The menu choices were good and very farm style. Thank you for the lovely meal and very friendly service. The karoo rack of lamb was delicious. We enjoyed the breakfast overlooking the rolling mountains and the friendly doggies to chat to.

Even though the menu for lunchtime is slightly limited the quality of the food, service and view of the Swartberg Mountains make Patat Restaurant one if the Top5 in my books for The Klein Karoo region! Exeptional winelist!!

The food was delicious, they have a wide selection of wine. The view is stunning overlooking ostriches with a background of the Swartberge. The staff is friendly.

The Patat was superb. We arrived with late just because we didn’t realize you are so far from Oudtshoorn. But they were smiley and friendly. Great place, atmosphere, kindness of everyone and of course, last but not least, the food. Thumbs up for the ostrich...and the lamb in particular. To be more than perfect they’ve just to fix something with the dessert 😉. Probably - and unfortunately- we we’ll not come back to SA very soon, but in case, Swartberg Country Manor will be for sure one more time a choice for us. Meanwhile, we will recommend them to Italian friends.More

The scenery and stoep is lovely, but thats it. The menu is very minimalistic, portions extremely small, way over priced, you leave still feeling hungry, that after we ate lunch for three(ordered a double portion on the one dish). We are not big eaters but...the main dish is smaller then some restaurants starters. Very dissapointed.More

Patat restaurant is one of my favourites in the Klein Karoo! Granted, it is a bit of a drive from Oudtshoorn city centre but it is most certainly worth it! It is so peaceful, quiet, serene and beautiful here. You could very easily spend the...entire day just sitting on the swing chair on the deck enjoying the views and the company of the Jack Russels. The menu is very limited but that allows them to do everything to perfection which is exactly what they do! The menu is well thought out and will cater to just about anyone's tastes. The tasting plate is a really good idea if everything looks and sounds good and you cannot make up your mind! Will definitely recommend a meal here.More

We had booked a picnic, and sat on the lawn to enjoy it. But what alot of food we got, and were not able to do it justice unfortunately. I really like the insulated picnic baskets. We ordered wine from the wine list, which we...enjoyed with the foodMore

The food was amazing. My husband had the buffet and I had the set menu You need to say what you want you want for dinner when you check in at the Swartberg Country Manor. The only reason I didn't give it a rating of...excellent was because waiters and waitresses need a little bit more training in customer relations. A great place to eat if you're staying at the Swartberg Country Manor.More
