“One of the poorest meals we have had in South Africa.”
Reviewed January 30, 2013

This restaurant offers tapas and Mexican type food. Four of us visited recently and were extremely disappointed with the very poor service and food. We visited on a Thursday evening, and it may have been that the management were absent, but even so, there was no excuse for having things on the menu that were not available, for not telling us that parts of a dish were not available (ie fish accompanied by the tartar sauce was brought and we were then told that there was no tartar sauce left). From that, we surmised that probably the restaurant did not make their own sauces, My Quescadilla was okay but accompanied by a bottled salsa, and the wine we ordered (a Cabinet Sauvignon) was really too hot to be served. It was when the desserts were brought that we realised what a poor place this was. Four of us ordered puddings at the same time; two puddings were brought. We were then told that the banana pudding was not available and that the Malva pudding was burnt, and that this was the last one in stock. However, they did find another Malva pudding, which they brought, with a horrible burnt and curdled custard. It was disgusting, and after one mouth full, my husband left it. White River is a small town, with some good restaurants, and we were with local residents. They were highly embarrassed at the standard of the meal we were served. Having had some delicious food at other restaurants in the vicinity, this was a huge disappointment, and I would recommend that this restaurant is avoided until the problems it seems to have with serving and catering are sorted.

“A nice meal”
Reviewed January 27, 2013

Gaskop is not a big place so there are not a lot of options. This was the best of them I think. The meal was fine if not memorable and the service was good. The prices were also affordable.
