Over many years we have been here umpteen times and umpteen times we leave saying "love it!" :) The staff and management are warm and inviting and make their visitors feel right at home. The food is fresh, wholesome, well prepared and presented. The menu...is limited but the selection is just right for such an establishment where many want to catch a quick light meal then continue on their road trip. It is clean and cosy and warm and has a great flair and character. Very local ... very lekker.More

A gem of a restaurant in Tsitsikamma. I had the veg soup which was sheer comfort on a chilly day. I tasted Tilly's freshly baked bread, filled with goodness - she even packed some taste slices to bring home. The cakes are delicious - decadent...chocolate, indulgent orange/caramel and hearty carrot cake! Food is prepared using only organic, high quality, local ingredients. Wholesome value for money. Stay over in the cottages if you have the time.More

We were on our way to Tsitsikama when we stopped to get something from the boot to nibble on when we decided to just stop there and have lunch. How glad are we that we did that. Boy oh boy what a delicious and fresh...lunch. Fireworks in your mouth! Took some chocolate cake for take away and it was just as delicious as the lunch. Def worth the stop on your way to PE or Stormsriver. #cherryguava #homegrownMore

My wife and I stopped off for lunch here on our way out of town, and it's an absolutely awesome place! The food is delicious, and the gardens surrounding the restaurant are beautiful. Make sure to try the homemade cake, too! We'll be back!

A lovely setting where you can wind down and enjoy interesting beers. Lovely food is served in a very relaxed setting in a type of garden. There is a tree full of memorabilia, where old shoes and other broken hiking equipment is hung for those...to follow. A very pleasant afternoon was spent there.More

Beautiful clean cottage, a nice living space downstairs with clean bathroom and a beautiful garden. Accessible fireplace right outside, spaces to both sit down and relax inside and out. Close enough to Jeffrey's bay as well as other tourist attractions such as the Tsitsikamma national...park, 1km from ziplining over one a river. The restaurant also has amazing food, really happy with our stay and we will be back in the future. Pool is also a nice extra for a quick swim on a hot day.More
