“Value for money”
Reviewed 7 August 2014 via mobile

Lunch for 6 people, including a tip was R610. The pasta was well prepared and looked divine. The rump and fillet steak was cheap - R100 for 300g of rump. You get a side salad as well as vegetables with your meal. Their coffee is a proper mug and you even get cream in the side. Definitely a restaurant to visit

“Great affordable food and atmosphere!”
Reviewed 29 June 2014

The only reason we randomly chose this place was because we saw there's a special Mad Mondays: 1/2 price on main meals and grill.

Food: We had grilled chicken breast and grilled ostrich of course! The meat was cooked perfectly, the chicken was tender and juicy and flavourful. The ostrich was chewy, like the texture of beef-meat, with no particular strong taste. The side dishes (both the salad and the vegetables) were super good! The food was so good that it made me forgive them for the long wait~

Service: Slow, SUPER EXTRA slow, because of special Mondays? I don't know. I have been to busier restaurants and did not had to wait over an hour in the cold for my food to come... The only reason why I didn't gave a 5 stars~

Value: Inexpensive!!

Atmosphere: There's maybe 2 tables indoor, most of seating are outdoor. As the night turns darker, they turned on the candlelight on the table and it was really cute and nice.

“A tasty Italian place with nice local influence”
Reviewed 1 May 2014

The owners of our guesthouse recommanded La Dolce Vita for us, we've asked them for a good afordable restaurant in Oudtshoorn and their you go, La Dolce Vita was the perfect choice!
Make a reservation if you want to go in the weekend and you definetly have to try a local starter called Triplet of Ostrich (not sure about the name but you will find it with this discription). It's a plate with grilled ostrich meat, ostrich carpaccio and ostrich paté, fantastic!
