I did not eat at Paddagang, but, they offer reasonable bar food. They do however, offer an excellent variety of Danish beers and are very enthusiastic and informative about the beers. I would definitely recommend the beer experience and the comfortable lawn for a relaxed and pleasant afternoon.

Me and my wife had a cup of cuppachino each. The worst I've ever tasted. We wanted to lunch there as well, but did not want to take the chance after that coffee.

Had an early lunch, very relaxed. Had the surf and turf burger, which was adequate. I'd say this restaurant is pleasant mainly for the surrounds but the food didn't knock my socks off with originality. Bun for the burger was a bit stale, but we enjoyed the courtyard, and I loved seeing the peacocks wandering the grounds. So, if you're... More

We had a fantastic dinner at Paddagang (Belgium Kitchen) to celebrate a birthday. All four of us had the steak and it was perfectly prepared. The vegetables were delicious and the chips freshly made. We were seated close to the fireplace, which was really nice. The owner and the chef each checked to see if we were happy and the... More

A yum-yum lunch at Paddagang where we had the best pie in a long time! "Doen so voort!" Their 'flippenice' wine was just that: flippen nice! Good service and a lovely feel in the restaurant will bring us back.

A few minutes after we sat down the elderly owner noticed us and his first words were "Do you have a reservation?" which made us feel as though we had been caught gatecrashing a party. There are definitely politer ways of doing this - a greeting first might have been nice. Particularly since none of his staff had greeted us... More

Based on recommendations of locals we booked at Paddagang Restaurant during our stay in Tulbagh. A pretty waitress seated us on cheep plastic garden chairs and assisted us with choosing a lovely bottle of wine. Little did we know that this was to be the last enjoyment for the evening. There were only 3 tables at the restaurant yet our... More

The restaurant has closed and "The Belgian Kitchen" has taken over the site. I don't know why it closed, or any other details.
