I recommend K se Gat as a laid back casual stopover. We were a party of 12 cyclists on day 1 of a 4 day cycle with the daunting pass just ahead. Bikes were charged effortlessly and at zero cost and the service was prompt...and enthusiasticMore

Lovely looking place. Stood in que to order food for a while only to be told after being at the venue for about 25 min that the kitchen is now closed to prepare for a function. Would have been nice if we could have been...warned when we bought drinks and were given a menu.More

This was one of the best dinners I had in a very long time. It was made with love and care! The roosterkoek that was steaming hot with butter melted in and apricot jam was to die for. The main meal was super tasty with...the different types of meat and vegetables and then a lovely dessert to top it all off. Thank you for your friendliness. I will come again!More

Excellent food in huge portions :) But the best is to ask Hatim for his special Moroccan Coffee. It will do magic! Excellent souper en grosses portions :) Mais le mieux c´est de demander un café marocain de Hatim. C´est de la magie! Sehr gutes...Essen in großen Portionen:) Aber das Beste ist, Hatim um seinen marokkanischen Kaffee zu bitten. Einfach fantastisch!More

A delightfully colourful host, Babooti spring rolls a must and the view from the restaurant is worth the trip. Definitely a must for anyone who loves good food.

Nice enough place but the kitchen was hopelessly understaffed, resulting in meals taking up to an hour to deliver to the table. In our case, two meals were served and one was forgotten and arrived after other two were consumed. Unfortunately cannot recommend this establishment,...especially over weekends.More

Arrive hungry! Portions are HUGE. You place your order at the counter and it’s delivered to your table. Staff are very chatty and friendly. Food is super-tasty and amazing value for money. You won’t eat again the same day! We had 3 different versions of...the roosterkoek and were delighted with the creative touches to the fillings.More

Beyond disappointed with Kobus se Gat. Received the rudest service I’ve come across in SA in a very long time. The restaurant manager/representative behind the counter who eventually took our orders couldn’t possibly have been ruder or more disinterested in serving us if he tried....He ignored us initially as we arrived. Gave no direction on how the order system worked. Eventually took our order with absolute disdain… how dare we interrupt his 10 min, non-food order-related conversation with other patrons who were done paying long ago. We were genuinely polite and courteous, but were clearly a massive inconvenience to his day from the moment we arrived. A disappointing experience, when our expectations were so much greater. What we experienced was not famous Karoo hospitality. Far from it. Business must be booming to think he can treat customers that way and they’ll keep coming back. There are many other amazing places to eat in that area, where your support is acknowledged and appreciated in true South African style… graciously and genuinely.More

Disappointed beyond belief,cannot rate the service as there was none, forgot about us, then forced to take food as take away, it was horrible, inedible, threw it in trash can. Never again, I will crawl to the next eatery, but never there again, and beers...overpriced at R30 and not even offered a glass. Nee dankie, good luck to that place.More
