“Value all the way”
Reviewed 6 April 2014

This must be one of the most varied choice establishments for miles and by miles.
For young and old the variety of products freshly cooked before your very eyes is amazing.......its always good, sometimes excellent
there really is something for every one......occasionally a little on the underlit side...but hey we should be there only for the food and atmosphere...not book reading!

“Make sure you are hungry!”
Reviewed 24 March 2014

The portions here are huge so be careful! All the food (except the steak) is cooked in the pizza oven and there is a variety of the usual italian pizza and pasta options, as well as fish and meat dishes. They are happy to give you a 'doggy bag', and also to take your own wine. Just make room for a Dom Pedro for desert. The best I have ever tasted! Great atmosphere - I have just been for the third time in as many years and it is always full, so you may want to book in advance.

“Wish we'd found this place earlier!”
Reviewed 12 March 2014

We were staying in Onrus and came here in the last night of our visit. Had we come on the first night we wouldn't have gone anywhere else! The food was superb, the service was excellent and it was one of the very best meals that we had during our three week stay in South Africa. The mussels and catch of the day were to die for! The atmosphere is informal and fun.

“Feel at home...”
Reviewed 28 February 2014 via mobile

Well, this charming little restaurant offer a great menu with home style meals and a great "specials of the day" offering. Friendly staff and a great chef makes this place a Cousy night out

“Great Restaurant”
Reviewed 22 February 2014

This restaurant was recommended by South African chums who visit Onrus several times each year. We had dinner there one evening. It is a delightful and relaxed place with excellent service. You can watch the chef preparing your food through the open plan kitchen. I was served a wonderful steak, probably the best in recent years. My wife's fish was also excellent. Highly recommended but you need to book in advance.
