We were a small group and all were impressed with the quality of the food and very good service. Typical food of the region that is highly recommended and friendly staff. They were quite busy but service was punctual. We arrived at 10:00 on a...Sunday so we are not sure about the quality of service after 14:00 as claimed to be poor by some clients. Our experience was very good!!!More

Die Nedersetting came highly recommended by our host at the B&B we were staying at. I called to make a reservation at 4pm soon after arriving in Nieuwoudtville. I was greeted by one of the owners and I requested a table. Her response was that...I needed to call before 3pm to make a reservation (I checked the website afterwards and now where does it state this). I explained that we had just arrived and the recommendation was made by our B&B host. I was happy to not proceed with the reservation at this point but she still asked how many of us there are. It was just going to be my husband and I. I also mentioned that we are vegetarian (which should not have been a problem because their website says that their menu is vegetarian friendly). To this she said that it was going to be challenging to accommodate us and she would need to ask the chef. I could hear the annoyance in her voice while she was talking to the Chef and throughout my interaction with her. I eventually said to her that we will find another place to have dinner at because my interaction with her was becoming incredibly frustrating. I also told her that she shouldn’t advertise that their restaurant is vegetarian friendly if she couldn’t actually accommodate vegetarians, to which she said she will not do that. Very disappointing experience. We will not attempt to make a reservation on future trips to Nieuwoudtville. Kumeshnee and AshwinMore

We arrived just after 2pm to be informed staff had gone home already although their advertised times states 3pm. They had coffee and cake which were fine for us. We then sat down and nobody came to serve us . Finally we went to the...kitchen where the woman refused to answer us and just stared at us in a please go away fashion. I would be very scared to stay here if this is the way they act in high tourist seasonMore

We visited Nieuwoudtville and booked dinner at this restaurant. The buffet was a lovely surprise with delicious home cooked style beef, lamb and chicken, lots of vegetable and salad choices. For dessert one could have Malva pudding, fruitsalad, ice cream and custard. The staff were...very friendly and service was excellent. We sat next to the fire place and it was warm and cozy in contrast with the very cold weather outside.I hope to be back one day in future!More

The dinner comprised mainly of local dishes that were wholesome and well presented. A log fire helped to keep the winter chill away.

My mum and I had dinner at this restaurant during the flower season. We were lucky enough to get a table and enjoy the tasty and local food buffet that enable us to try different food and flavors. The waiters and everyone working here are...all very nice and welcoming. Highly recommended for a cozy dinner in this little town in the middle of the desertMore

Nieuwoudtville is probably my favourite village in South Africa, especially because of the flowers. There is a surprising amount to do and see and a better choice of places to eat that you would expect. This is definitely a must try if you are staying...in the village.More

We stayed here for one evening touring the west coast as a couple. We were very impressed with this establishment purely in the manner that we were received and welcomed. The room was just great and it had all that is required to be comfortable....We had dinner in the restaurant which was really an awesome meal. the atmosphere was truly cosy given that it was chilly outside. We certainly will visit here again and i can highly recommend a visit to this property if you are touring in the nearby area!More

We stayed at the rooidak huis and we were given a price on arrival and based on the price, ( that was inline with the other establishments)we accepted and stayed the night. We wanted to pay then, but they suggested we pay the next morning...on departure. Next morning we were charged double the amount that was agreed on at arrival. If we knew the price we were then charged, we would definetly not have stayed there as it would have been really expensive. The food was good, but this ruined our experience and i will not recommend to stay at " die nedersetting"More
