What a rude woman! Happy new year to you too! Hope your 2020 sucks. So probably our fault for walking in because the sign said “open and burgers.” But hey we walked in with the family and knowing it’s New Year’s Day didn’t expect much....Anything really. Asked if they had burgers. They said “yes.” Sat down. Asked if they had drinks. They said “not really.” 😳 at a bar. So we asked what they had and said anything will do. What do you have? Got told “coke.” Asked for water too and they said “we don’t have any water.” So we ordered 4 cokes and 4 burgers. At that stage the craziest thing happened. “Sorry” she then whistles! And says “rather try the place next door” and points to the door and kicks us out. Probably suffering from a hangover and doesn’t want to do her job. The sniggering idiot behind the bar wasn’t very pleasant either. Avoid at all costs. Pringle bay is amazing. Everyone so far has been absolutely fantastic. Friendly. Helpful. Magical place. Except this dive.More

Miems, run by colourful Kerneels and Morris, is still the place with the best atmosphere in the Overberg! You can easily add Miems to that special little restaurant anywhere in the world you will never forget... The hake is the best in the Western Cape...for sure, expertly prepared by Rene - a chef who knows how. The prices are very reasonable. It's not just a restaurant, it becomes a part of why you love the area and its people.More

We visited the Miems Restaurant in Pringle Bay for dinner. The foods was excellent and good value. The hosts are very friendly and accommodating. This restaurant can be recommended for a lovely night out. It is licenced.

Not just a restaurant or a bar, this is the essential stop over for adventurers who want to explore the region. Morris, a retired geologist and his amazing wife, Kerneels have loads of information on the rich history of the place and the location of...treasures and secret caves. They are intimately aquatinted with best hikes, routes, caves, kloofs and beaches to explore. We visited them and immediately became part of their family! What amazing people and what a jewel of a place! They turned two days in the area into an unforgettable experience!More

We have been coming here for more than ten years and the owner and his wife are delightful. We went for supper and had hamburgers and salad and chips washed down with some good SA wine. Very good basic food in a nice atmosphere.

A warm, friendly smile from Kerneels and Morris, the owners and you immediately feel right at home. This gem is situated in the heart of Pringle Bay and offers a rustic setting with simple, good food. Here, there is no pretense, no flashy menus, no...frills, just warm hospitality, good food and a "I want to come back" atmosphere. Hang out with the locals, drink whatever you please and eat some good chow and return because this is a genuine experience. The food is averagely priced - the most expensive item is the pork belly at around R95.00 My favourite dish is the crispy fish (hake, fried till crispy, stacked on a bed of noodles and topped off with an amazing Thai green curry sauce). Don't miss out on the soups, they are always delish! Sit and stay and enjoy!More

Waiter said we could sit down and have a drink while passing through on the way to Cape Town. Once she took us upstairs we were refused a drink because they were too busy. Meanwhile the barman was standing around, we weren't palning on staying...long just needed a coke. Be more prepared for season!More
