“Just Awfull!”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 March 2014

Thank goodness this restaurant has closed! The one and only meal we had there was just awfull. After complaining to the waitress, on leaving the owner pretended not to have been informed. He asked us to return and enjoy a complementary meal. Needless to say, we never accepted his kind offer. I will keep an eye open to see if another restaurant takes its place.

“Good Food, Good Value”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 March 2014

Good food at a good price. Nothing too fancy, fairly straight forward menu. Always busy, particularly at the weekends. Lot of locals eat here too - always a good sign

“A waste of time”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 December 2013 via mobile

Okay, so we weren't expecting the best food in South Africa when we stopped on a Sunday in the little town of Graaf Reniet, but this was just ridiculously bad. Service was slow and the food was even slower - it took 65 minutes for 3 vegetarian meals to arrive... By which stage I was starving. The food itself did nothing to make up for the wait. The veg pasta was completely tasteless and the 'beg masala' crepe was literally boiled vegetables in a pancake with cheese sauce. Not a spice in sight. I have discovered some really special restaurants in small towns in SA, but I won't be visiting this one again.
