Take a trip to aangenaam,you will be welcomed with open arms and warm hearts. The food is worth the wait, the flavors melt in your mouth, go visit the bar and make memories with me friends. Home cooked meals but with a twist suitable for...all palates. The ambieance is cozy and the candles around the restaurant give it a warm feeling.More

Went to Aangenaam for my husband's birthday dinner and was so pleasantly surprised that a small town like Wakkerstroom can have such a fantastic restaurant. We had starters, mains and dessert and each course was excellent. Moved into their cozy pub for a few nightcaps...which were enjoyed with the owners, Sheroo and Emma. I would highly recommend this restaurant to anybody that wants a fine dining experience at affordable prices. Thank you for making us feel so welcome and we wish you continued success!More

We arrived at Aangenaam (previously The Garrett) at 13h00 for lunch. Ordered 2 beers and a coke while deciding on what to eat. Wanted the Pork Belly but was told its sold out. Then chose the chicken curry....we waited an hour and 20 minutes and...still the food didn't arrive....not acceptable. Was told by owner "sorry the kitchen is hectic". I honestly couldn't care for his excuses. To wait that long is pathetic to say the least. Disappointing...Disappointing. will NEVER see me again thats for sure.More

Having had a meal here before we decided that The Garret would be the ideal place to go to for a celebratory 40th anniversary meal. Only a 45 min drive from Newcastle proved to be an ideal location for an outing after being restricted by...lockdown! We (4 of us) were not disappointed. We were welcomed by a delightful Emma who immediately made us feel at home & 'took care' of us to ensure that this was indeed a special occasion. The meal was superb with delicious starters & a great main. Being so well fed meant that the dessert became a take away!! A lovely venue with lots of atmosphere - we will be back.More

We had a lovely lunch at The Garret Emporium. It has a lovely atmosphere and the friendly owners make you feel right at home. I would definitely recommend one of their craft gins. It was a real treat.

The best omelets in the land. The very best steak, egg and chips I have ever had. The homemade sauces are out of this world. Don't miss this exquisite experience in Wakkerstroom.

Spent a few days in Wakkerstroom with a group of friends, and had the MOST delicious lunch here. Would love to have tried dinner here, but sadly they were closed in the evenings we were in town. Note to self - check opening times. Wonderful...food and really great service.More

We arrived for dinner on a chilly November evening. We were greeted by a fire burning in the grate, subdued lighting and a warm welcome frim the managers. After pre-dinner drinks by candlelight in a quaint little lounge, we enjoyed a feast of chicken livers,...prawns and seafood curry. The Garrett has a cosy little pub too. And, don't forget to ask about the mysterious story of coffee table ....More
