“So good, we went back twice!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 25, 2013

Having accidentally stumbled into this Restaurant during our first trip to Pringle Bay we could not have been more surprised. Even though we didn’t make a booking (and later realised we most definitely should have), we were warmly greeted by the owners, Gary and Karen, and were lucky enough to get seated at the last remaining table up at the front. The décor is warm and eclectic –candlelit with vintage cutlery and napkins, luscious coloured wine glasses and Nina Simone lulling us into a warm cacophony of times gone by. The menu is simple, but cooked with love. We had pasta – the fresh gnocchi to die for, served steaming in a Le Crueset Pan, followed by a very decadent Knickerbokerglory with two spoons. The food and ambience was so good, we went back again, two days later after being tempted by the promise of woodfired pizzas at weekends. This, I can officially say, is some of the best pizza I have ever tasted. Carpaccio, Camembert and fig preserve… on the thinnest, lightest base you have ever laid eyes on. Gary and Karen, serve up a delightful, warm and friendly experience. Incredibly good value with a very ”sussed-out” wine list. Will definitely be back again next time we pass through!

“Visit Hanging Rock Kitchen and you will not be disappointed!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 15, 2013

The welcoming atmosphere, excellent food, and the eclectic decor make Hanging Rock Kitchen a regular stop for our family. While the menu is limited, there is plenty to choose from: the pizzas are fantastic (especially, in my opinion, the butternut and onion and the chicken and zucchini); there is a nice selection of pasta sauces, and homemade gnocchi when available; a tasty fish dish (you will be extra lucky if mashed potatoes are available when you visit); and though I have not had the burger, it is a favorite of my daughter; and you won't want to miss the lovely salad. The desserts are, in a word, "YUM!" Pair all that with a nice wine selection and you have yourself a lovely evening!

“Home style ambience and exquisite food!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 13, 2013

This restaurant offers residence and holiday makers a relaxed, home style ambience with high quality feel-good food. Everything tastes fresh and richly delicious, you can feel that love has been put onto your plate. The atmosphere is unlike any other restaurant I've been to, because of it's intimate, small space you feel like you are at a rustic, yet exquisitely catered for dinner party and the attentive hosts make you feel special and at ease, nothing is too much hassle. The menu has a variety of pastas, pizzas, a few fish dishes and a Italian-stallion burger. There is just enough to choose from but not too much that it overwhelms you. The pizza's are the best I have ever had and that's saying a lot coming from a big pizza fan. The decor is eccentric and tasteful and there are even prints from local artists and photographers for purchase. To top off an already delightful evening, the deserts are to die for and the coffee fresh and of a very high quality. I would highly recommend HRK restaurant to any local or holiday maker in the area, otherwise it is worth the drive from Cape Town or surrounds for a weekend lunch! Delicious food, great atmosphere and delightful hosts, what more could you want from an eat-out! Simply sublime!

“Great atmosphere and food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 11, 2013

The standard of food around the Overberg area is of a high standard generally, but we were really impressed with not only the quality of meals, but more importantly service and atmosphere of this place.

Cool vintage deco, great staff - it became our go-to-place while we were in the area, and they always tried to accommodate us even when they were full [ which was most nights ].........

btw,order the pizza's, they sublime :)
