“Superb”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 5, 2013

A favourite place to stop for breakfast, lunch, dinner or in between snack! The Olive Terrace is a popular place meeting place and we were a group of friends with time just for a quick, light lunch. The toasted sandwiches were delicious and accompanied with fresh salad. Pity we were in a rush, as we were all tempted to carry on sitting in the winter sunshine while being looked after so well! thank you we will be back!

“Stunning food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 2, 2013

We had dinner there on the Friday we arrived and then breakfast on the Saturday and Sunday. All our meals were well presented and extremely tasty. The prices of the food and especially the wine was very reasonable too. It was a cold winter's weekend and they had 2 cozy fireplaces. I can definitely recommend this restaurant and we will be back.

Dear Anneke

Many thanks for finding the time to write your kind review. I was very pleased to hear that you enjoyed the food and service, and that the wine was well priced. I feel that it is very important to provide the opportunity for visitors to Tulbagh to taste and enjoy the great local wines, and keeping the prices under control has an important part to play.
Kind regards

I was not disappointed by the meal that I had in this restaurant. The food is fresh, well presented and scrummy. Good value for money, The service courteous and attentive. The weather was cold and wet by the open fire created a warm and welcoming atmosphere.
