“Dinner with friends”
Reviewed October 20, 2012

We had heard a lot about Jemimas, and I guess, if honest, we're not blown away as we had hoped we would be.

We took friends from town to dinner there. We only ate a main course, mine was delicious, (confit of duck on risotto), but my husband had the trio of meats. Apparently they were nearly in discernible from each other, cooked medium rare, but strangely tough, disappointed.

Having said that, our friends were very happy with their meals.

“Exceptional dining experience”
Reviewed October 9, 2012 via mobile

We went to Kalinka the night before which was 5 out of 5 but were not expecting it to be bettered, but it was at Jemimas! The combination of foods they put together was outstanding and the service was impeccable. A real joy to go to and a repeat visit a must next visit to Oudtshoorn.

“Yammie!!!”
Reviewed October 3, 2012

When we drove out to find a restaurant we were looking for an Italian restaurant, luckely we could not find it and ended up at Jemima's. In September it was still cold in the evenings and inside they had a fire on which was really nice. The food was excelent, very well and good prepared and very nice decorated on the plate.
Ofcourse we ate ostrich, but keep some space for desert as they are great.

The food, ambiance, service was out of this world! Lovely old farmhouse with roaring fires. we dined in September, bit sat ouside under a gas heater, which kept us nice and cosy. Food was just great. Highly recommended.
