Breakfast...was ok! Restaurant is on the old Cullinan railway station. Had a large breakfast...served in a shovel! Plates have given way to spades but lends itself to a unique atmosphere. Prices are average and variety limited. Food was cold and the beer even colder! Numerous shops on the other side of the trax..if you're into old stuff and collectibles.

Stopped here for breakfast. The surroundings were very peaceful and quiet as it was a week day visit. We ordered a breakfast which came on a shovel. Very different. Really enjoyed it. Would really recommend a visit.

It was not that busy, and almost every person repeated these words - did they have to slaughter the animals first before serving food? Toasted sandwiches took 45 minutes to reac our table. Everybody trying to order a milkshake got told they can't as there is no ice-cream. And more -all indications of a badly managed kitchen. The mist sprayers... More

We travelled to Cullinan on the Friends of the Rail steam train and made a booking at Oppistasie. Although the train arrived late and many people descended on the restaurant at once, the service was quick and efficient and our food was served in good time considering the number of people in the restaurant. The food was really delicious, the... More

Arrived too late for breakfast (11am) but was able to order lunch. Homemade pies very delicious. Food served on shovels which is a nice novel idea. Good service and a lovely quaint atmosphere. Afterwards you can wander round a few of the 2nd hand shops which border the station.

Had lunch at Oppistasie on Sunday. Table was booked as arranged and was ready when we arrived. Busy little restaurant. Food was excellent. Nice way to spend a Sunday lunch. Waitress was friendly and was not overbearing.

We travelled with Friends of the Rail from Hermanstad station to Cullinan. We called beforehand to reserve a table at Oppistasie and all was in order when we arrived. We dined on the stoep and received good service and a nice steak and beef curry.
