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

The best restaurant which we visited in Gansbaai. Lovely atmosphere with antique furniture, perfect place settings, superb service and great food. My friend had oxtail and I had duck breasts - perfect. The preparation of the accompanying vegetables were outstanding.

The ribs at Rosemarys is to die for! And it's not only the ribs that are awesome, food and service is really great. The restaurant is so nice and cosy, no matter winter or summer. Visit Gansbaai and a dinner at Rosemarys is a must!

A group of five of us were recommended by the owner of the Roundhouse B&B, which I highly recommend as well by the way, and we were not disappointed at all. The atmosphere is very Olde Worlde, there are antiques everywhere and the walls are clad in oak, there is a real fire in one area and the tables and... More

We had a braai. I had an urge for Creme Brulee. Phoned a couple of restaurants. Only one left at Rosemary's. They kept it for me, the rest of my guests had Sago pudding, baked cheesecake and a double Don Pedro. Absolutely great waitering, great food with attention to detail. The photo's speak for itself.

We were 6 people for lunch and it was a mouth watering taste sensation. We sat outside in the tranquil garden and enjoyed every minute . Rosemary is an absolute darling and perfect host.

There is only one word to describe the food we had and that is deliciousness. We had the Oxtail and Duck breast and both were cooked to perfection, succulent and juicy. We had a seat right by the fireplace and once we were done eating we were in no hurry to leave. Thank you for the amazing food and service... More

This restaurant came highly recommended, and left us very happy. Nice and timely service, really good food, good suggestions for wine. Wanted to come back next evening, but got commandeered into a different place.
