Dine alfresco on the veranda or the garden. We care about vegetarian and vegan preferences.

At a loss for somewhere to eat in Swellendam, our B&B suggested we try Koornlands. Their recommendation was spot on. We both had soup - a bean-and-ham concoction that was really delicious - and filling. She had Karroo lamb, four chops grilled to perfection, skewered on a porcupine quill, served with creamy mashed potatoes and some roast greens veggies, and I had venison meat balls with pasta and a great sauce that helped bring out the flavour of the venison. A few glasses of excellent house wine, and we had no room for the delectable-looking puddings. The service was great, and the waitress knew her job and kept us amused as well as served. All in all, a quality meal in an unexpected venue.

Koornlands have been running a special .. a 3-course set-menu meal for only R85 per person.

We took advantage of the offer one evening last week, and were delighted at the quality of the 3 courses we were served.

A soup starter, followed by a T-bone steak plus chips / salad main, plus a dessert.

Every course was very well presented, and delicious. The steak was a large portion, and had been cooked to order (med/rare). It was spot-on as we had ordered, and was very tender.

Altogether an absolute bargain.

The place is spacious with great service. the food is based on local ingredients like - Crocodile sashimi or Antilop carpaccio. All made in very high standards. Do not miss the cheese cake desert.
