We happened to be visiting McGregor on a day when all the other restaurants were closed and when I heard the word "Karoo" my initial reaction was that it would be a typically bland affair with a menu consisting of lamb chops, steaks, and bobotie, etc. Was I in for a surprise - I can't remember all that we had, but it was all great, as was the service.

Karoux is a hidden gem in the heart of the sleepy town of MacGregor. The husband and wife team run this restaurant efficiently and with an obvious passion for good food and wine. We had the twice baked, 3 month matured Gruyere cheese soufflé followed by the Springbok and Risotto with broccolini. Both were delicious and well prepared. I highly recommend this restaurant.

Dear Beverly

Thank you for your wonderful feedback on Karoux, we are so glad hear that you had a wonderful time with us and enjoyed the experience immensely. The soufflé is an absolute must try and my favourite as well, the springbok was from a near by butcher and the broccolini from a farm here in McGregor picked fresh. We hope you will visit us again soon when next in the area.

Kind Regards,
Aimée and Ryan

When booking my honeymoon accommodation, the owner of the cottage insisted I try Karoux Restaurant. I agreed that she could go ahead and book a table for us, not knowing what to expect. Her recommendation did not disappoint!

The cosy and warm atmosphere set the tone for what turned out to be a meal we will not soon forget. Our only problem is that we will likely struggle to find a food that comes close!

Thank you Ryan and Aimee for creating such a great atmosphere. It was the perfect spot for a special evening!
