“Excellent food. Welcoming hosts.”
Reviewed 3 June 2014

We were in South Africa on our honeymoon. We didn't stay at Four Oaks, we were staying at another guest house in Montagu for a couple of days and were recommended Four Oaks as a great place to go for a meal. The food and wine was excellent and at a great price, but what really made this place stand out were the owners Simon and Wendy and how friendly and welcoming they were. After our meal we stayed for a few drinks and a chat with them, they were very keen to share their great local knowledge and experience with us. Highly recommended! If we're ever in this part of the World again I would definitely go back.

Fantastic spot within easy walking distance of the centre on Montagu. Excellent gourmet food at very reasonable prices. Wendy's mushroom soup with basil ice cream was the stuff of legend. Thoroughly enjoyed our stay. If staying elsewhere,a meal at the restaurant is well worth it.

The staff/owners of Four Oaks went out of their way to make our stay comfortable and memorable. They have a great knowledge of the area. The food is all prepared fresh and is absolutely amazing. There is also a lovely little pub on the premises.

My husband, daughter & I spent one night at the guest house during our trip along Route 62. The rooms were very clean and comfortable. The highlight for us was the magnificent dinner that we had. We spent over 2 weeks in South Africa and this meal was the most memorable for us. Simon and Wendy were great hosts and made us feel very welcome and offered some great suggestions about traveling in the area.

The lovely old house, well appointed and comfortable rooms and attentive owners provided a welcome venue for our overnight stop in Montagu. A bonus was the excellent restaurant with well presented and tasty food.

We went for evening meal on a tuesday evening and the place was full- always a good sign. Friendly welcome from the proprietors whom we had previously met at their excellent Cafe in Robertson 15 months prior. Superb chilled soup starter and fresh smoked trout salad, mains of chicken breast and mixed seafood pasta. Great choices. Route 62 is getting a great reputation as the food and wine alternative to the standard garden route N2. Lovely wines all sourced from within 15 km of Montagu. Excellent friendly service and attention to detail.

Personal service and attention to detail lifts this fantastic restaurant to the top of the pile.
Don't be put off by previous reports under the previous owners, we had no regrets in choosing to eat here. Expert choice of wine menus an first class cooking ensures a memorable evening. We will have to sample the Guest rooms next visit.
