“Wonderful - time and time again”
Reviewed June 24, 2013

I love this restaurant. Sonya, the owner, always goes out of her way to make a person feel special and nothing is too much for her. You are guaranteed to ALWAYS have a great time, but more importantly, CONSISTENTLY have fantastic food. There is never a doubt in my mind where to make a booking when going out for a meal with my girlfriends, a date night with my husband, or take my out-of-town friends and family. Ye Olde Tavern has never disappointed! Well done to the Ye Olde Tavern Team.

“Good Homely Food”
Reviewed May 26, 2013

Ate here based on a recommendation of our hosts, not disappointed.

Quality of the food was great and price was incredible, but be wary the portions are enormous, i have a large appetite and couldnt finish the meals.

Highlights potato skins and malva pudding.

Definately worth a visit when in Montagu

“Pleasant evening”
Reviewed May 13, 2013

It was our first visit to Montagu and our hosts suggested us this restaurant. Very nice, small and quiet place, good wine and South African cuisine and a wonderful, helpful staff. Lovely furnishing in an old Cape Dutch style house. We enjoyed the meal and would visit the place again.
