De Oude Meul Old Mill Restaurant is no ordinary restaurant. It is a historic building with the Old Watermill still inside the restaurant. Approx. 150 years old. The restaurant opened its doors in Oct. 2003 and is still going strong! The restaurant is known for the wide variety of venison dishes served in the restaurant. People come from wide and far to experience it! We are also known for the wildlife scenery and river in front of the restaurant that creates a peaceful yet romantic atmosphere! We are situated at the foothills of the Swartberg mountains and are also surrounded by mountains. Truly the little paradise in the Klein Karoo!
