“Best Food in Oudtshoorn”
Reviewed 8 January 2013

Beautiful restaurant in the center of town. Good variety menu with Karoo specialty dishes. Good wine list with good value for money local wines. The service is attentive and professional. Their biggest asset is their consistency - service and food - always good. Thank you for respecting food and sering it well.

“Best restaurant in Oudtshoorn”
Reviewed 7 January 2013

This was the best restaurant we visited while in Oudtshoorn.
Make sure to make reservations and ask to sit outside.
The food is excellent, as is the wine.
We sat outside in the front garden.
Romantic ambience.
Very attentive staff.
Don't miss this experience!

“Do not miss this restaurant”
Reviewed 30 December 2012 via mobile

Kalinka is a top notch restaurant. The setting is great, the service is good but the food is excellent.
Without going into detail the African Trio was the standout dish-- springkok, kudu and ostrich steaks, a great way to compare the three meats. We also had an excellent pinotage, was served at room temperature which had been 40 degrees during the day, needed to be chilled to be really appreciated.
This dinner was one of the finest we have had in Africa.
