We popped in unannounced for lunch and we were very well liked after. The salads were excellent and the seafood soup was fantastic. Liked it so much we booked for Diinner tomorrow night. The shady garden/grotto at the back is great place to unwind in the shade. Great value for money.

Decorated in victorian style with interesting knick-knacks, 1940s music, open fire, friendly manageress. Nicely whacky. Excellent food.

This restaurant came very highly recommended however although the decor was quaint the food was disappointing. Portion size was smaller than expected and was average. We were rushed through our meal ......not what we expected

The seafood platter was a pleasure. White fish fried in butter, strips of Calmari, Mussels and Prawns on a bed of rice with a green salad. Enough for both my wife and myself as a main course. I don't normally choose seafood but I really enjoyed this plate. Excellent value at 292 Rand. The restaurant is quaint and homely with... More

Have been here for dinner. Nice athmophere, friendly staff and great traditional South Africa food. We were so happy to find four traditional SA main courses on the menue after having often really good meat on our SA trip. We have choosen the Bobotie and the Tamatiebredi. Jana recommended the Bobotie and she was right. Great taste and nice arrangement... More

We've been to rosemary's because of a tip of friends. We were lucky to get a free table at saturday in the evening, because it was nearly booked out.. The waiter welcomed us really really warmly (amazing!) The ambiente was oldfashioned and really cosy. We decided to eat african dishes and the food was really really good. We had a... More
