Thanks to Claire; Paul;Linda and Allen for a lovely weekend. The "pub lunch" type menu was really good much more than expected. The service was great, better than expected from a "Inn" type guest house. The Travellers Rest felt like home away from home for the two nights we spent in Riebeeck Kasteel.

I heard that the Traveller's Rest was under new management so decided to call in and check it out. The only words I can use is wonderful and friendly. The restaurant serves 'pub grub' and from the comments from other people there it is some of the best around.
It is run by Paul, behind the bar, Linda in the kitchen and daughter Claire the guest house manageress.
The atmosphere was friendly, relaxed with good food.
I will certainly be returning again soon because I was informed they also do 'Sunday roast lunch'.

What a pity this place is no longer open to the public - evidently now only available for private functions but I am not sure about the guesthouse.
I have such good memories of the times I spent here - excellent food and a tastefully refined atmosphere. This is really a great loss to Riebeek Kasteel.

Thank 173EnjoyLife

We arrived and were directed to a well prepared table in a well air-conditioned lounge. Service was outstanding from the start. A wide variety of wines made selection easy for the different pallets. The menu displayed a spread of different choices and combinations of the best food imaginable. Service from the kitchen was quick and the food was well prepared and presented. Needless to say, conversation died down as everybody enjoyed their different meals. Continuous service request from the staff assisted those with special needs. Overall, the evening was enjoyed by all and praises to the owners and staff of a well-established and managed restaurant. I will highly recommend this Guest House and restaurant.
