Our grandchild was satisfied with her nuggets and chips but she had to share it with her granddad because he could not eat the salad he was served. The lettuce was days old and not edible. Service was ok and they apologised for the food and did not put it on the bill.

The food was really good! We had an extraordinary dish: crocodile meat. If you are in Oudtshoorn or vicinity make sure that you stop by at this place. Yes, it doesn't look like much, the interior is a bit old school and average and the service could be a bit faster. But it was worth the wait. I had ostrich... More

Unfortunately the place was empty with no atmosphere. The tea and muffins and scones were very nice.

Lovely air conditioned restaurant, no one in only us, which tells a story. The Lasagne was disgusting along with the garlic bread, no tomatoes or betchamel sauce in the Lasagne just lumpy meat and pasta... More

Their seafood pizza should make the headlines everywhere. We were the only people in there when we went but the place is clean and the food is delicious. I would definitely visit again.
