This restaurant served the best crispy pork belly I have eaten. The ostrich fillet was spot on too. On our 7th day in SA, this was the best restaurant we had eaten in. Marlene looked after us very well too. A great find in Oudtshoorn.

The Black Swan was a delight to find on my recent trip. They offer shuttle service from nearby lodging and the food & service were excellent. Not great wine options, but otherwise a very delightful and unexpected find in Oudtshoorn.
