Been there a few times and not sure if Paddagang is under new management but not the same good tasty food as we used to eat here. Service is 5 star.

Service was excellent, we enjoy the food. But when you had to pay and want to use a card, they use an unfamiliar devices which does not work. They apologies but I had to drive and draw money to pay the bill. This was so disappointing that I will not use it again.

I visited this spot for lunch with my family with small kids. The food was delicious. I had the basket which consist of samoosas and meat balls. There is play area to keep the kids busy.

Many people remember the excellent Paddagang restaurant in Tulbagh from years ago. Our family recently visited this restaurant and was deeply dissapointed. They still use the Paddagang name but there is nothing left of the once prestigious place. No wines under the Paddagang name anymore. The menu is limited and the calamari strips for instance are almost inedible. The salads... More

I have been to this restaurant many years ago and it was so smart. One felt uplifted to dine in the grand rooms with white linen on the tables. I was so disappointed this time. It is as the people just placed tables and chairs inside and old building. There is absolutely no atmosphere, no effort to even try and... More

The New Paddagang restaurant opened this weekend in Tulbagh again!!! New exciting menu and new owners, but still the old building with the atmosphere we all longed for!!! I know in Summer picnics on the lawn and good food and good service will put this venue back on the map, can't wait to go back soon!!!

We visited Paddagang Restaurant in October 2015. It was the first time for my sister and cousin, and my 5th visit. Why do we go back ? It is unusual, friendly, and a haven for chirpy birds and peacocks. The food is delicious and different. The wine list has local wines for sale and competitive prices. We always make a... More

We were greeted by the lady chef on our arrival and shown to our table. Each of us ordered something different from the comprehensive menu and the food was hot, delicious and tastefully presented. We were pleased to re-visit this restaurant and to find the standard was still high especially as we brought visitors from Kwa-Zulu-Natal and were only in... More

Charming setting in courtyard. Staff very friendly, good menu with large wine list. Good for quick bite or lingering, and also very nice for large groups to enjoy.

This restaurant has been replaced by the rather pricey Belgian Kitchen but lacks the atmosphere of the old Paddagang . At 1300 we were the only people there on a wednesday which does not do it for us so after scanning the menu which comprised mid range fare but tending to fine dining prices we moved on.
