We had the most divine bistro lunch at this place on our recent road trip to the Karoo. Service was friendly and efficient (no fear of getting stuck waiting here!). I had the chicken livers, which were perfectly spiced at medium threshold. And my partner...had a delicious chicken mayo toastie with thick cut fries. We’ll definitely be back! (And yes, my partner had a gin and tonic. I was there for the bistro fare!)More

What a great find along our travel route. The bar was stocked with so many varieties of gin it was hard to choose. Letitia's knowledge of each brand was impressive.

We decided to stop here for breakfast while traveling to Cape Town along Route 62. We arrived just as they were opening up and were seated inside, since it was a cold and rainy morning. The reception from the owners and Chilli the cat was...very friendly. We both chose the Shakshuka eggs, excellent choice, so flavourful and the perfect breakfast for a cold winters morning. The rest of the menu looked delectable and the gin menu very interesting. Unfortunately, since it was breakfast time and we were traveling, we couldn’t do a gin tasting, but next time we will do an overnight stop in Ladismith especially for a visit to Gypsy's.More

On a recent trip to sleepy Ladismith I visited this beautiful oasis called Gypsy's Gin bar Bistro. The warm welcome from Masood, Letitia, and the delights within draw you in after a long journey. The food they offer is delicious and I highly recommend you...partake in the gin tasting. There are 120 different gins in stock, and the stories behind each are spell bindingly shared with you by the very knowledgable host Letitia. I absolutely recommend this gem of a place!More

Happened upon Gypsy's Ginbar per chance on our honeymoon. The owners and staff made us feel so welcome and educated us on the 118 (!!) gins that they have in stock. Sadly only got through 6 or 7 of them and ended up spending almost...half a day there. We barely left and long to go back again ASAP. As if that was not enough, they also have stunning views from the outside patio!More

A tailor-made meal made specially for me. Unusual and absolutely scrumptious food. The gin selection is to die for and I really appreciated that the best quality tonic was supplied (not some artificially sweetened cooldrink). I will definitely go back!

What a fantastic find!! We love Indian food so what a surprise to find this awesome spot! We were there at 10.30 so only had breakfast and coffee, pity too early for gin tasting. Breakfast was superb 👌 coffee for R25 made 2 cups such...a bargain. Can't wait to go back for a good lunch. Excellent hosts and staff, so friendly. We got such a warm welcome. Beautiful old house with beautiful old furniture. A gem in the Karoo.More
