Good food at the restaurant. Great staff and a lovely garden. Excellent quiche and other treats from the deli, which we bought to take back to our self-catering cottage for breakfast the next day. They also sell nuts, honey, and dried figs and other goods in the shop.

The gas station attendant recommended the Rose of Karoo to us and we enjoyed a very nice light meal there. The owner is very helpful and has a delightful personality, and she has stocked her store with a wide variety of locally baked goods (both sweet and savoury), and gifts.

Wanted good quality home cooked food - found it in this very unassuming place from the outside - cool evening and there was a real fire! Evening menu limited but if you want more choices you can go across the road. It is neat and clean - personally I find the bright lights for the evening meal very off putting!... More

We found this place on a recommendation, and were pleasantly surprised. The place is very unassuming, cosy, neat and clean. It is exceptionally cheap, and obviously really value for money. The people were wonderful, welcoming and friendly, and went out of their way to accommodate us. The food is home made and absolutely delicious, we left there with a whole... More
