“Another jewel of the Karoo”
Reviewed August 23, 2014

This is one of my best restaurants I discovered lately. Quality and good selection complement the wine list. The perfect stopover not spoiled by coaches or mass tourism. Take your time, as everything is cooked fresh.

“AWESOME!!”
Reviewed August 18, 2014

Stopped in Barrydale en route to Strand back from week-end in George - had lunch at Clarke of the Karoo, what a gem!! Michael is a wonderful host, the food delectible, beautifully presented to enjoy while you drink in the beautiful view around you! Definitely worth a visit :-)
