On arrival we were looking for a nice place in Graskop. We entered the restaurant and were not even properly greeted. The "manager guy" came out of nowhere and told us the restaurant is closed en full for dinner. Really really rude manager

The right place for a family diner. Testy classic food but really nice people and service.. I recommend the Bo-Bo tie main dish, at least for EU people.

Our accommodation booked the table in the early afternoon for that Friday evening at 18.30. We were greeted by the owner and shown to a lovely positioned table. The trout and mussel starter was different and delicious, the glass of house white was filled to the brim. The bottle of Shiraz to accompany lamb shank and sirloin steak was excellent.... More

We enjoyed a nice evening at the glasshouse. The food is prepared with care. The owner and his charming waitress provide an informal but efficient service.

Our inn keeper recommended The Glass House and made a reservation for us. Maybe that is why we were treated so well. We were warmly welcomed and served with attention and care. I had the trout and my son had the filet. Both were excellent. With appetizers and drinks, the bill was under R500. The menu has a good variety... More

Absolutely brilliant! The food was excellent with plenty of choice, even for a vegetarian! Probably the best vegi meal that I had in South Africa! Abe is an excellent and entertaining host, who goes out of his way to make sure all is OK. I loved the music and the whole ambience of the place. Would love to visit again.
