“Beautiful setting, food ok”
Reviewed July 2, 2013

Setting is lovely and its a great place for an afternoon drink. However, the food was only ok. Maybe it was my mistake for trying to order chicken curry in the Kalahari, should have probably gone for steak!

“A very good restaurant in the Kalahari”
Reviewed June 26, 2013

The Albatros Restaurant is situated on the outskirts of Kathu, in the Northern Cape, inside the Kalahari golf Estate.

Although the restaurant is housed in a new and modern building, it fits in reasonably well with the surrounding Camel thorn forest and golf course. The interior is modern, yet warm and welcoming. there are normal tables with chairs, as well as upholstered booths, which are scattered through the interior at various levels. There are also a couple of tables outside, but these are best used in summer or midday in winters, as it gets chilly in the evenings in Kathu.

The selection on the menu is good, with starters, mains and some nice desserts. (Try the chocolate mousse with ice cream... my wife's favourite). The pizza's are also good, and the steak is really good. Off course mutton is the staple of this area, so you won't go wrong there.

The prices are very reasonable, taking into account the quality of food and the setting.

There is also a fully stocked bar on the premises.

In all, I was pleasantly surprised by this establishment, and have visited it a couple of times, and will continue to do so.
