For the best local food, excellent service and a wonderful meal out do not miss out on this restaurant. Ask to meet Rosemary. She is an incredible and very talented lady.

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

Restaurant has loads of charm - sadly we were there on a night with no customers, so lacked a bit atmosphere for us - food was lovely and very South African - the lamb bruschetta starter was out of this world !

This place looks like a scene where your grandmother meets Harry Potter: old fashioned furniture with weird pointy drapes in front of the windows. Although there was a fire burning, it couldn't heat the restaurant, so we had to sit with our coats on for quite a while before we felt comfortable enough to take them off. I know SA... More

Thank you for your comment. We are so sorry you missed Harry Potter! As you mention, the decor is unique and we are proud of it. 99% of our guests love it because it is so unusual. Your comment about the service is not a true reflection of what happened and we are disappointed you did not say anything while... More
