This was our third trip to South Africa and to Swellendam. Each time we have made a point of eating at The Connection. Ollie and Jenny, the owners, make us feel so welcome. The food is excellent, and the atmosphere is friendly and relaxed. We highly recommend this restaurant. Chris & Bill, Barbados

Staying in the African Shades guesthouse accross the street we were happy to have our dinner-evening here. No menu, but the plates with meat and the soup was great.
The atmosphere is very warm and we enjoyed it all the way

Located close to the center of Swellendam, it's a small, simple and nice restaurant.
There's a set menu and it's very good. Start with a delicius soup, three different type of meat cooked in different way and the dessert, all with wine. Absolutely not expensive.

No surprises. A nice meal if you like lots of meat. Not enough fresh vegetable for me personally.
As a local, I don't go to often as there is no variety

The butternut soup was delicious and tasty. The beef dish was a scrummy dish. Would go back. The staff were good.
