Lots of nice rooms - we were lucky to be able to eat in the garden. Good menu and wine list. We tried the ostrich which was ok but not amazing

We dined here when we stayed in Oudtshoorn the food was good but we had to wait for over an hour for our meal. We did say to a server about this and he was quite rude and never even apologised for the delay. Really put a dampner on the evening. Would not recommend

We have visited South Africa a number of times and are consistently impressed with the food, However, at Jemima's, I would say that it's probably the worst meal we've eaten there. I ordered the salmon trout salad. The dressing was OK but the oil tasted really cheap and there was so much of it that the spinach was totally saturated... More

We booked this restaurant as some people recommended it to us as fine dining. Jemimas did not disappoint. Great welcome and we had 2 waitresses serve us. One might be training but both were full of smiles which is wonderful. We had ostrich and beef - both succulent and delicious. My DH had the two plus kudu which he said... More

Previous reviews once again proved to be accurate here. There was a lot of promising rhetoric from exuberant waiting on staff but unfortunately this wasn't backed up by the kitchen. We had to wait 30 mins for the order to be taken, and then waited an hour for our meal to arrive, and it wasn't overly busy, and most tables... More

Average. Unfortunately the kudu fillet was near as makes no difference to beef. An additional portion was offered but again, there was no discernable game flavour or texture. This was highlighted in stark contrast with a kudu dish at another restaurant the following evening. The lamb shank was enjoyable and the service attentive. There's a wide variety of wine available,... More

The food was OK, but the service was pretty poor - loads of trainee staff but supervisors thin on the ground.
