We had the most delicious meal here. Recommended by the owner of our accommodation and for a good reason! The food was prepared with love and care - it was totally delicious and they were super helpful in "veganising" it for me. They also had...More

We arrived mid-afternoon but had no problem with service. The burgers were immense and delicious. Clearly home made. Lovely ecclectic setting with souveniers of the owners' travels around the world. Big dogs who didn't mind us but don't like other pets. Quiet and entertaining.

Four of us had a dinner and enjoyed our meal. The food was well-priced and the service was fine. This is not a place for fine-dining but it is a pleasant restaurant. I think it must be nice to sit outside but it was too...More

We haven't booked because we randomly decided to drive to Riebeeck Kasteel. When we entered the restaurant there were quite a few open tables inside which was fine, because we didn't want to sit in the sun. The owner/manager made it clear that "walk-ins" were...More

We were the only people there for an early lunch. We sat in the garden on a sunny day and enjoyed a pleasant meal and a bottle of wine. The menu is pretty straightforward and child friendly and I'd think this is a fine place...More

Popped into The Red Tin Roof for lunch yesterday; we had a delicious meal (starter & main). The fish was delicious (try the fish cakes) and the beef was cooked to perfection. Nice wine and good coffee. Loved the setting outside in the courtyard under...More

If you are looking for a pub this is not the place. The marketing is misleading as this is a restaurant and is great for families and children. The only thing pub related is the fact that they serve alcohol.

Drove past this restaurant on the way into Riebeeck Kasteel and both my wife and I remarked that the restaurant looked interesting and worth a visit. Décor includes many posters and interesting items apparently sourced from all around the world. Our waiter, Chimfundo, was amazing...More
