We found the turn off right from the main road. Drove over the little river/stream, parked and found a path to the small restaurant by the riverside. They bring in the food each day, no electricity. Cash only. When they run out of food, they...More

We visited Potluck around 2 o'clock and it was not that busy. The scenery is beautiful and we really loved the T bone steak. If you can, you should really visit it!

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 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....
