“Fun place to make a good lunch stop”
Reviewed June 21, 2013

My wife and I were doing tour guide market research this week.

As our usual deli was closed , I followed some trip advisor recommendations on the main R 62

My venison stew was laced with red wine and served with rice and sweet potatoes.

Topped with a good coffee, I was entirely satisfied, as was my partner of 42 years with her bean and meat soup, which was served with a home made olive Ciabatta bread.

“Country fresh tra la lah”
Reviewed April 28, 2013

Wholesome, fresh, a lot of local home grown ingredients used in meals. Well prepared and generous portions, good service with a smile. Retail of local produce, jams, honey, biscuits and edibles. Relaxing atmosphere inside and outside. Genuine hospitality...generously shared by the owners.

“A pleasant lunch in the shade”
Reviewed April 10, 2013

We arrived at Barrydale late in the afternoon and hungry. We couldn't find anywhere to eat, but was recommended Jam Tart by the lady on reception at the Barrydale Karoo Hotel. It was a hot summers afternoon, but we got a nice table in the shade. We had a small lunch, but the food was very nice and good value. The young waitress was very helpful and friendly. Would definitely look in again if we're back on the Route 62.

“Dissapointed”
Reviewed April 1, 2013

The restaurant looks very enticing from the main road, however we were quite let down by the actual experience. The service was unfriendly and slow, the food nothing to rave about. We wouldn't recommend it.
