We (me and my girlfriend) had a great time at this restaurant two nights in a row. The food is fresh, tastefull and made with love. The first night we had the fillet and spare ribs and the second night I chose the ribs again and my girlfriend took the bobboti. All dishes were very delicious and full of taste.... More

We had a great evening at Rosemarys. They have a varied menu, lovely fresh home-made locally sourced food and it was delicious. The service was perfect, we could relax and enjoy dinner, no rush and we were very well-looked after. Thank you for a lovely evening

The host makes apart from the good food the difference. Super friendly, personal touch, taking the time, making sure you are completely satisfied and go home with a very pleasant evening in the pocket and good tasty menu in the stomach. Definitely worth a stop passing Gansbaai.

This was our second visit to Thyme at Rosemary's. On a cold evening we enjoyed the fire and hearty soup and oxtail. Keith must be the most competent manager/maitre'd/waiter. Thank you for a nice evening

I'm visiting Gansbaai to dive with sharks. The owner of Saxon Lodge recommended me Rosemary's. What a wonderful dinner! Marvelous food and excellent service. It was amazing to taste the Boboti and find similarities between gastronomy in South Africa and Brazil. Thank you so much for the experience.

We loved it so much we ate dinner at Rosemary's two nights in a row. Make a reservation for 6:30 so you can pick your table by the fire (winter or after shark diving). Between the two evenings we had the veg soup, seafood saffron soup, pan fried Hake (catch of the day), butternut squash salad, lamb curry, creme brûlée... More
