Possibly some of the best Bobotie I ever had. Family visit while passing through. The burgers were slider sized, and about R 85 each, thus excessively priced. According to my teenage boys, taste was average.

A South African institution. Evita Bezuidenhoudt has been part of the South African comedy scene for decades. Her museum and restaurant are must see places when visiting Darling.

We have seen this artist before and enjoyed his performance so were keen to see him on his home ground. We decided to add the lunch option. It was all a little bit disjointed and we didn't really know what the form was or the...More

Apologies for the very late reply. The show does have a fair amount of Afrikaans but they do vary and take a comedic view on global and local politics. We are English speaking and enjoyed the show thoroughly.
