“The best coffee we've had in SA”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 24, 2012

Lovely breakfast, great preperation. Excellent hosts, and very warm welcome. You've read it everywhere, but this time it's true!

But then... The coffee.... Two weeks we had had instant coffee of subpar brands, plunger coffee that you just did not get right. These guys make the best coffee in the garden route!!! I am not sure if i was legally allowed to drive after having two of these, they were that mind- excellent cookie to go with that.

And the mother's day gift hit it home with the mrs!

A great pick-me-up in the middle of our tour in south-africa. after the big five, the coffee in this place made it the big six!

5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 1, 2012 via mobile

Was terribly sick on honeymoon and arrived on a curry evening buffet. They went they extra mile to give me an A Le Carte menu and evn made the food less oily for my stomach. Seriously hav nt bin in such a situation and have also nt ever received such outstanding and accomodating service and friendliness!!! WOW!!! Thanks so much guys!!!
And my wife could nt get enough of the curry made interestingly different and flavour-some!!

“One of South Africa's finest!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 19, 2012

Had both dinner as well as breakfast at this supurb eatery. It's clear that the owners are really passionate about food...and it shows in every dish. From the home-made pasta to the fresh seafood dishes, each one just brilliant. The deserts are to-die-for. I highly recommend the mud pie or cheese cake. Neither will disappoint.

For breakfast...give an omelette a go. They all seem well worth it.

The owners Peter and Alma are great folks and welcome any comments from their guests. These guys really have a good thing going and I can't wait to go back.
