“Tredici - an ABSOLUTE must stop oasis along the N2 by Swellendam”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 3, 2013 via mobile

What a fabulous gem!!! Italy can now be found along the N2 by Swellendam, no need to even get on a plane!

Tredici is an absolute treasure - the aroma of freshly ground coffee invites you into this beautiful shop filled with delectable eats and treats. The food can be classed as plates full of taste sensations with something for every palate. The oozy hot chocolate is any chocoholic's fantasy come true.

The owner, NC Bekker, adds extra sparkle to the already beautiful surroundings and always makes time to chat to his clientele, some who make an effort to get a regular kick from the fabulousness! I cannot wait for winter to see the fireplace in action.

Apart from all this all round prettiness you walk into the bathrooms to find you've just moved into a 5 star boutique hotel, with embroidered hand towels and designer Charlotte Rhys smellies.

Its a bug WOW from us who will NEVER drive past without stopping. You will kick yourself if you don't pop in and take advantage of all Tredici has to offer, within easy reach from Cape Town even if you have to just go for a little Italian fix!

DELIZIOSO!!!

“Outstanding!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 20, 2013

We had lunch there passing Swellendam on a recent trip. What a pleasant experience. Fast efficient service, beautiful setting and outstanding food. I had the chicken foldover witch was served with salad and chips and my wife had the green fig pizza. Both dishes were brilliant!
If you enjoy good simple tasty food, then you should stop at Tredici.

“Perfect for lunch....”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 17, 2013

We were driving on the N2 from Cape Town to Mossel Bay, a 390 km journey. Swellenham is just over half way. We stopped for lunch at Tredici - it's a modern but stylish building with agreat view just off the N2, for a quickish lunch. The experience was first class - my wife had a wonderful salad, and I had a delicious thin crust pizza. Prices were reasonable, and service was warm, friendly and attentive, without going over the top. I'd definitely recommend for a lunch stop off.

“A disapppoiting slump in standards”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 2, 2013

I've been here three times now. Twice when it opened, when the standards were sky high, and recently. Those standards of excellent raw materials, calm efficient service and good decor have disappeared. Well, the decor's still good and it's clean and airy.
But the basic food standards have plummeted. Burgers that used (I guess) i be hand made are now seem to be bought in. Whatever...they're underseasoned,and compressed and just ordinary. Overpriced wine. Bought-in hard chps.

Not good enough.

Loo it;s a giid sto on ten eay bewe nn George and Cape Gown, but thin of it as a KFC. Restauarant....it ain't.
