Where do I actually start. off no COVID protocols were even followed! We walked in no staff member to welcome us. Waited around for 5min and then just asked a waiter can we sit at a table! Eventually seated ourselves and went and ordered drinks...at the bar because the service was nonexistent. Then after another 15min we requested menus to which we were told they stop serving lunch and only opening up at 6pm! However food was coming out whilst being there so we asked can’t they just possibly make a bowl of chips or anything snack based because we hadn’t eaten yet. Couple min later the manager/owner comes out and started going off at my friends wife asking how can we come to a restaurant at 14:45 and expect to have food. 1st off in today’s times one should really look after your guests and not treat them in such a terrible manner. 2nd we are not from the area and accustomed to restaurants that stay open all day. I’m sure their food is good but I can guarantee I will never ever go back.More

Bozmano is a liar. They walked in after 15h00 and demanded a meal. The waitress said the restaurant closes at three and opens again at six. He told her it is pathetic. She called me and said he was rude. I told him we have...More
Good, laid back service but worth every minute. Hake & Chips delicious and perfectly prepared. Prawn Trinchado and bread was very, very garlicky and ultra tasty. Steak looked a bit bland but reported to be good. Tiger prawns looked equally good bit also reported to...be a bit ‘powdery’ but not unappetising. Lovely shade setting, chilled vibe - will see me again soonest.More
So often restaurants settle for the mediocre, bland and boring decor. Not here - full of character with unique art, and unique posters including some from the old USSR, China and Cuba.
And the food - prawn trinchada and chicken curry was probably some of...the best I’ve ever had - bold tastes full of character Portuguese style.
And the service was great attentive and friendly - Thank You!More
We enjoyed an lovely weekend at the Red Tin Roof, both the accomodation and restaurant is styled so beautifully and has an amazing atmosphere. Incredible service and absolutely delicious food, the best in Riebeek Kasteel.
We were last at the RTR some years back and were delighted that the standards have not dropped. We stayed in the guest house for six days and enjoyed every minute of our stay with spotless accommodation, pleasant and helpful staff, and a delightful menu...of Portuguese dishes, fantastically cooked and presented.
Sam & Jacques were the perfect hosts. So good it felt like home...plus!More
