Sarah and her team went above and beyond to make our 40th wedding anniversary celebration exceptionally special, the food, wine pairing, the setting and also the personal attention (they knew exactly when to chat and when to leave us be) was fantastic and I will...remember this experience for a long, long time… thank you Sarah and your team.More

Sarah is the most attentive host. The food was of the best quality and wines paired with courses was phenomenal. Her attention to detail is impeccable, venue is exquisite and the quality of dining experience for the price is mind blowing! Well done team. Very...very happy guests!More

Absolutely amazing food and presentation - michelin style chef - but at affordable SA rates. I would highly recommend the chicken wrap - it was delicious. The coffee/latte was also really good and served as it should be with expresso on the side and long...spoons for the tall glass mugs - attention to detail that a lot of restaurants worldwide do not seem to get right - so visit Post House Clarens it will not disappoint.More

We had the most delicious meal at The Posthouse. I could most definitely recommend a meal here. The Lamb rump was incredible. Beautifully presented and flavors were amazing. Our waiter was most pleasant and got the perfect balance of attention without being overdone. And the...Kalua Don Pedro's were one of my best. And the owner was so sweet and attentive.More

What a disaster! Lamb curry - 3 bones with hardly any meat on for R 165.00. Hake fillet was frosen inside and burned outside - tasted like a piece of rubber. Will never go there again!More

The service is good with such pleasant staff. The menu has the regular dishes on offer - nothing different or exciting, but what you get is served nicely & quickly. My sister had a lamb curry which she said was very tasty. At the waiter's...recommendation I had the trout as he said it was a best seller. It was awful - no flavour at all & no amount of salt or lemon helped. We did go back the next day as most of the restaurants in Clarens are closed at the beginning of the week. We ordered rib eye steaks but had to send them back as they did not arrive rare as ordered. The second attempt by the kitchen arrived as we wanted. For a quick meal it is worth going as the prices are good. I would not go for a special occasion thoughMore

The Post House will be open on Monday morning and not necessary to book. Clarens is normally very quiet on a Monday morning and the Post House has ample space.
