I never make time to write reviews on restaurants but The Rambling Rose is not just a restaurant. The owners Sergio and his Fiancé (the chef) have now on 2 occasions given us the most amazing service and food. The beers were just right temperature; in fact any colder would have been frozen. After lunch Sergio took us for a walk and showed my daughter the lambs, sheep, and his vegetable garden. My 4 year old was amazed that all the Veggies she ate the day came from Sergio’s Garden. When we left Sergio graced us with a nice big pumpkin to take home and some figs. My daughter threw her last 2 rand into the wishing well and made a wish.
Next time you drive through Montugu do yourself a favour stop at The Rambling Rose!!!!

We stopped of for lunch at The Rambling Rose and were blown away by the delicious food, and friendly, very helpful staff. Service was impeccable as was the food. The atmosphere was peaceful and tranquil yet beautiful. I definetly recommend this restaurant if you in Montagu for a wide variety of home-made products and fantastic mouth watering food.

Absolutley delightful. The owners are brimming with passion for the food they serve here.

We were lucky enough to persuade the owner into letting us eat with them on one of their monthly special events - mostly for locals - unfortunately we could not try the paella but were able to order anything from their standard lunch menu. My wife is a vegetarian and couldn't praise the food enough. I had the meat lasagne which was gorgeous. The service was also brilliant. We bought some of their home made pesto and had this back in the UK - it was better than any we have tried in Italy.

Try it for yourself...you will not be disappointed.
