Overnight in Colesberg and one has to eat, especially after a long drive. Very relaxed eatery, wide verity of food. But if one is in the Karoo, lamb is it. 'Lever in netvet' was great, whole lamb neck amazing. Very reasonably priced.

After being on the road and eating burgers an chips all we wanted was a good homemade meal. Bordeaux did not disappoint. With warm countryside hospitality and traditional cooking we had a splendid evening. We also enjoyed the history of how this restaurant came to...be. Thank you for your hospitality❤️More

My wife and I stayed over in Colesberg on our way to Gauteng. Dinner? Bordeaux! We had excellent service, a very good meal, especially at the price, and overall a lovely relaxing evening after a long day's driving. We can recommend the lamb curry. Next...time I'll try the lamb's neck.More

Good day Piet and Marlene thank you very much for a very friendly hospitality reception on our arrival on 3 April 2021 very nice room and delicious food (lamb curry and venison pie) served quickly by friendly masked waitress. The history of your ancestors is...very interesting and the story about the kakies and horse episode should be read with a little humor as well with al the hardship suffered in those days. Our fourth stay and see you again in October on our way back from Stellenbosch. Regards Louis and WilnaMore

The Bordeaux restaurant in Colesburg is a fantastic place to get a great meal at a good price. We found the staff very pleasant and helpful and service is good. The variety of food is of a high quality and is great value for money....I totally disagree with the PERSON "Chicique Route" - we've been coming for so many years to Bordeaux, and only received the best service and had never been waiting for 10 minutes - really, our experience with Bordeaux were always tranquil, relaxed and always on time, we can really recommend this restaurant!More

BORDEAUX has the most wonderful atmosphere one can expect: a tranquil, relaxed, quiet, but friendly atmosphere. It's SO relaxing to go there on a Saturday night. The management and staff are polite and VERY friendly. The setting spells "relax and unwind". I travel all over...South Africa, and this is one of the nicest restaurants I know. I strongly recommend it for cuisine, atmosphere and service.More

On arrival the owner was busy on her phone. After standing around gor about 10 minutes she directed us that we could sit anywhere and continued with her conversation. When the waited another 20 minutes for someone to bring us menus or to take our...drink order, but with no luck. The personnel walked past us, the only table in the restaurant several times, not wearing masks or handling any Covid19 protocol. So 30 minutes in, we decided to leave. We walked out and not a single person said or tried to do anything. Definitely not a place I would recommend.More

We had such a good time at this historic restaurant, the best meals and lemon meringue for dessert. Friendly staff and we were sanitized over and over. Gerhard had a homemade BURGER and chips, Johan enjoyed a homemade PIE, well done to the chef. Thanx

Disgusting. Burger made us sick. No Otis was days old. Chicken livers inedible. Don’t eat here! I ordered salad and got pasta in mayonnaise!?
