Good starters, springbok carpaccio, lovely mains - Malay-style chicken curry and steak....local wines were very good....and all at a reasonable price. A very enjoyable evening.

Great Steaks. We went to Koornlands on a wintery Sunday evening, expecting to be the only guests, but found the restaurant three quarters full. The service was prompt and friendly. A warm homely ambience was complimented by the friendly owners. Our T Bone steaks and chicken curry were excellent. We recommend this restaurant without reservation.

This is a truly amazing restaurant. The menus offered a huge variety of South African game dishes mixed with more traditional fare. The Warthog starter was delicious and the Malay chicken curry was warm, spicy and fresh. The chef managed to give my wife a milder version which was equally delicious and flavoursome. The desserts were wonderful. Our friends had the more unusual crocodile followed by the springbok. Both were superbly prepared. All in all this was a wonderful gastronomic experience and one which will stay in our memories for some while.

The menu had some novel twist on traditional Cape dishes such as Crocodile Sashimi which we weren't quite brave enough to try but we did try the Warthog Sammosas which were surprisingly tender and creamy. Not surprising as it was slow cooked all day. Our mains was undoubtedly well prepared and made form quality ingredients but lacked that "wow" factor in terms of taste so unfortunately our final bill was not justified. We have had much better value in most restaurants in our hometown of Stellenbosch which is also a tourist destination. The service was above par for SA restaurants. Our first choice for Swellendam restaurants was La Sosta but they were still closed for renovations. Field & Fork apparently is another good option in Swellendam - we may try one of those two next time.
