Lovely location, food - some good some bad, service friendly, but not the best. Our family was first to arrive and be seated, but two tables who arrived after us were served before us? It appeared as if they were regulars, perhaps family or friends of the owner. Didn't really appreciate that, not sure if we would return!

For a good steak or Club sandwich this is a good place to go. On a hot summers day it's lovely under the big old trees.

Ate here on two successive nights. The food was excellent on both evenings as was the service. The bonus at the end was the low bill - about half what we would pay in the UK. Recommended.

Thank you for your frank review.
We take all comment (both good and bad) very seriously and try to ensure our service and quality is of a very high standard. That said, we do slip up sometimes and that is why we like to hear from our guests. Unfortunately whilst you were here, you did not inform anyone of your complaint. We have two chefs on duty at all times and they make a point of checking that every table is happy and dealing with any issues that may arise. If your table had alerted us to your unhappiness we could have had the opportunity to make good. Unfortunately they did not and thus we are in the situation where you have posted a bad review but we were not afforded the opportunity to rectify the situation at the time.
If you could see your way to giving us a second chance, we would be thrilled to try again.

We came through Graaff-Reinet and made a stop over for one night. As we did'nt have a reservation, we got a small table inside. The restaurant itself was nice furnished with a good atmospere. At the coldstream restaurant we ate the best food ever in South Africa. The service was top and the food was delicious. We tried Greek salad and it tasted like being in Greece, fantastic. As main we ordered an ostrich fillet and the recommended dish with three different steaks (ostrich, springbok and beef), the meat was really medium as we ordered and it was delicious. It is very hard to get tasty "african" food in South Africa. As desert we took Tiramisu, but don't try it, it is not worth it (it's ok, but not like Tiramisu in Italy). In total I really recommend this restaurant, for South Africa it is a bit pricey, but the food is excellent.
