No wonder that each time you pass in front of their door, there is a sign mentionning, "sorry full house". I'm glad I've booked my table, otherwise I would have missed an institution... The decor is funky, the staff and owners supper welcoming and full...of good advise, and the food, homely and served in big quantity. I can say it was a great evening and will definitly come back, when I'm around...More

The waiting staff was extremely friendly and helpful. The food was excellent and freshly prepared. They took a shellfish allergy in to account and accommodated it perfectly

This restaurant offered the best quality food we had during our stay in Dullstroom. The service is very personal and the ambiance and decor makes it a very special place to be. Menu may not be as large as other restaurants but good variety and...reasonably priced. Booking upfront is recommended especially for dinner. Make time and enjoy a good meal in an awesome place.More

Not as good as I had expected. Food was good but certainly not exceptional. Good wholesome food in a convivial atmosphere

Basic fare - nothing incredible - nothing bad. Decor is a bit bizarre and not really to my taste. Service could have been better - visited as a guest of friends but would have chosen another venue if it was up to me.More

Owner run restaurants are simply in a league of their own. Mrs. Simpson's is no exception where Stephen and Bryan with their extremely competent staff will ensure that your visit will be remembered for some time to come. Excellent food and outstanding service made up...for the COVID-19 restrictions. Our bithday dinner was most enjoyable and simply superb - as always!More

Great restaurant and ambiance Very friendly hosts Good food and drink for all We arrived Christmas Eve we were early but still received a warm welcome . The children were accommodated with a kiddies menu . The best dish was the chocolate tort which was...a generous helping with ice cream but my “ Christmas dinner “ pork and lamb with roast potatoes and mint sauce was excellent too !More

Fortunately we booked well ahead for our dinner at this popular restaurant. We were shown to our table on the upper level (try to get one on the ground floor for a better atmosphere) and chose our wine from a good selection on the stairway....We ordered soft shell crab, snails and mussels as starters, all very tasty. For mains we had the stuffed trout, chicken livers and prawns, also well presented and tasty. The creme brûlée was unfortunately not firm under the top crust thoughMore
