          This very neat and tidy restaurant stay at the level year after year. Friendly staff and a good variety on the menu. Conveniently situated near to all the interested tourist attractions. Also have B&B avalable.

          My ratings say it all. A generous breakfast added into the price makes it one of the best priced establishments I have ever stayed in. I stayed over in a room impeccably clean, good linen, all in place.

          We passed by and stopped here spontaneously. Welcoming staff and tasty home cooked main meal. A few days later we made a point of coming back when passing again. Would recommend an overnight stay here based on our experience so far, we hadn't factored any...More

          On our way traveling from The Strand, Western Cape to Malgas with Dave & Kath Izzett. It was by accident we found this quaint BnB restaurant. I had the curry fish dish, I can't remember when last I'd such a delicious curry fish.

          Stopped in to have a quick breakfast on our way home and what a pleasure it was. Excellent service, excellent ambience and excellent Breakfast. African Shades is also a bed and breakfast and will be definitely on our overnight stay list.
