All reviews chicken pie bobotie slow roasted lamb malva pudding lemon sponge karoo food own wine delicious home cooked food home cooking typical karoo quirky restaurant no corkage host and hostess unique experience limited menu food was amazing book in advance
It had very good reviews but we got a mixed reaction from locals. Very small dining area and eccentric hosts, but the background music was very pleasant.
The owners had warned us when booking that it was cash only and that it wasn't licenced so...we had to bring our own wine.
Menu only has three items on it, slow roasted Karoo Lamb, Bobotie or Chicken Pie. The Karoo Lamb was good, but my Bobotie was average. I have had a lot better. Servings are big and we were offered seconds.
The highlight was the shaed malva pudding and ice cream, followed by a walk home stargazing at the incredible night sky.
Wouldn't be my first choice when I next visit Prince AlbertMore
Great food, tasty and well-cooked. Talked into the Karoo Platter - lamb, bobotie and chicken pie. Interesting venue. Limited size, so intimate. Unfortunately, fellow guests contribute to and detract from the experience. Yesterday, not so entertaining.
It was like sitting down to dinner at my mom’s. Pure good tasty homemade food with huge portions. You will have to book in advance, as “Karoo Kombuis” is very popular and does not seat many guests. No license - so bring your own wine....Also no credit card facility - only cash. Well worth having a meal there.More
A must visit place when you are in Prince Albert. A great South African dining experience. Tasty meals and great flavor..they only have 3 main course menu that you can have it all in one plate, chicken pie, bobotie and slow roast lamb...they all great...taste but I love the Bobotie the most! ..not to forget the malva pudding to end your dinner! Although it was loadshedding when we had our dinner but we had a great time ! Thank you!!More
From the moment you enter you are whisked away to a completely unique experience, one that I’m sure you won’t find anywhere else in the world. Food that is top restaurant quality but gives you the nostalgia and comfort and your grandmothers and mothers cooking...is what is presented to you, a hearty portion that is so good that eventually you find yourself looking at an empty plate, but don’t worry, there is dessert to tie the evening together in a neat little bow. Our three patrons prove that there are still good people in this world. They are the most welcoming and friendly people that make you feel right at home. Nothing is too much too ask. What a fantastic evening.More
Lovely little hole in the wall restaurant that serves home cooked Karoo meals! They serve only a few dishes - this is not your place if you want grand variety. Come here if you are looking for proper Karoo home cooking. No fuss, no flair...but lots of flavour. Loved it. A must.More
