Driving from Paternoster up the west coast to check out places of interest, we decided to stop at Soverby's for a quick coffee (during rough seas and winds). Inside we we were welcomed with fireplace and warmth against outside coldness. Good coffee was enjoyed with...compliments to staff and owner of service. This must be the place to go for a function in the area, not just for the area and ambience, but also service and food.More

We were drawn to the restaurant by the spectacular adjoining flower display and decided to have a late lunch. We had the hake - and 2 generous portions were crisply fried and served piping hot and tasty. I had the mussels and can only say,...it was finger licking good - it is a favourite dish I often order and this was one of the best ever! The mussles were perfectly fresh, the sauce was tasty! This restaurant is geographically in the Sandveld known for producing the best potatoes - our chips verified this (the menu indicates the mussels are served with bread, but requested the chips being in the Sandveld), they were crisply fried and very tasty. Service was excellent and comments made by a large table adjoining ours indicated they were very impressed. It is family style restaurant with a 5-star view over the sea and beautiful white beach. Will go back!More

We walked along the beach from Dwarskersbos town to the lapa for breakfast. The coffee was hot and the food was great, big portions. They kindly divided a meal between two plates for our small kids. I'll definitely be going back for cocktails and lunch...next time I'm there.More

We had our special wedding day reception at Soverby lapa 1 October 2021. What a wonderful and beautiful day. Everything from planning to the actual day was great. We were speechless when we arrived at venue and saw the transformation and beautiful decor. We left...the decor in Charldo and Gina's capable hands. We were impressed. The food was so tasty and very yummy! Thanks for everyone who made our special fairytale wedding come true.More

Lovely food and excellent service from the young lady that served our area. I have noticed that ratings are quite opposing but we had a lovely experience. We arrived around 11;30 with about five tables occupied by guests (locals and visitors). If restaurants are frequented...by locals, it is a very good indication of the quality of food and service. We shall return when we are in the area again.More

Seafood and more seafood. But there are light meals such as burgers too. Great variety of meat and seafood.
