the lighting like an... More

The way i was treated made me feel very bad and the food in was served was full of butter and very oily. No effort was made to serve a well balanced meal.

Oh dearie me, what a disaster! On booking your table, was it perhaps announced that one of your group is a vegan?No. Not many restaurants have vegan dishes on hand, just in case a guest requests one. You were offered a choice, which you said you do not feel like. The chef then put together a dish, including making special... More

Our absolute favourite restaurant in Dullstroom. Our annual holiday in August whilst the kids where still at school. My daughter treated me to a weekend in this beautiful tranquil little town, Nov 2016. I ordered a chicken curry with basmati rice - very delicious and my daughter ordered the Pork Belly which was cooked to perfection with the best crackling... More

We stopped at Dullstroom and per Trip Advisor went to see what Mrs Simpson was like. The friendly atmosphere and the interesting conversation added to a menu that had some really interesting dishes for us. The restauarant set up, the people and the menu are all intersting and stimulating. If in Dullstroom this is a must.

One of my biggest gripes have been restaurants who serve such large portions that you feel bloated and uncomfortable when you leave....and that is only after 2 courses! Clever Mrs Simpson. As much care goes into desserts so why not have all 3 courses which s what dining out is all about!! The starters are small enough to be enjoyable... More
