Had a delicious mean at the historic Norden's. The service was excellent and the fillet steak exceptional. Definitely, for me, the best Restuarant in Grahamstown. Have eaten there over many years when in Grahamstown and they have kept up the quality.

The site has great historical significance. The Cock House was built on the land granted in 1826 to Benjamin Norden, a Jewish merchant and pioneer from London. He became one of Grahamstown's most prominent citizen's. Later he moved to Cape Town where he inaugurated the first Jewish congregation,

Some reviews talk of small portions and I thought it would be a case of quality over quantity but it wasn't. Main courses were very average considering their simplicity and carpaccio starter was buried in the salad. The apple and pear crumble dessert saved the meal. Service was friendly and quick.

The food was different and very good. We had friends who are very into their food with us and they loved it.
The building is lovely and the ambience is great. Its a little quiet but thats not a bad thing. There is a bar but we never had a drink in the bar first.
I look forward to going back.

Firstly, this place is not kiddie friendly. We found the portions small and not good value for money. My wife did not enjoy her lamb shank as it lacked flavour. I had a number of expensive starters as my main meal due to a limited menu.They do not offer a plate of chips and I am vegetarian. The kids did not enjoy their shared plates of smoked chicken pasta. Also they did not have Sprite or Creme soda cooldrinks in stock for the kids. Overall not worth the R400.00 bill and certainly not to be rated as the top restaurant in Grahamstown.Decor is dated and atmosphere stale.The service was adequate as best the two ladies left in charge could muster.

We had the venison carpaccio as a starter. This is something I quite enjoy and have had it all over the country. This was the best I've ever had. Everything was magnificently prepared. Great place to have a romantic dinner in Grahamstown.
