“Something different......”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 1, 2013

In an old house in Somerset Street Graaff-Reinet, we where lucky to find this ''funky'' and ''artsy'' restaurant !
We sat outside near the gallery. The menu had a couple of good choices. We wanted ''Roosterkoek", but they had none left. However, the ''Ambiance Breakfast'' my husband had and the ''Breakfast Salad'' I had, was great! I was surprised at the prices of their food, not expencive at all.
The staff was attentive and friendly. A morning and breakfast that we both enjoyed....

“EISH!”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 5, 2013

It is under a new name; “Ambiance”. The wine was cold, the curry nice but watch out for the serenade by the owners (and the load Chariots of Fire which was the only other music it seems). It is a perfect way to put any foreign visitor off what the Karoo is really about. I am sure us Saffers can do better.

“Need to get their act together”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 26, 2013 via mobile

Service started off well but went down hill fast. Main courses arrived but our starters had not come. The waitress said she would bring them but as we had got the main course we said to cancel the starters. I do not think she was pleased. Food was ok and was good value. We waited quite some time to have plates cleared and had to ask for desert menu. One of the party had desert but had to go and ask for it. The place was not busy but many people were waiting a long time for food. Music was not suited to easy dining. Would not return there.
