Delicious, beautiful food! The dishes are true to South African cuisine, with a sophisticated twist. Every foodie's dream, and worth the trip.

The breakfasts are to die for and the Eggs Benedict not to be missed. The drinks are pretty pricy so take it easy.....

On the start of the Rubens reataurant, some years ago, we did find it excellent, but it detoriated after some time and we haven't been back for approx 1 ½ year. This time it was a pleasant and excellent lunch experience with some nice local wines from the Robertson area. A negative was the table cloth and servets they could use a better laundry service to get it spotless clean. Yes we will be back, sooner or later.

This restaurant gets a huge thumbs up for the simple but expertly executed menu, and attentive but unintrusive service. The ambience is classical and warm, with outdoor dining under fairy lit trees an option in warmer months. Reuben is a local classic, and definitely worth trying his delicious food in small town South Africa. Not to miss!
