Wonderful place for a light meal and the BEST pancakes in a stylish intimate restaurant with verandah seating. We also love their beef and bean soup and baked cheese cake which we had last time we visited.

Interesting twist on pancakes. I never had anything quite like it in the U.S. loved the pork with apricot stuffed pancake. Fond memories here. Heading back to East Africa in May, hope there is a harries in Burundi.

Group of us went here as part of a Friendly Planet tour. The savory pancake was tasty, but the star of the show was the banana pancake with ice cream. This is a must try dish!

A real gem in this small town. I had heard the reviews and I have to agree these are the "best pancakes I've ever tasted". So very light and fluffy that you just can't resist having both the savoury and sweet yum yum. Four of us dined there at lunchtime and the firm favourites were the traditional bobotie filling and...

I always enjoy Harrie's. Have been to the Pretoria one many times over the years and the one that used to be at Cape Town's V&A Waterfront as well. When I find something I enjoy at a particular place, that is what I tend to re-order. I enjoy the Bobotie pancake. I agree with another reviewer that it could be... More

Went for a quick pancake and coffee on a coldish, rainy day. Good quality South African pancakes, but expensive and considering the smallish pancake and filling. Loved the traditional boboti filling, although it could have been more spicy to South African boboti standards (was almost bland).

The service is a little bit slow due to the fact it's so good that it's always very crowded, but it's really worthed the... More

We were taken here on our tour. Local guide, Charles recommended Harrys Pancakes, and our group of 19 were seated, and the service was fairly good. Food was excellent, and pricing was very good value. Would definitely go here again.

It is definitely worth stopping by and having whatever they have on their menu. I had a spinach + feta cheese pancake that was divine. My friends had other pancakes and sandwich and those were delicious as well. Staff is very friendly and it's on a good location. If you're there make sure you stop at the African Silk store.... More
