“Thoughtful, Welcoming, and Delicious!”
Reviewed 31 May 2014 via mobile

My husband and I ate dinner here with another couple and had an impeccable experience from start to finish. We received first class service and ate a fantastic dinner, especially the oxtail! I would return here tomorrow if I could, then the next day, too.

“Once, Twice, Thrice”
Reviewed 19 May 2014

Thyme spent at Rosemary, can never be once,
If really not possible, then do it twice,
If out of the question, then do it thrice.

“Excellent”
Reviewed 29 April 2014

wonderful wonderful place to enjoy lunch. They have got the vibe here just right and serve excellent food for reasonable prices. My partner and I tried some of the traditional South African dish sat in the beautiful garden under the fig trees. Wish we lived nearer so could go back soon!

“Good seafood salad but poor wine”
Reviewed 25 April 2014

A pleasant enough setting to have a light lunch. The seafood salad was generous and comprised prawns and calamari in a green salad with a pleasant sauce served in a mini-bottle. However, we ordered a glass of white wine each and were served with a really dark Sauvignon Blanc which was either very well box or bottle aged or maybe was not Sauvignon Blanc! Should have sent it back! Other than the wine it was reasonable value for money.

We appreciate your honest review.

It saddens us that the wine was not returned when not to your liking or expectations.
We have since looked into the matter and discovered the bottle of wine was in fact aged.
We would like to offer you an invitation to return at your convenience for a complimentary coffee and home-made cheese cake.
We do thank you for the positive review regarding the seafood salad.

Warmest Regards

Rosemary
