Arrived 1.5 hours late, in a mad rush, but as I had kept them updated as to our delays, there was no issue. Was able to spend the evening enjoying great food and great company!

We purchased vouchers to go to the restaurant and was a bit skeptical about what we will receive. Our voucher included a soup starter and then the main meal was the Cape Country Sampler. Our waiter André was as friendly and helpful as can be and offered really excellent service - very professional! Drinks prices are very reasonable and extensive variety.

BUT THE FOOD! WOW, were we Impressed! The soup was so creamy and tasty and the Cape Country sampler even more impressive. I tried Tomato Bredie, Chicken Pie and Lamb curry. All 3 were divine! I also had a taste of the Bobotie which was just as well done as the other foods.
I will definitely return. Thank you Volkskombuis for treating/serving us exactly the same as those who paid full price. Keep up the amazing food and friendly service. See you again soon!

We were recommended by the front desk staff at two hotels and just happened to arrive there at the same time as some friends from home were arriving with their friend: a professor from the local university, so we new we had made the right choice.

The food was as other reviewers have described it. hearty fare from the Karoo farm land. The drinks were perfect and the atmosphere is wonderful. You can feel the history, smell the history and taste the history.

A very good choice for any traveller to visit.
