We phoned ahead and asked chef to prepare prawns for one of us and the rest of us would order off the board of the day The prawns were a generous portion and expertly prepared The starters of eastern origin were tasty and full of flavour The Black pepper chicken was deliciousness on a plate The lamb curry while tasty was a slight tad tough but that may be due to the extreme drought that is being experienced in the area The chocolate cake and opera cake were both rich and a fitting end to a splendid meal

Stopped in for a hearty lunch of Moroccon pancakes with salsa and preserve, and beef and lentil soup. Delicious, satisfying and brilliant spot to stop and have a chat over a meal.

I did not know what to expect - what a wonderful surprise. Nothing special just table and chairs outside - under the Pepper Tree - that made it so special. The food on a black board what is available for the day and the prices very good. We had a 3 course meal and every dish was special. The service is done by the owner and the chef. Thank you very much

Gary Lawson cooks beautiful South East Asian and Global dishes packed with flavor. Try the snoek fish cakes and one the divine curries. Decadent chocolate cake, ask for a scoop of apricot ice-cream, seals the experience.

Not licensed so take your own and spend a lovely afternoon in the west orchards of Calitzdorp

Best of all there is a little bookshop attached with a good collection of very readable titles.
