Sadly this small town lacks decent restaurants. Forced to dine here as nothing better was open. After entering, it seemed promising... Until... My husband and I are in the "food game"...well travelled, refined palette, restaurant owners and chefs, call it what may... But the lack of managerial interest was appalling. After waiting for ages for our first course (restaurant wasn't... More

Passing through Bredasdorp on the way to Arniston for the week end - had heard about Julians and decided to stop for lunch. Great decision. The restaurant is situated behind a ceramics shop with a beautiful garden between the two dining areas - one smoking and the other non-smoking. The restaurant has an extensive menu and wine list (don't think... More

Great place to have cake and coffee. They also have a really nice ceramics gallery with unique peaces. Well worth a visit if you are in the area.

The area between the two different dining rooms is the bar and "designated smoking area". The problem is that it open to the dining areas without any ventilation. So you are breathing in cigarette and cigar... More

Nice location. You enter via an deco shop. I got there the best meat that I have ever tasted in South Africa during our trip. The filet! My wife's salad was also delicious. Congrats to the chef!

A restaurant that should be on every visitors list. Fine dining with very well prepared and exotic food but also the "normal " stuff but very well prepared. A wonderful gift shop with gifts that is handmade on site and exported throughout the world (sure to find something to your taste) from dinner sets to table ware and -linen. Caters... More
