“Homey food”
Reviewed 7 August 2014

We've been once or twice and I have never been disappointed. I like how cosy it feels, the staff is very professional and the food was proper home-cooked goodness

“Traditional meals made amazingly”
Reviewed 4 August 2014

I only like their butternut soup. I really enjoy ALL the stews and you wouldnt be disappointed in any of their main meals. They even have an option for a combination of 3 which is quite good value for money.
I will go back anytime. The setting is old style Stellenbosch and gives you an idea of what the houses were like back in the day. Its warm and cosy and you feel so welcome and dont want to leave! Definitely a place to take the family and parents for a lovely evening out!

“Lovely”
Reviewed 17 July 2014 via mobile

We had dinner at this cute and cozy little restaurant in the heart of Stellenbosch. The service was excellent and the food was traditional and delicious. Good value for money and an altogether very satisfying experience...

“Well , there must be something about this old favorite”
Reviewed 16 July 2014

I had the duck, my friend the Meraai se pie
Afraid my duck was cold, and the plate was cold.
The pie looked bland served only with rice. No jus
The service was good , the band a but tired, sounded like a garage band.
Would I go again, no don't think so ....

“So-so”
Reviewed 22 June 2014

We had dinner there one night. Both of us had the Bobotie (a south african dish) . What a dissapointment. It was like a pie with a mince inside that had almost no flavour. Where did all the lovely flavours of a bobotie dissapear to? The chutney that whent with the dish was like cooked dried peaches or apricots, needs flavour. The service was good but not the food.
