Excellent tasting menu - you really are taken on an experience of tastes and textures, but honest, good food too - nothing pretentious. Saeedah (spelling?) was a great host; efficient, attentive and knowledgeable, without trying to oversell the food/taste experience - just right! My wife...and I normally order different options to share even more tastes - not this time - she didn't want to share hers - too good! Don't overthink this one or read too many reviews - just go and enjoy!More

My wife and I were at Homespun on Saturday, 11 May for dinner. The fine dining experience we had at Homespun was really wonderful. The service of the lady who explained to us the items on the menu at each instance is to be commended....Apart from that, the food itself is at a really high level with an explosion of flavours in your mouth. Personally, I enjoyed that little experience of the Electric Daisy which made the evening even more special because it was a fun one to have such an interesting feeling on the tongue. I loved everything on the menu and Homespun is really value for money. Nevertheless, I have a small preference for the agnelotti which was amazing. With each spoon of the agnelotti, you have such a variety of flavours which are really good. Maybe the fish was not totally up to our expectation but was nevertheless good. As a humble suggestion, a stronger lighting is welcome. Though, I guess the dimmed light is part of the style of the restaurant, for us, our personal preference would have been stronger lighting to enjoy fully the view of the items on the plates. However, this is just our personal opinion and that did not distract us from having a wonderful time at the restaurant. To sum up, Homespun is fine dining with value for money. It is a must try experience which you will fully enjoy. Do not get distracted by the environment of the restaurant. As soon as you start tasting the food, you will be in a completely different world and you would love it.More

I was invited by friends to celebrate my birthday at my favourite fine dining restaurant in Blouberg! Two of my friends have not visited this restaurant before because they live in the UK. It was an amazing evening. The food was extremely well cooked! This...chef knows how to play with flavours which balances! Clever dishes and every element worked together! Epicurean flair with thought provoking aromatic flavours. My friends were astonished with the quality of the dishes. This is sublime cooking!! The service was immaculate and attentive but not intrusive. My birthday dinner and bubbles were on the house!! Massive thank you for your generosity❤️🔥More

I am a regular client of Homespun by Matt since 2016 and we do bring foreign visitors there every year, as we loved it. Until a week ago....I booked a table for 5 for the 5th of January 2024 well in advanced and paid a...deposit . Unfortunately , the 5th person had an emergency and couldn’t join. While settling the bill, we were advised by the waitress and the manager that they will not deduct the deposit for the 5th person as he didn’t show off. This is extremely unusual and a very disappointing behavior, as we do visit many restaurants in the region and it's first time that we faced this challenge, dispute our kind explanation. Before leaving, we asked the owner to call me , so we can explain and express our concern, however this did not happen either. We might never visit the restaurant again and it is a real shame how they will be loosing their regular clientele. I not recommend it either.More

My wife and I booked a table at Homespun on the last day of our trip to South Africa. The only seats available were on the counter next to the window, but it didn't really matter. Surrounded by fast foods, sports bars, and pizzerias, Homespun...really stands out. You don't really expect to find such quality in a place like this. Homespun's formula is a 5-course tasting menu with 2 or 3 options for the starter, the main course, and the dessert. This allowed us to try almost everything. As with all tasting menus, you end up preferring one or the other course, but everything was well prepared, very creative, tasty, and with top-quality ingredients. Special mentions to the beef and to the chef's interpretation of the cheesecake. Professional, smiling, friendly, and efficient service. The wine list is only made up of South African wines, but with a broad selection. Maybe high by local standard prices get very reasonable when expressed in euros or sterling. At 67 £ for 2 persons (including a glass of wine and a cocktail), that's a remarkable value for money. Homespun is definitely a must-go in a trip to Cape Town.More

For us, Homespun was the best restaurant during our entire trip to South Africa! We have had dinner at many different fine dining restaurants (perhaps with better known names) but for us this was outstanding. The combination of excellent food, a great location and the...amazing and lovely service was perfect. We opted for the tasting menu with the half glass wine-pairing. BTW: what a great idea to offer 1/2 glass wine pairing and it was also possible to only get white wine pairing. Such an offer cannot be taken for granted. The Menu was truly amazing - every single course was such a taste explosion and the wine pairing fitted perfectly! Thank you so much for this experience and a great evening. Next time we will definitely come back!More

Were fortunate to get a reservation from the hostess who notified us of a cancelation. She was so persistent in calling us to get us in and we really appreciated it. Very talented chef with a very creative menu. It is many courses with two...choices for each course. Really enjoyed it. I had the duck main course and my husband had the steak for the other main, delicious. This is a 2 hour dining experience with great South African local wines paired with each course. Very enjoyable. A definite try if in Blouberg.More

The Homespun experience is unforgettable : from the waitress' knowledge and guidance of food choices, the out of this world presentation of the dishes (moving food, swirling/steaming cocktails & dishes, unusual palate cleansers, etc, etc) so many taste sensations. It's a visual and sensory experience...not to be missed.More

Same menu for more than one year, most probably two years, tough, low grade meat, dusty decorations, all in all a tacky feeling. Too much senseless babbling by waitrons. Too many flavours on one plate. The original chef has opened another venue and clearly neglects...his original enterprise. Canned corn was also part of the one dish! Not fine dining at all! There is nothing that will attract me back. Has become just another Chinese Decorated, tacky place. A matter of B_ll___t baffles brains. The place can do with a good dusting and cleanup.More
