“Great evening in Clarens”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 22, 2013

Excellent food, great ambiance, good service and friendly owners! What more can one ask for. We were a large group and they managed well. Steak was superb and the portions were more than generous. Some had oxtail which was also lovely.
Definitely recommend.

“very very good”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 22, 2013

This is one of the best restaurants we have dined at before. The owner went through a lot of trouble to accomodate our party of 8 at very short notice. The service is outstanding. The food is very very good and the wine list great and extensive. The curry and oxtail is great.

Had a great meal (oxtail stew for my wife and grilled lamb tjops on a bed of mash for myself) and the atmosphere is amazing. The best in Clarens.

“Wonderful Meal”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 7, 2013

We arrived at our B&B and asked the owner where is good to eat and this was his most adamant recommendation.

The resturant is "casual quaint" and the owners are very relaxed and welcoming. We didn't book but were lucky enough to get a table immediately. Three of us ordered various starters, mains and desert and we were not disappointed by ANYTHING. The food was glorious! Well done Clementines!!!
