This is a good place to try Karoo cooking. Clarke's has a varied menu beyond the much publicized Karoo Oysters. During the winter hours are reduced so plan accordingly

We've stopped for lunch when driving the amazing Route 62. We've had the lamb burger and lamb curry. Both were very tasty. Just go there. You can't go wrong.
