One of the most scenic and best spots we have been to! Having travelled to many countries abroad, I still believe South Africa has so much to offer! An absolute hidden gem that will see us again!

The food and setting here are just incredible. Great friendly service, very reasonably prices meals cooked to perfection (the steak was delicious). The setting completes it right on the river with a wicked deck and cold beers

This is the most unique restaurant with absolutely wonderful food. Don't be deterred by the crazy drive way (we were parked next to a Mercedes and several Audis) as there is a hidden gem that you will not want to miss. The only thing that...More

Wow, what a place. It is beside a river and reached by going down a very rough track. The location is wonderful. There is no power there so everything is cooked or heated over an open fire. If we didn’t have other places to visit...More

What an amazing find. Randomly decided to try it seeing the sign off the highway and will never regret doing so. First, the setting over the Treur River was stunning. Second, the service was exceptionally warm and friendly. We were running low on rand and...More

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....
