As I visit Bredasdorp once or twicw a year, it always a pleasure to visit Julians. The staff is friendly and helpful. There is so much to choose from, that it is a good thing I don't visit so often.

Apparently it is THE place to eat in Bredasdorp. But then, let’s face it, one isn’t exactly spoilt for choice. Julian’s does have a few things going for it: it’s located in a rather attractive setting (around a courtyard, and attached to an art gallery, pieces from which are displayed on the walls). Also, there are some nice touches: a... More

Julians was recommended by the manager of Firlane House where we stayed. We had dinner there 2 nights in a row, and were never disappointed. There is a choice of "Light/easy meals" as well as more elaborate dishes, that were all very tasty ! The restaurant also has a shop where they sell pottery and other souvenirs.

I ordered a steak and prawn meal, steak was raw and not medium which is what I Ordered, the prawns were covered in way to much batter as were the onion rings which I actually though we're Calamari they had so much batter. The service was good, friendly and efficient. The place is pretty and a surprise for a place... More

I love discovering under-stated restaurants like this one! The menu is very extensive, and you do not expect the food to be prepared and presented so well. The homemade bread they bring out for the table is divine. We had the prawn and cous cous starter (highly recommend it). Mains meals are very flavourful, but in my opinion the portions... More

Took clients for dinner. Everyone's meal was exceptional. I had a medium rare rump with a red wine reduction sauce. Side dishes of butternut and chips were perfect. Desert was as good. Wine list supports local wineries but choice could be expanded to other regions. Good ambiance and service.

Must be the best restaurant in 50km radius. Will be back again and again to explore the full menu. Ambiance perfectly cozy with artistic flair and pottery collection.

"Restaurant / Objets d'Art / Ceramics" indicates you're in for a crafty time! This is a restaurant on purpose - not pushed into odd rooms in an old house (like several other local eateries). You sit between a wall full of assorted paintings (for sale) and an enclosed gravel garden with tables of succulents and bansai miniature trees. Wrought-iron chairs... More
