We had muscles, bruscheta, caeser salad duck, oxtail and springbok shank. All fabulous and falling off the bone. Lovely warm and cosy restaurant. Great service.

This restaurant is easy to miss if you a driving along the main road in Gansbaai. Very interesting decor of sheet music and old newspapers on the walls which can keep your interest for a good length of time. We chose to have lunch in the garden which is a lovely relaxing venue away from the main road traffic. Excellent... More

Keith was the most amazing host. I don't think my husband and I have been to a restaurant with such a friendly and helpful manager. The food was delicious and the wine also. We would most definitely recommend it to other people.

We were recommended here by our hosts and we weren't disappointed. The muscles and prawns were the best we have tasted, you could tell that they were fresh. At the table we were sat on was a painting of lilies signed by 'Venus 1990'. I asked the waiter the history as I know a Venus (artist) from our hometown in... More

We enjoyed a very pleasant lunch hre in the conservatory area on a breezy warm summers day. It was quiet but the waitress was charming, the food fresh and the wine reasonably priced. The best piece of Kingklip we had on our holiday.

As the title says, I've never been in such place like Rosemary's. We sit outside and enjoyed the view of the beautiful garden kept in the backyard. The mussels were great as the service, very kind people.
