“Good food and good service ”
Reviewed 6 April 2014 via mobile

We had the lamb neck stew and the bobotie. The bobotie was warmed up in the microwave but it was delicious. The lamb neck stew was extremely tasty and filling - generous portions. The price is average and service is good as they make you feel right at home. Also the wine per glass serving is generous, which is always great!

“Excellent food, fantastic value, great service”
Reviewed 30 March 2014

Best value I got out of a meal in a long time (which might also be due to the exchange rate of the Rand / Euro, but still...). We really liked the steak, the cordon bleu and the traditional Karoo food. Don't miss this place - it has amazing food and service to offer...
We did not go anywhere else after we tried this on our 1st evening in Graaff-Reinet.
