Wonderful little restaurant. Have a great meal in the backgarden. We were a party of 4 and everyone raved about their dish. Shop for antiques afterwards.

We arrived fairly late and had not booked but this restaurant was recommended by our lodge. It is a lovely quirky restaurant - shame we were too late to se the gardens. We love to visit different restaurants especially those which are not too stiff or overpowering. This one is comfortable, has interesting and some antique furniture as well as... More

Strongly recommended by our guest house but an experience that did not quite hit the mark for us. The restaurant comprises a series of quirkily decorated rooms. We were led through to the back room - really a conservatory but it was too dark to see outside. The service was friendly but food slow arriving and bread was not provided... More

The restaurant is very attractive both from the outside and inside. There is a wonderful garden in the center which provides a delightful atmosphere for dinner. We enjoyed their specials on a quiet Sunday evening. The service from the nice ladies was quick and efficient. The food was very good and we were pleasantly surprised considering that Gansbaii is pretty... More

Thyme at Rosemary was our last stop on our way back from a long weekend spent in Kleinbaai. We had a lovely time in the gardens at the back. Very friendly reception when I phoned to book a table (Pauline?) and the service throughout our visit was extremely warm, efficient and friendly; all staff. Interesting furniture and items on show...

We were treated to one of the best evenings I've ever had in a restaurant in a very long time. The ambience in the restaurant was warm and cosy, the staff was friendly and helpful. The decor in the house is absolutely beautiful and the food was devine. I have to say this again, everything was great, but the food... More

We had dinner here, recommended by our hotel (cliff lodge). The place feels a bit spooky because of the special interior (old furniture, quite dark, several rooms, the old lady with the black dress...) Still it was fun because the restaurant is unique, I have never seen a restaurant like this before. Food is good and solid and comes with... More
