I went to Potluck after reading about them on TripAdvisor. Great setting. We got a table at the back and could still see the river. We read that they did have an issue with food availability. We also encountered this problem. Four items on the...More

The potholes were simply amazing to see. We enjoyed soaking in God's amazing work first hand. We found beauty around each corner and continued to be amazed at the beauty that we saw. This is a must see.

We enjoyed our stop at the Boskombuis. The scenery was fantastic and the staff very friendly. We had decent food. Long wait - they helped us out by serving us beer while we waited. The main downside was that the toilet facilities were not working...More

The Potluck Boskombuis is a wonderful place to stop, tucked away inba small valley next to a river. The food was exceptional and so was the service. We really had a good feast and thoroughly enjoyed the surroundings.

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....
