Many times, I feel museums wring history to a pulp, dishing up platters of information that are lifeless and dull. But that's not the case at Evita se Perron; it really was a surprise to find that a major chunk of South African history was...More

Wonderful to visit again. Pieter-Dirks' humor is brilliant. I felt that there however a downgrade of the food served with the show.

Evita se Perron's place is a must! A great shop, Evita's garden "Boerassic Park" gives you a fabulous and humorous view to the past and modern South Africa. The restaurants have nice "no frills food" - and do not miss the super Darling Brew beer!

Quite a quaint little museum and restaurant. The collection of political memorabilia throughout the vast displays is incredible. It takes you right back to the pre-apartheid years and through to the current time. A South African icon and a must-see facility. The restaurant serves good...More
