Received our starter after the main course. Waitress was very ignorant about our complaints and did very little to assist in the matter

The service was really poor. The waiter was really rude and it took more than an hour to get our food. The food was good and not too expensive though.

We stopped here on a Sunday evening for supper. I ordered medium steak but Upon receiving my food realized that I have a medium to rare steak which I returned to the kitchen. When it was returned only the first slice was better cooked, still very raw in the middle, so I did not finish it. Upon clearing the table,... More

We stopped here for dinner without a booking and we were told that there was only one table available to accommodated all 9 of us, which was a bit of a squeeze. Every table had a reserved sign which caused some confusion because a lot of them remained empty throughout the night. I have no doubt that potential customers looked... More

Arrived for a brunch meal and discovered that most of the tables were "reserved" only after asking, were we permitted to have a meal. Good coffee, pleasant service by a waitress who paid attention to the order. Pleased to have visited it, based on the advice from our friend who live in Harrismith.

If you arrive for a late breakfast do not be put off by the reserved signs on all the tables, they just put out reserved for lunch early. All four of us had the Dodelsak breakfast and we were all pleasantly suprised at what a good breakfast it the was. The steak was a normal meal steak not a thin... More

There are many over-priced restaurants in Clarens. However, the Highlander provides good hearty food at reasonable prices. A typical pub type atmosphere greets you. A reasonable variety on the menu should please most. Whether it's soup, oxtail, pizza or breakfast - you won't be disappointed. I would rate the pizza the best in town. This is the place you would...

Walked in and half the tables were reserved, asked about a table and was told they are full before the waitress just turned her back on me and walked away. When I followed her and highlighted there was some tables with no reserved signs in the very corner, she simply replied “oh yea, sit there then” before walking away again.... More

I ate here with colleagues after a long, tiring day, when we were all cold and hungry. This was a lovely way to wind down and end a great day. The portion sizes were large so I recommend going with an empty stomach. I had a German sausage and salad, which was on the light meals list and which was... More
