Eating at the Mez Karoo Restaurant is a special experience, waiting to be discovered. Michelle Berry has created a wonderfully welcoming environment, with a constantly changing, compact menu of Mediterranean dishes that never disappoint! I have taken many visitors, both from around South Africa and the rest of the world, and all have commented on the experience as memorable. Whether Karoo lamb, or ostrich or the melanzane...the food is always an adventure. Thanks Michelle!

This was quite an interesting experience with a pleasant and surprising combination of different tastes.This small, intimate and homely boutique restaurant in the midst of Barrydale was a great experience. The hostess/chef/owner, did a great job and tended to our needs. The food was highly enjoyable and I will like to return to try more items on the menu. Thank you for a memorable evening. Just remember to book to avoid disappointment.

Fabulous food in this small town, blown away by the standards. This restaurant could hold its own in any large US city. A must if you are traveling Route 62

This restaurant saved our lives, figuratively, and redeemed what would have been an abysmal experience of Barrydale. The service was welcoming and friendly, the venue was clean and simple and the food was fresh and flavoursome. The menu is written on a board and obviously changes daily depending on produce (much of which comes from the garden). We enjoyed a mezze platter with olives, freshly made hummus, freshly baked bread, a killer chilli chutney, tomatoes and basil, feta cheese and olive oil. We followed this with a meat platter with greek lamb, moroccan chicken and spicy meatballs. We finished with a rose-flavoured home-made ice-cream with brulee crumble. It was resonably priced and is not yet licensed (so remember to bring a bottle). We were assured by locals that this was the best restaurant in town, and as it was the only restaurant open on a Thursday (other than the hotel which is another story) I will have to agree. I was dissapointed to have to eat greek and turkish food in a Karoo town, but I was in no ways dissapointed in the excellent meal I enjoyed there. Thank you Michelle and Mez Karoo.
