We had the privilege of visiting the Red Rooster. We were warmly and enthusiastically welcomed by hosts Tony and Denise. We met a few of the locals which kept us thoroughly entertained whilst Denise served the most delicious meals. One will need to travel far...to find better hosts. If you are in the area the RED ROOSTER is a must visit. Thank you Tony and Denise - You fly the Wakkerstroom flag very proudly!More

Best Selection of beers ever seen in a restaurant outside of the city. Craft selection was incredible. Personally served by owners and invited to their private table for desert. Food was excellent and the local vibe very friendly. Looking forward to the next visit. Will...visit the town simply to go there again.More

We were in Wakkerstroom for the weekend and found this family owned and run restaurant on the main street. We had dinner and the atmosphere was so warm and welcoming. The little lounge in front where the owner's dogs were sleeping made it feel like...home. The food was excellent and well priced. We explored some of the other restaurants during our weekend stay but kept on coming back here. The owners are very friendly and accommodating. Best restaurant in town!More

We took a Lille drive out to Wakkerstroom and decided to pop in at the Red Rooster: The pizza was awesome and we enjoyed sitting outside. Service was great. A worthwhile stop in Wakkerstroom.

Went to Wakkerstroom for a quick getaway from the city. The moment you walk into the Red Rooster you’re welcomed with the most wonderful aroma wafting from the kitchen. The atmosphere and decor is delightful and fun. The pizza was an absolute highlight. The crust...is thin and crispy and the sauce is superb. There is no doubt that Denise and Tony, who own and run the restaurant, love treating every guest to a family experience with fun and good food!More

We went there on a quiet weekend for Wakkerstroom and even then was food and service great. I had the Lamb tagine and it was stunning. Beer(s) all cold and they serve the Nottinghill brewery range which in my books rates highly!

We spent a lovely evening having dinner in the cosy restaurant. There is a great selection of meals to choose from and everything we had was delicious! The next day we went back and enjoyed coffee and cake in the beautiful garden. It really is...a must when visiting Wakkerstroom.More
