“A good place to stop off at to gather your thoughts”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 26, 2014

This is a great place to stop at and enjoy a snack or cup of tea en-route to Bredasdorp or Cape Agulhas.

It is peaceful and I have seen a few travelling salesmen stop off here over the last few months - they pull in and catch up on their emails or calls in a quiet and friendly atmosphere, away from the busy road.

Free WiFi is now available here.

“A great breakfast spot”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 22, 2013

We had a lovely breakfast at the Red Windmill after a wild Saturday night in Napier. Half the table had French Toast and the others opting for the full Farmers fry up. The service was really friendly and the quality of the food was great ... Perfect eggs, crispy bacon and strong coffee.

“Exceptional Excellence”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 21, 2013

Recently my daughter wanted to get married and we had to find a venue for both the ceremony and the reception. Couldn't find anything as Napier is a very small place. Dee at the Red Windmill offered to help out as they had not had much experience with a large function and said she could do with the practice.

THAT was nonsense; the entire affair came off as if it was planned by experts with decades of experience.

My entire family still cannot believe the fantastic event, all arranged and hosted by Dee and Neal.

So, thank you to Dee, Neal and all the hard-working staff at The Red Windmill in Napier for an incredible afternoon and evening, beautifully planned and expertly executed.

“Great place to take your kids to lunch”

While you have great food there is plenty to keep busy kiddies out of your hair to enjoy your meal. Best food, best cakes & deserts warm and friendly service
