I stayed nere for my first night of my twelveth trip to South Africa and was overall a nice experience. I had a nice room in a cottage with patio and a a sun deck for an affordable rate. I also ate here a good line fish. The host was a super friendly Dutch guy, always enthusiastic and talkative . Very nice breakfast outside in a gorgeous morning in a nice village on the West coast with a superb 16 mile long white beach.

I have a feeling that dining here is purely a matter of luck, you win some you lose some. Unfortunately, both times we ate here were a huge disappointment. I had written off the first experience as bad luck and decided to give them another go but sadly the second time was worst than the first. However, I have no doubt that they CAN produce nice meals, well cooked, but I was not destined to be the recipient of one of those! I think the chef tries to be too creative and this all fell spectacularly short on the occasions we were there. The ambience and decor is nice, very quirky and rustic. The food, for the area, is on the expensive side. This wouldn't have mattered if we had enjoyed it. However, perhaps we were just unlucky. As it is is such a nice interior, and the menu unusual, it is worth trying as your experience may well be the reverse of ours.
