This unlikely titled restaurant has to be one of South Africa's finest. Situated bizarrely next to a Caltex petrol station it is an absolute gastronomic gem that must not be missed!

Highly recommended by our B & B, we were collected by shuttle bus, (an extra R30 return), and found ourselves in a medium sized intimate informal restaurant where romantic couples and boisterous parties could feel equally at home. The menu and wine list are extensive and well chosen. The front of house staff intelligent, friendly and efficient. The food however is of the highest possible quality. We have now eaten there two consecutive nights and have been blown away with the quality of the cuisine. The Fish Platter in particular is to die for but whether meat or venison is your preference as opposed to fish, you will not be disappointed . Even the coffee is outstanding. This just has to be one of South Africa's very finest restaurants.
The cost of our meal for two with wine, coffee, three courses each and handsome tip was R700.
If you are within a 100 km. just make the detour and give yourself a brilliant gastronomic treat. You will not regret it - guaranteed!

The meal at The Girls was fantastic. The service was wonderful and our waitress was interesting in us, helpful with our choice of meal and overall very friendly.

I had the Meat Trio which was a choice of various meats that were available in the kitchen, lots of interesting choices and all were cooked perfectly. It was great to try some different things and the sauces for each meat were also very tasty. My wife had a Thai curry which was also very flavourful.

Desserts were great too, a creme brulee which will be different each day was my wife's choice and I had the honey cheesecake (fab!)

There are some interesting artwork and crafts upstairs to look at too. In all it was a great evening.

The service was great with the waitress knowing everything about the menu and giving suggestions. The food was fabulous and the restaurant was very quiet. Small and had food traditional to the area.

We were allocated the "kitchen view" table with a unique view into the kitchen as the food is prepared - very interesting and a brave move for any establishment!
The service was excellent and the food was very good. Well worth a visit when you are in the area.
