This is a strange and funky little restaurant/shop just outside hermanus. I guess you could best describe this as an Afrikaans Cracker Barrel. The wine is pretty bad. Didnt get a chance to sample the food but it looked good. Friendly service and pretty property.

A group of seven visited the Plaaskombuis for lunch. The food is basic and local, but they use fresh ingredients with a limited menu. The chicken salad was large and tasty, the quiche somewhat overcooked, but the lamb curry sumptuous. Real home food like grandmother...More

We visited the Plaaskombuis for breakfast. We were on our family December holiday and every eating out experience is an occasion for us. This one definitely the worst ever! We could see the staff were unorganised- they could not deal with the demand of a...More
