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.

Our meal was cooked to perfection. We had Oxtail soup and Greek Salad for starters. Both were delicious. The Greek salad was a more sophisticated version than would be served in Greece, but the Kalamata olives and Feta cheese were authentic and very tasty. We both had lamb for our main course. The lamb cutlets were seasoned to perfection and... More

Great ambience, small but excellent selection of food on the menu. Food was very well prepared and truly memorable. Perfect selection of great South African dishes. Only one waitress on duty, and the place was quite full, but she handled all the tables with ease. The owner made time to speak to each table, and helped with serving.

Thank HookyBren
