Great for large groups. The "black forest cake" cannot even pass as a nice chocolate cake. However, the service is very good.

My husband and I enjoyed breakfast one Friday morning in February. The servings are generous and the food is delicious. Highly recommended.

I love going to Proviant for a Saturday or Sunday lunch. The staff are always friendly and the food is great. A lovely kiddies area as well as kiddies menu. The Sunday guitarist is always a treat and the vibe great. The owner is welcoming and goes the extra mile for his clients.

From order to table was probably 15min, food was delicious and there is a great place for the kids to play and even touch some farm animals. Some great Afrikaner dishes on the menu

Rustic restaurant serving traditional Afrikaans dishes, very good and wholesome. Deli provides nice home baked pies and bread. Easy to find on the Main Road in Paarl. Recommended for lunch for the views at the back of the restaurant, it is also less noisy, as you get some noise from the traffic at the front.

I met a few friends for an impromptu breakfast and had a really enjoyable time. The food was good, the staff were friendly and professional and the setting was lovely. I will be taking others there. The inside arrangement looked comfortable and smart without being pretentious and if the breakfast is anything to go by the rest of the food... More

I came across Proviant by chance late on a Sunday afternoon. I opted for the three course South African buffet. The salad was good, and the traditional South African dishes were tasty. The milk tart for dessert was very fresh and delicious. The staff could not have been nicer. The outdoor seating area was very comfortable, and they had a... More

On a Monday, we went to Proviant Restaurant which is in the midst of a vineyard. TRaditional bobotie spring rolls with traditional bread and soup. The food may be new to me but I found them delicious. This was followed by wine tasting since beside the restaurant is the cellar which they also owned. It was an outdoor restaurant. We... More
