What a great find. Genuinely local cuisine, cooked on open fires and wood fired stove. In fact no electricity or gas is used or available. Perfect location , clear of the main road and traffic noise, close to crystal clear mountain stream. Very busy so...More

Extraordinary location with simple food. Slow but that’s okay this is African time. Fantastic place to stop and have a traditional lunch with a great view of the river and surrounds.

What a stunning place this turned out to be. As soon as you turn of the main road onto the gravel road you immediately cross the beautiful "Treur river" with all its rock covered marvel. We stopped for some pictures and to just breath in...More

Food was nice but the star was really the riverside setting. It was cool and had a beautiful brightly painted cliff across the stream.

The word is out on the town and this little "Boskombuis" is creating wonders and just doing something completely different. Welcomed at the humble boma entrance you are escorted into an unforgettable traditional South African dining experience combined with the most splendid views and lazy, no-rush ambiance. Tucked right up against a gigantic round boulder, is a log fire where most of the food is prepared. To the front, pulling the children with an unseen magnetism, is the Treur river, with its crystal clear water, gently flowing a mere stone's throw away from the dining area. The menu itself is short and to the point, with open flame grilled steaks taking the centre stage. Apparently local "potjie" specialities are prepared over weekends. You need to plan a little in advance, the weather can change easily in this part of the world...do take some warm clothes or a blanket. Potluck Boskombuis has no credit card facilities or mobile phone coverage, take enough cash to cater for a blissful outdoor experience that will leave everlasting memories and make one want to visit again and again....
