An amazing country setting with a good menu and a wonderful story about the owner. Food was good as well as the service. The Green Fig Spring Rolls as well as the Roosterkoek with Cheese and Biltong were very tasty. Lots of play area for children to play. Definitely a spot to visit over and again!

The location is stunning and the restaurant is very nicely set out with some unique things that one can't find elsewhere. The portions are a bit small. We had the chips which were supposed to feed two. Really didn't.... We recommend the guava smoothie and blackcurrant crusher. We'll be back

Dear Alan C, Thank you for your Trip Advisor review and your lovely comments about our restaurant and shop. We pride ourselves on above average portions and value for money.

This spot has recently been completely rebuilt. It offers a nice outside play area for the kids and has plentiful seating both indoor and outdoor. The food is good with a smallish but very nice selection of meals. The Patensie slap chips are the best in the West. The restaurant is licensed and the little shop is a pleasant place... More

Thank you for your review on Trip Advisor. We appreciate your kind comments regarding our restaurant. Our menu has a variety of traditional dishes (bobotie, curry, venison, roosterkoek etc.) and non-traditional dishes (calamari, steaks, trammazzinis, carpaccio, pizza, etc.), but your comment is noted. We are continuously working on our service level. Hope to have you back again soon. Regards Heidi More

Stopped at Padlangs during a tour of the region and the Gamtoos River. We ordered four mains and a round of drinks with the bill being just less than R500. The drinks and food came in a timely manner and the waitress was very attentive. The owner was also very active in the restaurant interacting with all customers which was... More

On our way back from Baviaanskloof, we came across this gem seemingly in the middle of nowhere! It was a delight! We had a wonderful breakfast which was great value for money. The coffee was great. Just the thing before setting off on our long journey home. (The little shop is also full of interesting items and home made goodies)

We hit this place after a long and strenuous trip out of the Baviaanskloof, and what a treat. The food you get us value for money, and the manager even came and chatted to us at the tables as if we were old friends. If you ever pass through Gamtoos, give it a looky.

We arrive there on Monday coming from the Baviaanskloof and found this jewel, it was however only for a short moment. Outside is a big sign not to seat yourself.

Dear CoIosseum, I am sorry to hear about your unfortunate experience. The sign your are referring to does ask patrons to report at the till point. The till manager will then allocate a table and provide you with menu's. We do this because our restaurant seats 160 patrons in a diverse number of settings (on the stoep, under the trees,... More

Padlangs is located 7.5km from Patensie on the R331, en route to the Baviaanskloof Wilderness Area, and located in the tranquil Gamtoos Valley. In September 2016 we moved to our brand new premises (500m from our old location). We now have a water splash pad, giant garden chess set, play area for children with a bike track, outside shower for cyclists, and a stunning view of the Gamtoos Valley.
