We sat outside, which was very pleasant and had wraps which were well prepared, bursting with filling and served with a smile. We were a bit disappointed with the trip through Hankey and Patensie but the meal, atmosphere, service and setting made up for it....More

Dave, Thank you for your kind review. PS: Although we know what you mean with the trip through Hankey (and we agree) we must just say that most small town in SA is going backward, but this is not the case in the Gamtoos Valley....More

Description
Padlangs is located 7.5km from Patensie on the R331, en route to the Baviaanskloof Wilderness Area, and located in the tranquil Gamtoos Valley. In September 2016 we moved to our brand new premises (500m from our old location). We now have a water splashpad, giant garden chess set, play area for children with a bike track, outside shower for cyclists, and a stunning view of the Gamtoos Valley. Great Food is still on the menu. #Slowfood #Slowzone #Countryfeeling
