“What a celebration!”
Reviewed May 5, 2013 via mobile

I arranged a celebration dinner with 17 friends to celebrate the 50th birthdays of 7 of these friends, during the course of the year. Bryan and Stephan was so accommodating with all the arrangements. The evening was a huge success. The atmosphere was great, everybody thoroughly enjoyed their meals. Al, our waiter was brilliant! Definitely recommended.

“Very unique!”
Reviewed May 2, 2013

We stopped in at Mrs Simpsons for a light lunch before making our way to our holiday destination, and were delightfully surprised. Upon arrival, we were warmly greeted, and a bowl of water was provided for our two little dogs. Our food was very hearty, and very filling (the portions are very generous), and the blueberry apple crumble is to die for! The decor is very unique (the restuarant is kitted out with rows of shoes, and everything is bright orange), and the owners are just as unique, and absolutely lovely. We will definately visit Mrs Simpsons again.

“Grossly overrated”
Reviewed April 26, 2013

We decided to take a break from Egoli and have a restful weekend at Dullstroom's Rose Cottage.

My girlfriend had the lamb shank and I had the Malay Oxtail. Both choices were disappointing for the lack of flavour. They need a chef in the kitchen and not just a cook. We wondered whether the cook tastes the food daily to get a sense of the flavour. Probably not.

The Italian chocolate cake and ice cream was nothing to write home about.

The wine selection was large, but few well known labels.

The table service was simply too fast. As this type if resto one wants to relax and not feel rushed. We had an apéritif and were half way through it when the main course arrived. When we ordered dessert it was there eithin two minutes. Ditto for the cappuccino afterwards.

I woukd describe it as boarding house food at resto prices. Dinner was R550 without having an entrée. We might go back there but not in a hurry.
