We had dinner, overnight stay and breakfast at The ared Tinroof, very neat and tidy rooms, good food and very friendly staff. Sam is a friendly hostess, it felt like home. It would have been helpfull to have the option of twinrooms, they only have double beds, that is not practical with two teenagers a boy and a girl.

The Red Tin Roof is the place to go to if you are visiting Riebeeck Kasteel. The food is outstanding. The rooms are top class. The pub is festive. The staff extremely friendly and accommodating. Loved it. The owners Sam and Jacques, are such interesting people and have made this place a home away from home.

The Red Tin roof was a roar. Beautiful, magically decorated, place, very friendly staff, exceptional meals and one of the funnest, prettiest towns in the Western Cape. Really a very pleasant experience.

I had googled places to eat in Riebek when I came across Red Tin Roof. It said "vetkoek Burger".... this has to be the BEST invention I have ever had and the quality of the food was outstanding. The service was so friendly- not overly happy but efficient and on the move. It felt sooo great spending a day there,... More

We thought we had booked the Bistro round the square and when we arrived were a bit disappointed especially as the front looks a little ordinary, however were we in for a surprise when we were taken through into the lovely spacious tree shaded garden with a complimentary glass of bubbly in our hand and over to the guest rooms...
