Description: De Volkskombuis restaurant offers great food and ambiance with great contemporary Cape interior, that shows off the beauty of the building's heritage, and some magnificent antiques, in a contemporary way. Some of the dishes on our menu such as the Boland Bobotie and Gesmoorde beesstert showcases the best of the traditional Cape cuisine. The service is very attentive and yet not intrusive, and the food mirrors the interiors, a contemporary update of the classic Cape food that the restaurant has been known for over the years. We welcome you to the newly renovated De Volkskombuis restaurant under new ownership and management.

Everything about this restaurant is wonderful. We had a lovely warm and friendly greeting on our arrival and were then looked after by a perfectly wonderful waitress, who explained all our questions carefully and served the food in a most professional way and had a delightful sense of humour. The food was beautifully presented and was delicious. The Chef made my husband's birthday memorable by delivering the chocolate delicacy with one candle to him personally.

Visited @ 13h00 and waited for 90 minutes for food.... rather book first seating and order quickly. Interior warm and homely creating a good atmosphere. Expected more traditional options. Slightly pricy. Overall food average.

Enjoyed lunch with a group of business friends. Had high expectations of the New Volkskombuis, in remembering the original Volkskombuis with it's excellent regional food. I ordered the oxtail, but was sadly disappointed. Although tender, the portion (served in a soup plate) was small, bland, unappealing (no garnishing - served only with mushy mashed potato's) and certainly not good value for money.

Well situated with ample parking. Food is fabulous - traditional meals such as Oxtail and Bobotie. Portions just the right size. Good friendly staff and service. Great for a rainy or sunny day.
