Some of the nicest food I’ve had in a while and definitely the nicest we’ve had during or trip to South Africa so far.
Lovely little restaurant with a fire blazing, nice atmosphere and excellent staff.
The menu had so much to chose from - lots of seafood, traditional South African dishes as well as things like beef fillet, dick breast and ribs. There were also lots of great specials that weren’t on the menu that I wanted to order so many things
We went for the kudu curry and the bobotie which were both beautiful. Really tasty food and very generous portions too.
Would really recommend this place, you won’t be disappointed!

We were recommended this restaurant from the host at the b&b we were staying at. And this place did not disappoint. The restaurant is a cute converted Victorian house with the theme still in tact. We were greeted at the door by our waiter. He was very knowledgeable about the menu and provided great recommendations including the chef's specials. He also provided lots of tips about tourist things to do on the Garden Route and in cape Town. The food was exquisite and tasteful. We even tried the crocodile for the first time as a starter. The portions were of a good size and we left both very full and very happy. We thoroughly recommend this restaurant to others.

Best recommendation we received. 2 nights in Gansbaii and we came here both times because the food was incredible! Amazing service by Keith who catered for all dietary requirements and would highly recommend asking for the specials of the day! Keith also provided amazing recommendations for the area!

We arrived on a cold, story night and were greeted by an incredibly friendly host. We ordered and felt like were in someone's dining room not a restaurant. The food was superbly presented. The flavors were divine. Dessert was homemade. We will definitely be back when in Gaansbaai.

Having diner at Thyme at Rosemary's was an experience I will not easily forget. I took guests with me and their 6 year old daughter who lived on fast food, tried everything that we ordered and has decided that fast food is not nice anymore. So thank you Rosemary for setting such a high standard. The food was wonderful and the staff are amazing. Thank you
