The venue has always been amazing. The service is also excellent. Unfortunately, the food was nothing spectacular and the portion size of the quiche that I ordered (one of the special lunches of the day) was VERY small. The side salad is also not much of a salad. I think it is a bit much for R84? I was still hungry and had to order some dessert to fill me up (apple pie, which was sublime).

Overall satisfactory, but would be happy to try other restaurants when we pass through Swellendam again.

A lovely shady spot for lunch - lots of tables dotted around under a plethora of trees, with some on a terrace above a river (which admittedly was more of a trickle yesterday). Quite an extensive menu, with very friendly service which was also particularly swift. The food was very good, and we'd happily return here if passing through Swellendam again.

Great service... Ambience! Lots of locals using this venue as a 1/2 house between Cape Town & Port Elizabeth.

Food is ok. Nothing extraordinary really but a great place to unwind...

A nice restaurant situated by the small river. The burger was ok. Friendly staff. A small shop in the restaurant.
