Under the shade of the 190 year old pepper tree, on the grounds of Swartberg Country Manor, you will find a little taste of heaven. A small restaurant with a big heart. Chef Pierre Basson treated us to such magnificence that if I hadn't left after two days, I would have rolled all the way home. The restaurant has a wonderfully relaxed atmosphere and a 180 degree view of the Swartberg Mountains. We were treated to a full moon rising, exceptional service and truly decadent, wholesome food. What a treat! As my new keto life directed, no sugar and no gluten allowed. I had completed my dietary requirements a few days before I arrived… without having seen the ridiculous deliciousness on offer. I was also traveling with a vegetarian - apologies chef! Pierre prepared the most delicious gluten, sugar free and vegetarian food this side of the Southern Hemisphere… and then I crumbled and ate the chocolate brownie too! I have lived with chefs and I know that this is just not what you do! If you order the special stuff, don’t eat the “normal” stuff! But I caved and I loved it and Pierre was just delightful and took it all in his stride. From the ostrich carpaccio to the karoo lamb chops and green fig creme brulee, everything was world class and simply delicious! The baked goods and the fresh (straight from the garden) produce was a highlight and then there was the picnic and the breakfast too. It was all utterly delectable. Thank you Pierre and Patat, that was an incredible experience!

I overnighted on a cold Sunday night with snow on the Swartberg mountains. I was welcomed warmly at dinner time and Patat was already burgeoning. The décor is an eclectic mix of classic and Karoo. The menu is concise and bold – I opted for a two course with a broccoli soup as started and ostrich as a main course. The soup was poured at the table and served with mosbolletjies. Pure bliss! The mains was world class!! Excellent wines too. I returned for breakfast – the dishes were attractively presented, the portions sizes were generous and the tastes flavourful. The home-made bread was a treat! The coffee was good too. The services from Dené, Dylan and Morné was polite, professional and prompt. The whole experience exceeded my expectations. Ideal for a memorable meal.

Amazing food and incredibly beautiful setting/view. We stayed at Swartberg Country Lodge and had breakfast, lunch, and dinner at Patat for two days. We really enjoyed all the food and appreciated the fact that the ingredients were mostly sourced from the in-house organic veggie garden. I also left there with four jars of delicious jam that the chef makes.

I stayed at Swartberg Country Manor with my 8 year old for 3 nights. What a place! We were welcomed but the amazingly friendly and helpful staff and the grounds are just beautiful! We had all our meals at Patat and the food was so delicious with more than adequate servings. The view is breathtaking and the atmosphere is so peaceful - the music is always just right and the staff so well trained and professional. I can't wait to go back!

Had an amazing delicious dinner at Patat ,you would think that you are eating in a Michelin star restaurant instead of a small manor country hotel. The lamb shank & the Ostrich fillet weee both melt in the mouth tasted delicious . The hot bread as well as the soups and the dessert all tasted divine . Thank you Chef Rickus for the amazing dinner.. Service was excellent .

Perfection in every way. What a hidden gem. We were welcomed by the host and were treated like family. The wine selection helped making the dinner experience exceptional. We had the ribs and it was amazing. I can highly recommend Patat Restaurant at Swartberg Country Manor in Oudtshoorn

I've been at Patat on a few occasions; Christmas, picnics, winter, summer and I will continue to do so. You are greeted by the friendly staff which immediately makes you feel at home and relaxed. I'm a Karoo lover and there is no better place to enjoy a sundowner than at Patat which has the most spectacular views. The food and wine are next level! I love love love how the food is presented in such a beautiful and artistic way.

This is a lovely restaurant in a magnificent spot with such a relaxing atmosphere. Most nights we ate on the deck with the peaceful Karoo night surrounding us. The menu features a 3 course meal (if you want to you can opt for just 2). There is a choice of 2 starters, 3 mains and 2 desserts. The menu changes daily and every dish was to die for. It’s the best Ostrich steak I’ve ever had, cooked to perfection. The menu is creative and yet simple, the dishes are tasty and definitely tease your palate leaving you wanting more in a good way. I would definitely go back and highly recommend this restaurant. The service was also great.

We had the most incredible dinner and breakfast at Patat while staying overnight at the Swartberg Country Manor. The portions for our three course meal were just right and the unique flavors blended well together. The food was fresh and made with quality ingredients. Not only was the food great but the hospitality and views of the Swartberg mountains were like none other. My husband and I felt so relaxed and well taken care of. I would highly recommend to anyone staying in the area or at the Country Manor to make a trip to Patat for a meal.

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.

Visiting Patat was a wonderful unforgettable experience. From the moment we walked in, we knew we were in for a treat. The entire experience was wonderful, from the view, the delicious food, impeccable presentation, the attentive service to the charming ambiance. We were treated like VIP's! I wish we stayed closer, we will always come back!!! This is a "must-visit" restaurant.

This place is a must on your itinerary when you visit the area. Friendly staff, excellent service and breathtaking views. Join them for a light lunch while sipping a crisp white wine overlooking the picturesque mountains. Sadly we did not stay over but have added it to our itinerary for our next visit to Oudtshoorn.
