A vast menu, wonderful dishes, quaint atmosphere, friendly service: This was our best meal in South Africa! My curry lamb shank was scrumptious: tender meat and potatoes bursting with spicy/sweet flavors, presented with a side of white rice. We tried our first ostrich dishes: carpaccio,...More

We arrived quite late in the afternoon after an Ostrich Farm visit but the kitchen was still open and we could park our car right in front and eat in the garden. Lovely atmosphere and delightful food. Service was good and timely - there were...More

Great food and a lovely atmosphere outside in the garden area. Saxophonist played some lovely music with backing tracks. Service was excellent. Probably our favourite meal in South Africa over the 17 day holiday.

Our PE host already recommended this local restaurant and our host in Oudtshoorn did the same, so we tried it and were not disappointed. Nice atmosphere friendly service and good farm food. A must if you are in Oudtshoorn. Will come back

Good choice of tasty homemade food, we had various Ostrich dishes which were all very good, especially the Fillet. The restaurant was very busy and we had to wait a long time for our main course but the staff were all very pleasant .Excellant value

We had a wonderful time at Nostalgie. Great food and very warm atmosphere. Friendly staff as well. The only thing that concerned us was how management treated one of the waiters. You could clearly hear them having an argument inside the restaurant.
