Our GH-host recommended this restaurant and we were very grateful for this!
Alan services his clients in a perfect manner and with a touch of humour ... well appreciated. I personally recommend the Snoek Springrolls as a starter : exquisite ! The ostrich bobotie came next and was also a feast for the mouth. Well balanced wine list.
Definitely value for the money.

What an incredible place! We had breakfast and dinner at this amazing restaurant and really enjoyed it. I highly recommend visiting The Powell House. The owners are amazing and made us feel so welcome but most of all they made it feel as it was a home away home! I will definitely visit this place again, even if I am just passing through Swellendam.

Tips
1) Order the Eton Mess dessert, it will blow your mind.
2) Speak to the owners, they are delightful

I stayed over in Swellendam while on business and the establishment where I was staying recommended the Powell House Restaurant. Well it definitely did not disappoint... Alan was an amazing host. I checked in on Facebook and wrote "Dinner for One" as I was dining on my own. I suddenly had this flashback to "Dinner for One" - the movie / video (for those of you have seen it you will know what I mean). He fits the character completely... All that was missing was "the rug".... Thanks Alan ... Great food, great atmosphere and the van Riebeeck Coffee was a great way to end the evening! (I have posted a picture of Alan)..

We had not eaten here previously during our visits to Swellendam but as it was recommended and only 'next door' to our GH we gave it a try. What a great experience. The menu was not as extensive as many of the South African Restaurants we had eaten at but this is often a good sign of things to come. Our meals of Hake and Cape Malay curry were absolutely excellent, as was my Eton Mess for dessert. The owner's service and attention was perfectly pitched and we look forward to our return in the future.
