Hello You has taken off where the old Polka sadly left off . Excellent Karoo cuisine and great service reflect the local Karoo flavour . Great ambience too .... you can choose the patio or the rustic vine draped courtyard for lunch or on a warm evening . The interior is less casual but full of character and has a fireplace for consider evenings . Coupled to Maria's Coffee shop during the day it is a great combination and " must visit " if you stop over or pass through Graaff Reinette!

We happened to be there for breakfast, after an early winter drive from an overnight stay at Gariep Dam. The food was compellingly charming, and of the highest quality. If you've never tasted these kinds of sweet and salty combinations on crumpets before, they will blow your mind. My fried banana in honey and hot oatmeal porridge was equally special. They have now been forgiven for the sinewy lamb chops we had there for lunch eight years ago. Worth a visit, and for me, a return visit. You won't regret it. This place is serious about food.

One of the best restaurants i have ever been to. We had lunch here and had to come back for breakfast another day. Both meals were fantastic! Stunning, balanced menu. Interesting dishes as well as well known dishes. Something for everyone! The plating is beautiful. Every dish a joy to look at. Cannot fault anything on the plate. Every item cooked to perfection. Lastly but certainly not least is the staff. Everyone we had contact with was extremely professional and friendly. Also, the food comes out in good time. This is a biggie for me. Too many restaurants make you wait for nearly a hour to receive your food. Well done owners, staff and management of Hello You. You nailed it!!!!

Food was dissapointing and the service was lacking. The pork belly ribs were tough and chewy and the chicken wings precooked and warmed up with the sauce. When you serve finger type foods you should have wet wipes or finger bowls but they don't. I had to go and wash my hands in the bathroom to get the sticky sauce off. The cappucinos were nice.

Busy spot and probs probably the reason the service was was very slow but can recommend tapas menu - calamari (fried or grilled),pork ribs and the marrow bones. Carpaccio was not great as it was sliced far too think. Waitresses were very friendly and tried their best during the loadshedding.

We could see from the minute our waiter approached us that he was disinterested and didn't care! He got the tea order wrong, and also the fish, we asked for grilled, but got deep fried! After he put my salad down in front of me, a baby cockroach crawled out, so I called the waiter over and told him to look at the cockroach, who obliged, by crawling out again! He showed no concern at all, and took it away. He eventually brought back a new salad, then disappeared, not to be seen again. Lovely venue, but the staff were really disinterested. Lots of management walking around, but none showed any interest in what was going on in their restaurant at all!

My wife had the quiche, which she said was fantastic. I ordered lamb chops, which came in a portion of three chops, all on top of one another. The top two were fine, but hidden underneath was a really inedible overly fatty piece, which could hardly be described as a chop. It could only be seen once the top two had been eaten. The really sour taste came only later that night, when my wife told me that she had overheard our waitress saying "That a*$#hole" (referring to me) did not even give me a tip". This was a blatant lie as, even though I had conveyed to the waitress my displeasure about one of the lamb chops (and the fact that it was hidden away under presentable ones), I had still given her a R50 tip on a bill of R475. Out of embarrassment, my wife handed the waitress a further R300. By the time my wife told me this the restaurant had already closed, and we left Graff-Reinet very early the next morning, long before the restaurant opened. I therefore could not take this up with the restaurant directly. I therefore reported it to the guest house owner at the place we stayed, and left him my bill and credit card slip as proof of what had occurred and of the fact that I had given a R50 tip, and he also interviewed my wife to hear her story. He promised to take the incident up with the restaurant, which I assume he did, although I have heard nothing further.

We sat in the pretty courtyard at the back and chose salads which were out of this world. Alongwith an Uber Iced tea with honey and lemon. The chicken salad had so many delicious ingredients I will battle to make anything as lovely myself. My husband had naan bread with falafel , humus and avocado and loved every bite. Our waitress was lovely. The same premises had housed Polka for many years so we hope everyone will support Hello You. It deserves to do well.

Recommended by the Drostdy Hotel we had a really lovely meal at Hello You. Delightfully tasty tomato salad followed by Kingclip and chicken main dishes both very tasty and filling. No room for desserts! A short but very well priced wine list, Weltevrede Calcrete Chardonnay person a very good choice. Buzzy atmosphere and packed out with friendly service. A very good recommendation.

We really had a splendid meal at this restaurant last week. I ordered the vegetarian green curry and loved every morsel of this flavourful dish. My husband thought that his Karoo lamb chops were the best he ever had at a restaurant. The professional and very friendly staff were a delight to experience and the ambience of the restaurant just lovely! I would love to go back there and heartily recommend this place!

We recently dined at Hell You restaurant and had an exceptional experience. The steaks were cooked to perfection, and the side dishes were creatively prepared, adding a delightful twist to the meal. The mac and cheese was a hit with the kids, bursting with delicious flavors. The restaurant offers excellent outdoor seating options, perfect for enjoying a pleasant meal. Inside, the atmosphere is cozy and comfortable, creating a welcoming dining experience. I highly recommend making reservations on busy nights, as the restaurant tends to get crowded. The staff was friendly and attentive, and the prices were reasonable, making it an all-around fantastic choice for a satisfying meal.

Very good food, friendly, efficient staff. Very little waiting time. Cool vibe. Would recommend to make homemade fries for the dishes serving fries, it would enhance those even more. A real good end to a long first leg on our road trip.

Very nice cozy restaurant. I enjoyed the fireplaces and the old style house. They have a nice selection of wines. With great service. We went for supper and enjoyed some mouth watering chops served with mash potatoes. The food was presented beautifully and dessert was also very nice.

We went for supper after a long drive. The restaurant was full with a lovely outside eating area, and a small playground. The waitstaff were attentive, the food came swiftly and tasted fantastic. We ordered pizzas for the kids which went down a treat, and my chicken salad was lovely. The cocktails could be improved but the food made up for it. Definitely recommend it!

Lovely little spot with shop connected. We sat on the stoep. Interesting Karoo menu. The marrow bones were a first for us! Really enjoyed that. The springbok carpaccio tasted nice, but was more cooked and thickly sliced than expected. The service excellent. Definitely worth a visit.
