It’s a sweet spot down a dusty road for a lovely relaxed lunch. It is quaint with rustic interior , a little deli shop and even some donkeys and horses outside . The menu is largely Mexican themed but there are also other options like...salads and calamari . They also serve a beer tasting platter for those who want some samplers. But note that service is VERY slow and they even say on the menu it will take an hour . It did . But it’s a fun spot with love;y food so worth a visit .More

What an absolute gem! Had dinner here whilst in Tulbagh, on a short breakaway from CT. It was recommended to us by a local as having many vegetarian options as both my husband and I are non-meat eaters. Wow! The food was absolutely delicious, with...massive portions! My husband and I have very healthy appetites and even we could not finish our meals 😊 Restaurant has a great ambiance, and service is impeccable. I'd rate this place as the best restaurant in Tulbagh, and we tried the top 3 on TripAdvisor in 2 days. Highly recommended.More

What a wonderful place to take a break. The seats in the garden look simple, but the view, the food and the wine make it a luxurious experience. The menu already states that the preparation of the food takes some time, but the quality was...well worth it. The service was friendly which made the visit even more enjoyable.More

After hiking all morning, we were dirty and tired and very hungry. Obiqua Cafe was the prefect place for lunch. The food was great and nobody seemed to care about our disheveled state.

Absolutely a little gem in the middle of nowhere. Owner came to greet us already in the parking lot as we were early. Nice menu and good food. They do say in advance it may take 30-45 minutes as they make all fresh …. But...it was worth the wait. We loved our visit and will certainly go back.More

We stopped here for a quick drink. The owners are making an effort to attract people to this farm and restaurant and should get credit for this. Accommodation is available and one should call the owners if you want to do a beer tasting.
