Thank you Aimee and Ryan for a wonderful evening with new found friends. The Kranskop Viognier complemented the Yellowtail starter tremendously well. Rib-eye steak is hard to cook "medium" which is how I like it and Ryan clearly knows just how it should be done. As one well known chef described the dessert - the Caramel meringue was "decadent". Great service and beautiful Al fresco courtyard dining at it's best (indoor seating if you prefer). Need to check opening times out of season (on blackboard outside).

I was nervous about trying Karoux again, as it had been one of my favorite restaurants when owned by Kurt and Andre, but there was no reason - the food is superb, service fantastic, and the quirky decor still in place.
The Caesar salad starter was something I would come back for again and again, sirloin steak with "thrice" fried chips was amazing, and the desert equally memorable - definitely back on my favorites list.

We booked into Karoux for two evenings whilst staying at McGregor. Run by a lovely young couple Ryan and Aimee, offering a small but select wonderful menu of fresh cooked food and high quality wines in a small and cosy restaurant.

We would recommend the steak, the risotto, crime brûlée, infact everything.

It's not open every night out of season, so do book, it's worth the journey from Capetown even if your not staying in McGregor.

Www.karoux.co.za. They have a philosophy "It was a time when the family table has pace for one more - a stranger was merely a friend with a new story to tell. This is the philosophy behind Karoux - arrive as a stranger and leave as a friend, touched by true Karoo hospitality." I can certainly say that this was very much the case.

Really good food with a depth of flavours. The double baked soufflé was amazing. The service was excellent. We had such a lovely meal we repeated the treat a couple of nights later. Thanks.

we were blown away by the food and the service.It doesn't really look like fine dining and we were made very welcome by the owners wife even though we were dressed very casually. Then we saw the menu on the chalkboard and were amazed that one would find such unusual dishes in a tiny little town such as Macgregor. Our food was exceptional, as was the very friendly service, the owner is also the chef and came out to greet us as well. we disliked nothing and wish it was closer to where we lived! Also not expensive for what we ate at all.
