“Worst 'burger' of my life!”

I was there a week ago with my daughter. She ordered the regular burger, I ordered the lamb burger. Both were very expensive and - uneatable. I think they were made of crushed bones and other kitchen rubbbish. And nobody enquired, when we gave the unfinished 'burgers' back. I think years ago this was a recommendable place. Definitely a goner now!

Clarke's new venue is stylish and Mike is on hand to give a warm welcome. Tasty calamari starter, followed by well presented curry dishes, of excellent quality. Try the Virgin Earth wines good quality and reasonable price.
Dont miss this quaint spot on Route 62, Barrydale and dont forget to take a jar of Clarke's homemade preserve with you - we chose the cherry jam which is really good

Firstly to find a restaurant where you are treated well, set at ease by the owner AND then on top of that enjoy an excellent quality meal and this miles away from any city is in my books a winner.

Clarke makes his curry with LAMB (most other places in the Karoo use mutton). The curry was as good as I last experienced in England, super quality.

Add to this a really good red wine from Joubert-Tradouw, and I can easily tell everyone who passes through Barrydale to not drive through without stopping for a meal at Clarke's of the Karoo.

Well done to this fine establishment!

We had dinner at this restaurant which was very enjoyable. A fireplace keeps guests warm on cold winter evenings. The lamb is superb.

Excellent food served very distinctive with great mannerism. Tasty meats complimented by fresh vegetables and rounded off by a light and refreshing black cherry vanilla ice cream cake. Just enough to send you home with appreciation for food masterly prepared.
