Reviewed 30 September 2021

We already had accommodation elsewhere in Keimoes and this restaurant was recommended for dinner and we didn't regret acting on it. We had lamb curry which was excellent and rounded it off with milkshakes for which they apparently are famous for. Staff more than friendly...and the lovely setting all made for a wonderful evening. Won't pass through Keimoes again without popping in there.More

The restaurant is unfortunately currently the only one open in Keimoes town. However, it is in a beautiful setting with Springbuck roaming the lush green lawns. The service was excellent. However, personally I think the food was average to good. The curry lamb was overcooked...and therefore not tasty Though soft with virtually no bones, it had very little taste of curry. The vegetables were overcooked too. The starter (snails) was on the contrary perfectly prepared and tasty with little garlic and lots of cheesy topping.More

Good selection on the family-friendly menu. Friendly staff and a great setting this is a good stopover either overnight or for lunch , midmorning coffee or afternoon tea. The locals also offer great travel advise if you have a moment to listen.

We state over in De Werf Lodge, on our way back from the Richtersveld. We arrived quite late but were welcomed by friendly stafford members . A good mening with a comparable wine list...good food and country atmosphere. Highly recommended, also to consider staying over...in the lodge, on the same premises.More

Not too far from Upington, just outside the little town of Keimoes, os De Werf where springbok and ducks roam around nibbling the grass. The service was good and the food delicious. Our Waitress was attentive. All in all, we can recommend this restaurant.

While on our way through Keimos en route to Cape Town, we stopped here for breakfast. I've stayed at the establishment over night and remembered that they serve up a grand breakfast. Friendly staff and a wonderful venue.

Small menu and could have done more to make the place a little bit cosy. Waiter did inform us that the steaks are not good which was a pity as I was looking forward to a great steak. Typical small town restaurant.

We stayed at De Werf Lodge on the way back from the Kgalagadi, and enjoyed dinner at the restaurant. The food was nicely prepared and tasty. But they didn't have enough staff on duty and our lovely waitress literally ran all evening to try and...serve all the customers.More

On arrival we were greeted enthusiastically by each and every member of staff as they appeared. We really did feel welcome. Our waitress was friendly and attentive. We had a light luncheon of milkshakes and toasted sandwiches, all of which were very very good. We...misread the notice outside which said 'best coffee........milkshakes, ... ' and ordered coffee milkshakes. Our waitress did not hesitate despite it not actually being on the menu. They were legendary! Hope they have added them to the menu. Excellent value for money. This was a worthwhile break between destinations on our long journey home from the Kalahari.More

A very basic restaurant but good food being served for what one pays! R 65 for a burger, R55 for a bottle of wine. A roaring fire in the restaurant. Staff very friendly. Not many other choices in Keimoes.

Normal selection of food for the region, prepared well with friendly staff. There is a great fireplace (that was not going) and glass on two sides (with oddly enough, open sliding doors in winter). I fire, with closed doors and some candles with make this...a great place. A bar around the corner and reception sells a small selection of great local wines and products.More
