The ambience is more than nice, the waiter lives his job and the food is awesome. Simply a must-visit-restaurant.

“Give him a chance”
Reviewed January 27, 2014

It’s true: The food could be better. But the place is cute and the service friendly.
Give him a chance and tell him what he could do better.
Rome wasn’t built in a day either.

“Certainly not a place for Foreigners !”
Reviewed January 27, 2014

If 17 people enter a restaurant and after 2/12 hours later only 7 of these 17 get their food …..WHAT IS IT CALLED? I know ……..THE FLAMING OSTRICH.
If you ever in Oudtshoorn , do not waste your time to go inside, you will certainly REGRET IT
The Flaming Ostrich Policy is simple ……LOCALS COME FIRST anyone from ANYWHERE will have to wait their turn.
This was about the only question the male owner asked us, I guess this is how they decide who will eat first.
If you ask me how the food was ….I cannot remember since I was eating it bite for bite not to enjoy the moment but rather because I had to push time in the hope that the others food will arrive shortly.
Trust the locals will keep them in business because we from the other side of town definitely won’t.

Reviewed December 17, 2013 via mobile

We've been on the road now for 13 days to 9 different town's and by far this has been the best meal we've had!!! The service was friendly and the food fantastic!!! I usually don't finish my meal but today I didn't leave a morsel on the plate, you could roll me out of there. Definitely a stop to make infact were going back tomorrow!!! :)
