We stopped for a light lunch and ordered toasted sandwiches. Home baked bread with perfect filling, cold drinks and friendly service by Crystal. Yum.

Charming place with welcoming and accommodating service. Ostrich fillet was superb, as was the chicken schnitzel. Mississippi pie dessert was a wonderfully decadent ending to a pleasant evening.

We went to this restaurant whilst staying in Calitzdorp. The owner was a very nice man and made you feel very at home Good service However the food was not of great quality I ordered the ribs and they were very dry and not a...lot of flavour. The new potatoes were very garlicy. Great if you like garlic My husband had the ostrich steak and mash potatoes. He said it was nice!! We shared sticky toffee pudding. I think it might have been shop boughtMore

This is a nice, friendly restaurant with well cooked food. The service was a vast improvement on the last restaurant we visited in Calitzdorp - prompt and helpful. The steak was good quality and prepared as requested. It was a quiet evening but we did...not feel rushed.More
