The place is beautiful, spacious, clean and the staff is very friendly. We enjoyed our room, the breakfast was a lovely variety to choose from, and Sue was attentive to all patrons. I will definitely visit the place again.

Went here for breakfast with family and what a treat. Decent menu and excellent meals. Go and sit take in the atmosphere while sipping a cuppacino and enjoying the breakfast. Family friendly and great service.

We stopped at 278 for dinner and absolutely loved this little restaurant. Their cover photo needs to be updated as it looks completely different and is beautifully decorated. The food was excellent and the staff were so friendly. We will definitely be back. Do yourself...a favour and pop in.More

Thank you for posting such a great review Lisa - we will update our photo and look forward to seeing you again.
We visited the restaurant for dinner on the recommendation of a friend. The food was absolutely outstanding and the wait wrong staff and owner make every effort to make your dining experience as memorable as possible!
The food is just like a home cooked meal...should be. I will note however, they do warn that the food can take a while to prepare. We were there on relatively busy night but nothing compared to in season. If you are impatient when it comes to receiving food the maybe this isn’t the place for you.
Food pp with alcohol - R220
Ambience - perfectly suited to the little town of Clarens
Service - friendly and efficient
Would we go back, absolutely!More

Thank you for such a lovely review Sephus - we enjoyed the evening too and I will pass your compliments on to the staff!
We had dinner at the restaurant. The food was very good and my Oxtail was excellent. The wine list is poor and we found the music intrusive rather that softly in the background. The service was good and friendly.More
