Super service, friendly and efficient. Food pretty good! My burger patty was amazing, avocado slightly green though. Chicken salad was delicious and a fantastic portion. Worth the trip!

We made a booking. When we arrived, literally nobody helped us. We got our own menus but had no waiter. We finally asked for a waiter... that was the eordt part. Slow service. Waited for two hours for our food. Food was cold. Never again.

Having been given rave reviews, and driven 250kms to enjoy the experience, our arrival was aesthetically in line with our expectations. Sadly, once our order had been placed, we had to wait an hour in spite our many enquiries. The food arrived and we still...had to request cutlery! To our horror, our serving was cold. It appears that our order was placed on the side and “forgotten about”! Senior staff were indifferent to our complaint. Very disappointedMore

We visited during late summer and enjoyed a late lunch this lovely ‘padstal’. We were welcomed warmly and seated in the lush garden. With a beautiful view of the Gamtoos Valley, we savoured delicious dishes - fragrant and abundant. The dishes were attractively presented and...ample in portion. Cold water with ice for our dog too! The service was outstanding Ideal for a fabulous meal.More

We spent 45 minutes waiting for a waiter who never came after being seated.Two tables next to us experienced the same non existing service. Not even a drink could be ordered. One person dressed in a waiter outfit pounced around like a butterfly and point...blank refused to get anyone anything promising a waiter would attend upon us. We eventually left with the two tables following to experience the best service and lunch at the nearby Tolbos restaurant. Try for yourself if you don't believe me. Alternatively just go to Tolbos restaurant and have a super great experience.More

Friendly lively staff. Great food and floats and coffee (the milkshake machine was unfortunately broken). Pleasant play area for kids. Nice sweets and other farm/homemade products in a small shop...not overcrowded at all with stuff. Parking can be a problem....maybe they can ask the church...directly next to the stall for usage of their big parking space when really busy. They don't have any problem to serve adults from the kiddies menu if that adult is not so hungry. Thanks for this. Come early because around lunch it is really popular with families with kids due to the big area where kids can play safely will parents can relax with something cool while keeping an eye over them. Nice area with water streams coming from below for the kids to play in. Big grass area.More

The place is funky, with some funny decors displayed. Much of a family vibe. The food is very traditional south African... I had a venison pie with salad. Excellent and in good portion (it was my dinner as well). I had the chocolate cake for...desert - not my thing, but might be good for other people. Excellent service...More

Beautiful setting and open spaces for kids. Service was okay. Food was really disappointing. Food was cold and one of the biggest sins for any decent restaurant is the use of pre prepared chicken wings. I am sure you guys can do better than that.

When travelling in this area, this is a good place to grab something to eat. There are lots of save parking and a big playground for kids. The food was good, but the restaurant was under-staffed and it took a long time for the food...to come. However, the staff was friendly.More
