“Always a good place to go, no matter at which time of the day”
Reviewed November 10, 2013

Polka is a really lovely place to go and eat out at night or just relax and drink a good cup of coffee.
They offer a huge range of cakes and sweets and the afternoon/evening menues are varied. Prices were average and definitely not too high. Dinner was great, the Bobotie is simply amazing! The desserts varied a bit, but all in all we were really satisfied. Coffee and snacks (salads and burgers) were delicious. The place itself is really lovely with a huge garden area and a well-furnished interior.
Definitely the place to eat in Graaf-Reinet!

“Beautifully decorated restaurant in the heart of Graaff Reinett”
Reviewed November 9, 2013 via mobile

We went a Friday evening and the place was very busy - probably best to reserve in advance! My friend had a bobotie which was delicious and I had a chicken pizza which was good but maybe slightly too dry.
The interior is very nicely decorated and the service was friendly and efficient.

“Exceptional service”
Reviewed November 5, 2013

For those who feel service in SA restaurants is diminishing you must visit Polkas. We have just returned from our first visit to this restaurant and have to let everyone know that Moses must be one of the best waiters we have been ever been served by. He was attentive, had a lovely voice and smile and had such a friendly demeanour. The menu was varied and the prices were good. Sadly though we have mixed reviews when it comes to the food. I had pork belly: the meat was cooked perfectly but the crackling was not crisp at all. My husband had half a chicken but sadly had to report that his veggies were on the cold side and the chicken was a bit dry. However, we will return as the service and ambience was perfect. Maybe next time we will be luckier with our choice of food.

Just when you think you have eaten the worlds best lamb shank, you discover it could be even better. We just had to go back the next evening.
