The food and the service was very good .The inside section of the restaurant is very lovely furn7shed with antiques & very nice place settings. We however sat outside in a beautiful courtyard filled with bougainvillea & fig trees with ripe delicious figs. I ordered a chicken Caesar salad which was delicious but certainly no relation to a Caesar salad... More

We were recommended this restaurant by our Guest House in De Kelders and it was superb. The service was top notch and the restaurant had a great atmosphere. We had the lamb and blue cheese bruschetta for starter and it was lovely. The ribs for main were unbelievable, the nicest i've ever had. Praise indeed. Highly recommend this place.

Thyme at Rosemary's is a great restaurant of the area. The experience is different from regular restaurants because as soon as you step inside this "House-like" restaurant it feels as if you've entered a different era. Old pictures and furniture transport you to a time in the past. We ordered their Oxtail (a South African delicacy) and it was amazing.... More

There are few good restaurants in this area and this is one definitely to visit. During the day there is a wonderful garden and in the evening the main dining area has great atmosphere. The food and the service are excellent.

Visiting this charming place was an experience beyond just food. It is like visiting someone's home and having dinner in their living room. The food was great, impeccable service and Rosemary herself talks to every table to ensure they are enjoying themselves. She runs a tight ship which she has every reason to be very proud of.

This is truly a hidden gem for all food-lovers visiting Gansbaai. An old world charm little restaurant / cafe that caters for some of the most amazing dishes. We had the catch of the day and Oxtail, which both were some of the best meals we have been served in a restaurant. I highly recommend the Muscles as a starter.... More

Having attended a wedding celebration over the weekend, we were looking for something small on a Sunday evening. Much to our surprise, the staff was willing to accommodate us, even if it was after 8! The decor in the main house was vintage, and so was the decor on the porch ('stoep'). I agree with other reviews that walking through... More

Great seafood meal of Mussels in a white wine sauce, followed by the pan friend Cape Salmon accompanied with country style veggies. Excellent presentation, with great attention to detail, and good team service. Unfortunately they had run out of the famed cheesecake, and Rosemary, please allow your guests to include our tip with our credit card payment, as opposed to... More
