We really enjoyed our food and the atmosphere at the Glass House. The staff were friendly and lots of fun. We were disappointed in the wine choices and were denied when we asked if we could bring our own wine and pay corkage.

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.

He opens for lunch and the again early evening. Graskop is very quiet at night so he generally closes quite early.
