We had the pleasure of returning again to this jewel of place. Now in winter, the cellar is warmed by few fires and it really adds to the atmosphere. We had the Punjabi Lamb Curry - cooked to perfection and the Chicken Curry which has the perfect balance of flavours. The portions are bang for buck and the service personal and great. Susanna and John, be sure to see us again soon.

What a surprise De Oude Wellington was! The food was absolutely amazing...think 'hearty' 'gourmet' food combined with warm boland hospitality. This is definitely a 'must' for anyone living or visiting Wellington.

We stumbled upon this place when we were visiting Diemersfontein. We were hungry and their restaurant was closed, but we got a suggestion to visit the Oude Wellington Restaurant and it was amazing. I had the lamb, and my boyfriend had the steak. The ambience in the place is awesome and it is definitely worth trying. Delicious!!!

We were recommended to come here by another guest house in Wellington and we were very glad we did. The food was excellent - not highly salted as happens in many restaurants in South Africa. I had ostrich - a favourite of mine - it was beautiful and the portions were enormous. My partner had sesame chicken - also excellent. We can't fault this restaurant and my only complaint is that we couldn't go back the next day. Full marks or as they say in SA - 100%!

What a pleasure for us to visit John and Susanna. He listens , what you like then he brings out the most magnificent dishes. Sometimes a variety of the Menu if you cannot decide! With local boutique wines of his area.The atmosphere is cosy and with fireplaces for winter. Excellent service and good company. A definite experience you cannot afford to miss!
