We were recommended to this place, and it didn’t disappoint. The Young Host, and his girlfriend were very friendly, and attentive. Best burger I’ve had in many years, delicious Wagu beef, and the Craft beer on tap was spot on. We had a great meal...here, and will definitely return.More

This is a definite GO to! The ambiance is absolutely great, the craft beer and food amazing, and impeccable service. Special thanks to Martin and Elain, chef and staff for a memorable evening. We all enjoyed the Bierstro's delicious food (especially the Bierballetjies, and Wagyu...burgers) and the evening was everything we hoped it would be, even more. PS: We found the menu very interesting, especially the burgers called after the local places of interest, very authentic and amusing to say the least!!More

An excellent experience - the service was great and the burgers were top notch! I loved the “Hard Lemonade”, but to start I did a tester of 5 different “On Tap” options - including “Karoo Diesel”

Superb food, good service and attention to detail. The colouring in books for the kids were great. I had the Caesar salad, my wife has the schnitzel and the kids had loaded fries and a burger. My wife and I shared their arancini balls which...were also great. The best was the lemonade for me, refreshing and summery.More

Great little place with the most amazing burgers, it’s been a long time since I’ve had one this good. The local larger from Prince Albert microbrewery also very nice. Very attentive staff and lovely covered area to escape the heat but still have a cool...breeze.More

As a relatively new restaurant/tap room these guys have hit the nail on the head with their own locally brewed beers and freshly made food. It’s an enjoyable environment, a mix of good interior design and Prince Albert style. Staff are welcoming and friendly, it’s...evident they are a tight knit team who take pride in the place. An extensive menu with freshly made food, an excellent burger selection and various specials of the day. not hungry?.. settle in the garden with a drink and watch the weaver birds make their nests and watch the world go by. I honestly can’t recommend this family run establishment enough.. if you find yourself in the heart of the Karoo. ♥️More

Who would have thought that some of the best burgers in South Africa are to be had at a restaurant tucked away at the end of the main street in Prince Albert, a tranquil Karoo town at the foot of the Swartberg Mountains? The options...are varied. Beef, Wagyu Beef, Chicken, and Falafel grilled to perfection. The Swartberg Wagyu burger with mushroom sauce, Bacon, local cheese from Gay's Dairy, a glorious patty, and the usual trimmings is our favourite. All burgers come with hand-cut chips and a delicious onion ring. For those not keen on burgers, there are Karoo lamb chops, steaks, and comfort food dishes. A well thought through wine list is complemented by bespoke craft beer brewed by Martin & co on tap. Perfect for a laid-back meal in a welcoming setting with family and friends. We were hooked from the first bite. To such an extent that Wednesday evenings are for Karoo Bierstro burgers. Every Wednesday! A favourite of locals and visitors, Karoo Bierstro is well worth a visit.More

Great restaurant!! Some of the best burgers you’ll have in South Africa coupled with the craft beer made by the owners.. I had the chicken burger and it was delicious however you have a selection of burgers namely the beef wagyu range which my wife...had and was equally delicious. Add bonus is the craft chili sauce sold by the bottle for the chili sauce lovers.. Definitely worth a stop when In Prince Elbert!More

We liked the setting, ambiance, service and location. But..... , we loved those gourmand hamburgers and home-brewed beers. It's certainly worth stopping there for the delicious victuals.
