Despite a power cut the food was almost all available as they have gas ovens and a generator. The paraffin lamp was a smelly necessity until the power came back on. The menu is confusing as it covers snack through to full restaurant items. Once one has worked out which sections applies the choice is good. It was good too.... More

We had dinner at Julians while staying in Bredasdorp, and although our meal was very pleasant, I'm not quite sure what all the fuss is about. The setting and atmosphere is lovely, the restaurant is split in 2 sections with the smoking section in the bar area which is separated from the non-smoking section by a courtyard with a water...

A big thank you to Liz and Julian, and also grateful to our guest house owner (Anne-Mare) for recommending Julian's. Firstly we misunderstood as we saw the corkage charged and assumed they didn't serve wine....our loss as they had an extensive wine list and we only had a bottle we'd bought from the local supermarket! Further on in our trip... More

i was blessed to dine at Julian's and ordered the house spare ribs, if you think the restaurant environment, drinks, staff, shop, stock and pure pleasure to visit was spectacular you had to taste the rib that was prepared for me. LIZZ, JULIAN and their daughter ROBIN went out of their way to make you feel at home. Honestly, only... More

We went there for dinner on 07 Jan2015, ordered a rump steak! Wow fantastic, it was tender and cooked to perfection and by far the best rump steak I ever ate! This is a gem for a small town like Bredasdorp.

Not only can you shop to your hearts content in the shop but from the get go we had the best waiter and service was great. I managed to spill my very hot coffee (as it should be) on myself and Dominique our waiter assisted her crying patron (me) with loads of ice and cleaning aid. The food was great.... More

Lovely decor and confortable seating but disappointing meals: Kabeljou terribly dry - obviously too long in the oven- , served with a sallad made up of floppy luke warm lettuce and tomatoes that must have been cut up and kept in a warm kitchen, hours before serving. Pumkin fritters and mushrooms, both deep fried untill they are too dark.... Pumpkin... More

Took customers to this restaurant for dinner. The staff are very friendly and informative. The starters were tasty and the rump steak with pepper sauce was great value. The vegetables that accompanied the main meal were fresh and tasty. Best restaurant in Bredasdorp.

Still the best. We adore everything in Julians, from the beautiful ceramics, paintings and decor, to the divine food. I need to compliment Dora on being an exceptional waitress. As always, the food was well prepared, and of exceptional quality. The ingredients is most definitely of the best quality. I can suggest the Rump/Lamb Chops/Chicken Liver Salad/Lamb Pockets/Snoek Samoosa's. The... More
