We had a meal here as part of the Karoo Gravel Grinder MTB package, and it was truly delicious! A great mix of Karoo staples, of lamb, cheese and olive etc, but imaginatively put together. We sat outside and it was a lovely way to...More

Karoo kombhuis has been producing the same menu for 20 years in this little time capsule. And those of us who know, hope they will continue for many years. If you are lucky enough to be there when Theunis makes his lamb and feta pie...More

As a local inhabitant, I accompany friends and guests to the Karoo Kombuis throughout the year, and it never disappoints. If you're looking for the real old fashioned Karoo farmer's way of serving roasted leg of lamb with three veg - this is your spot....More
