BUT, when we received our food, it was nothing less than culinary excellence. I wasn't sure as to what... read more

I had a delicious pizza and my husband had Oxtail which he really enjoyed. Good ambience and it has an outdoor section where you can sit and enjoy the hustle and bustle of Clarens.

Go spoil yourself with delicious snails for starters and a large Eisbein for main. After lunch/dinner you can either grab a coffee from their roastery or enjoy one of their many selective whiskey's both right next door from the restaurant.

Had a good breakfast. The coffee was good as was the Highlander breakfast - bacon, sausage, fried eggs on toast. My son enjoyed the Florentine and asked for the kippers on the side which was respected.

My friends and I went to Highlander Bistro before heading home around 9.30 am. We all wanted the pot pie which is not part of the breakfast menu. The staff were very accommodating and we left Clarens with our bellies full and smiles on our faces. Definitely worth a visit.
