We have been to Mrs Simpson a few times every year over the last ten years. We have never had a disappointing meal here. It speaks to the incredible level of professionalism and commitment to be able to always prepare excellent meals. My daughters are convinced this in the best restaurant in SA.

I just keep going back to this restaurant as nothing beat's the atmosphere and food. I got married last year in June 2015 and Brian and Steven made a lovely table for me. These two just become good friends as well. Dullstroom is NOT Dullstroom without Mrs Simpson's.

We finished our weekend in Dullstroom with Sunday lunch at Mrs. Simpsons. Very relaxed atmosphere and traditional food with no pretensions. Chicken pie and trout with fantastic hand cut chips. Both mains were tasty and well presented and down to earth compared to the fabulous prawns in phyllo to start. Service was exceptional, honest and friendly. Neighboring tables were on... More

We went for lunch on a Sunday, the food is ok, comparable to house food. I had the duck with mash which was cold and cranberry sauce which was sweet but didn't carry any flavor. The duck was ok. My husband's starter was nice but his mains also nothing worth talking about. Our waitress was pleasant and punctual. Interesting decor,... More

Hello Sanri, Thank you for taking the time to review your disappointing visit to our restaurant. Did you perhaps mention your cold duck to the pleasant waitress? This would have been rectified.The cranberry sauce is in actual fact a blueberry jus, as stated on the menu. Every week the decor, including the shoes, which we desensitise with a perfumed anti-bacterial... More

Mrs Simpson's is an absolute must when in Dullstroom. The food is consistently delicious, always flavourful, beautifully presented, hearty and the right balance between soul food and gourmet. The veggies that come as an accompaniment to dishes are noteworthy in their moreish yumminess! The dining experience is made even better by the quirky decor, beautifully detailed and unique in its...

Comfort food that fills the tummy coupled with great attentive service, unique decor and clearly a love for what they do. Book early if you want a spot and look out for Wallis the resident cat that rules the roost!
