This is one of my favourite places and is owned by one of my favourite people, Rosemary. Her attention to detail, both inside and outside her restaurant is un-paralled. Not only is her menu delicious, she personally controls the quality of all the food prepared in her kitchen. The garden she has created at the back of the restaurant is... More

Small restaurant with good choices and personal service. Highly recommended. Not sure if ownership changed or very interesting owner lady was just not present, but nevertheless, the food was just as good and the experience wonderful.

In addition to the delicious bobotie, We had the opportunity to meet Rosemary. A lovely lady who came around to our table to chat, who ended up sharing some interesting details of her life. As always, it is the people who make the experience special. Service just a bit slow, so be prepared to relax and savor.

Atmosphere and food were just amazing. Had a group of six and there were not even a whisper of any complaints from any member of the group. Awesome stuff

Our waitress was very pleasant, very smiley and kind. I am vegetarian and became very nervous when I reviewed the menu. I did not see anything vegetarian and almost asked our group of 6 to leave. However, I am glad I inquired if they would be able to accommodate me with a vegetarian dish. Without missing a beat, the waitress... More

Spent a wonderful weekend in Gansbaai with friends and couldn't wait to return to Thyme at Rosemary. I so love the charm and ambience of this precious and homely restaurant. The attention to detail is marvellous in the decor, kind of classy, country chic and also quite quirky. We were fortunate enough to chat to Rosemary for a while and... More

Arrived in Gansbaai fairly late one evening, and Rosemary's took us in! I really think they stayed open late for us, and provided us with a wonderful meal and great friendly service. We sat in the back sun room and they turned on a heater for us. It was lovely and cozy. We all tried different things off the menu... More
