Incredible Lamb Curry

Jam Tarts has a genie in the kitchen who makes the most delectable lamb curry, we've eaten here on numerous occasions, the pizza is good, and the owner Terri makes a mean salad, fresh and always more than enough also give her homemade chilli a try it goes well with the pizza.

A very charming welcome with laid back vibes. We just popped in for a drink, but will definately return for lunch next time. there were loads of home made treats for sale (jams, pickles etc) Very quirky and interesting decor - i would recommend that you just walk around and snap some pics... it was really nice.

We've been here multiple times for their incredible homemade beef burgers. Definitely worth the trip! 10/10.

Cute little place, great smoothie, but the burger I had was average and so was the service. Otherwise it's a great location and setting.

We arrived almost at their closing time but the owner was so kind to accept us. We had a lovely fresh salad and a nice pizza on their terrace.

Had dinner here on the recommendation of Tradouw Guestlodge (a very nice place to stay) but was rather disappointed. I specifically asked the owners what they would recommend on that day and they agreed on the "duck"... the most expensive item on their menu. It was a rubbery, bland and tiny little affair that left me feeling very unfulfilled. Perhaps... More
