We had a booking made by the Queen's Hotel but they had lost it so we had to sit inside in a corner table with no atmosphere. Simple food with plenty of ostrich on the menu, both the stir fry and the burger were tasty. Very short wine list with little of interest to us so we had beer instead. Service seemed slow and they were obviously short staffed.

Tables are close together and it's a noisy environment so keep this in mind when booking a table. Staff were friendly and efficient, and the food delicious. Our neighbours had sushi, which looked fresh and gave me menu envy. We had Karoo bootie, a classic South African dish, Karoo ostrich chateau briand, Karoo lamb shank, and an ostrich burger. Have the chateau briand - what a spectacle and a really delicious meal. The umbrellas are necessary for the sun but tend to retain the heat under them in the evening.

Popped in for lunch, menu was limited but staff welcomed us and served ice cold beer. Maybe next time we will try the sushi and other delicatessens. it has a good name with most of the locals we spoke to.

No ambience. Service with attitude. While we were there people cancelled orders and left. Didn’t have what my husband ordered - this information needs to be relayed when you arrive not after half an hour of waiting for your order to be taken. Salad dressing arrived when salad was nearly finished. I fetched salt and pepper from another table. No black pepper! Someone needs to be taught how to make tartare sauce. Honestly the worst meal we have ever eaten. TV blaring. First and last visit. Came home and ate rusks.

On our holiday from the U.K. to visit family in Oudtshoorn we looked for a venue that could accommodate a range of preferences, and the Karoopot’s offering was ideal. We were a party of 9 and had no limit to our budget but did have a craving for traditional dishes. However, 3 of us wanted 300 gram Ostrich steaks which were out of stock - very annoying for a Friday night. So my choice from the Chef’s Specialities was the Karoo Babotie and my husband’s the Red Wine and Garlic Ostrich; others had steaks, Cape Malay Meat Curry, Chicken Schnitzel, and Alfredo pasta - all of which were enjoyed except my dry & crusted Babotie that I couldn’t eat, and hubby’s tough Ostrich scraps in a Linguine that was over stirred and chopped up. The friendly and highly efficient gentleman serving us was understanding and offered to call the owners and to discount our meal, which was appreciated. We never heard from such owners and my craving for traditional Babotie remains unmet and my expectations of the Karoopot sadly deflated. Come on, guys, your great offering on paper needs to translate into a superb experience on the plate to uphold your reputation. Great service alone is insufficient to get me back. Good luck as you work on the details.

The Restaurant was recommended by the Guest house , limited menu but we could work with it . Ordered first drinks .... it took very long , then asked the waitress not to hide and to visit the table regularly , that did not happen . Very poor service , eventually the food arrived , they managed to mess up all 3 orders . Called the manager 20 min later she still did not arrive , she eventually came and immediately had an attitude ..... Her first words “if you not happy leave “ !!!!! I have no words ! We Paid and left !

We have a serious shellfish allergy in the family, told them about this when ordering our sushi. When the food came one of the dishes had prawns on, in a sauce, so not visible to the eye. Luckily we spotted it before the allergic person touched it. This could have resulted in a fatality. Management did not take it seriously at all. Very unprofessional and very dangerous. I don’t think they have proper controls, so we will never visit this restaurant again. The sushi is normally ok, but the rest of the menu is actually terrible anyway. Most of the time there is more staff than guests.

We have just walked out of this restaurant. We prebooked a table and arrived on time. We ordered wine and waited over 10 minutes to be told that was not available then left again while we chose a beer. It was over 20 minutes from arriving that we actually got our drink and then 55 minutes from arriving to getting our starter which was disappointing in itself. After waiting with empty glasses and promises of a main course, watching other tables be attended and hosted happily, we paid for what we had eaten and left. We were there an hour and 40 minutes and felt ignored. They were lucky we paid for what we had at all.

Will definitely not recommend. Waited a hour for a simple take-away sushi order after being told when I ordered telephonically it will only take 20minutes. Literally 2x tables were seated in the whole restaurant. Pathetic.

We came here for brunch and then returned for dinner. Good busy atmosphere with plenty of locals which is always a good sign. Lovely food and service. Can just have cocktails and drinks or stay for full meal. Just a nice cosy place to be...

Two of us went for dinner . As a vegetarian I ordered vegetarian Californian rolls . The ginger was very tired otherwise ok . I ordered a vegetarian burger which came with chips & requested crispy chips with some mayonnaise for the chips . The vegaetarian burger I never ate after tasting it . It was mash potato fried into a patty with one spinach leaf & one small sauté of feta cheese in it that I could make out . The chips were raw inside & fried in old oil . They charged me R20.00 for a small little bowl of mayonnaise . I never ate my food & they gave me a discount of R30.00 . The meal should not have been charged for . My friend ordered a sirloin . He said it was a rump cut & awful & cut the fat off for his dogs . It came with chips & onion rings . The chips were like my chips disgusting & the onion rings were hideous . Will not be returning !!!
