My wife and i stopped here for a light lunch recently. I had a cinnamon/banana pancake (a favourite) which was excellent, and my wife had the Pickled fish & salad which she said was outstanding!
The menu & wine list is value for money combined with good service (a rare occasion on the Garden route these days).Highly recommended for another visit!

My partner and I ate here mid-week in early January on a very hot evening. The small terrace at the front of the restaurant was full so we chose a table at the back of the dining room overlooking the garden and the owner kindly opened the window. Nothing was too much trouble even though we'd chosen one of the only tables not laid for dinner! This place is run by a husband and wife team. The husband runs front of house impeccably and his wife cooks - beautifully. I started with mussels which are a favourite. These were excellent. We had a really nice meal with great suggestions for aperitifs and accompanying wine. We would have eaten here again on the return leg of our journey but sadly they don't open on a Sunday. If you are overnighting in or near Swellendam we would highly recommend this place for good food and laid back atmosphere.
