Our waitress was very pleasant, very smiley and kind. I am vegetarian and became very nervous when I reviewed the menu. I did not see anything vegetarian and almost asked our group of 6 to leave. However, I am glad I inquired if they would be able to accommodate me with a vegetarian dish. Without missing a beat, the waitress gladly described their (off the menu) extensive vegetarian platter. The best I have ever had. Please see photo. The rest of my group enjoyed their meals, including my husband who had lamb and my son who has a super tasty looking burger!

For the best local food, excellent service and a wonderful meal out do not miss out on this restaurant. Ask to meet Rosemary. She is an incredible and very talented lady.

Spent a wonderful weekend in Gansbaai with friends and couldn't wait to return to Thyme at Rosemary. I so love the charm and ambience of this precious and homely restaurant. The attention to detail is marvellous in the decor, kind of classy, country chic and also quite quirky.

We were fortunate enough to chat to Rosemary for a while and hear more of her interesting stories. The service was also great and her staff are like part of the family. Janna was especially attentive and a breath of fresh air.

Service is a little slow but so worth the wait and we all know that good food takes time to prepare. Also wonderful to sit outside at the back of the restaurant in the gorgeous and magical garden.

I so loved the sweet chilli chicken livers the last time and they were just as incredible this time around. The snoek blintzes (folded crepes) I made sure to devour this time! Yum I could eat them all day. Almost forgot the frikkadels... they were sublime! As mains we enjoyed a generous seafood platter and the oxtail.

Desserts we drooled over were the rhubarb and quince crumble and turkish delight cheesecake.



Are we back yet? : )
