“Not sure about this one”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 6, 2012

We went on a Wednesday night so not exactly a busy day of the week and were for the majority of the evening the only 2 diners there. Julian himself sat smoking in an armchair by the bar and didn't even bother to say hello or welcome - despite us being the only people there. The food was good but not exceptionally good and again, the service was bad. A bit uncalled for. There's a lovely cat who added a bit of atmosphere to the evening! Maybe on a busier evening there would be more buzz. There's a very good shop that sells all his arts and crafts which is worth a visit.

“Wonderful dining experience!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 1, 2011

We had a lovely saturday lunch, I had the 4 cheese ciabatta, what a weird and wonderful combination of cheese, figs and chilli aoili. My husband had a crumbed calamari steak stuffed with salmon and mozzarella, drenched in a chardonnay and poppy seed sauce, once again a combination that surprised and delighted the taste buds! The service was friendly and efficient and although its not the cheapest restaurant it is worth every penny (and that's coming from an accountant!). We will definitely return and can recommend it to anyone with an adventurous appetite.

“Excellent setting, great food & service”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 20, 2011

Went for lunch with my partner recently. I had the rump steak and she had avocado & Salmon pancake salad. No starters on the menu but we were ready for the mains anyway. We sat outside at the front and it was delightful. Inside is so clean and quirky, the music was very good as well. Food came in good time and was very tasty. My steak was very good. I've had better at some fancy restaurants, but I can't fault this place. We had 2 mains and 2 non alcoholic drinks and it was about 200 Rand all in so very good value into the bargain. Would definitely recommend, and will definitely go again.

“The very best”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 5, 2010

Had a meal at Julians on recommendation from our B&B owner in Bredasdorp. It was perfect. The food, choice, price, service, ambiance everything was top notch. I would recommend anyone who is staying in or near the Bredasdorp region to give it a try.

“Lunch...on many plates, bowls, cups and other assorted dishes!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 22, 2009

This is an unexpected find...at the back of the huge ceramics showcase in the centre of Bredasdorp. The 'warehouse' is huge and filled with beautiful selections of ceramics, mostly all made in the back of the premises - great quality as well!
Anwyay, to the restaurant... a nice tranquil spot for lunch - good selection on the menu...though not the cheapest, generally the quality pretty good. Service a bit variable...not sure how they'd cope with a deluge of customers all at one though...
Would certainly recommend, either before you browse the wonderful selection of ceramics...or afterwards!
