Description: At the Black Oystercatcher Restaurant, we live by the season. We serve fresh produce that grows in our own garden as the seasons dictate. As a result, we offer a fresh dining experience, set in a relaxed country atmosphere. Here fresh food, complimenting our boutique wines, is prepared to order and enjoyed at leisure. The seasons also determine the mood at this Cape Agulhas restaurant: the refreshing sea breeze will cool you down in summer, or enjoy our cozy log fires in the winter months.

“Delicious food in gorgeous setting!”
Reviewed 9 June 2016

My family and I came to Black Oystercatcher for lunch on the day after our wedding. The staff were very accomodating for a large group and gave us a glass of champagne on the house. This was very special. The setting outside on the patio is very peaceful. There is a wonderful view.

The food is simply delicious and fresh. I personally had the steak pan that came with fresh bread and a salad. It was very decadent, All people in our party enjoyed the lunch. The desserts were also fantastic, especially the grenadilla meringue with basil. YUM!

“A frequent lunch venue”
Reviewed 23 May 2016 via mobile

We love going to Black Oystercatcher. Their menu is small and concise and offers enough variety. The food always prepared fresh. Do try the steak pan and their cheese and meat platter. Not too impressed with the thai prawn and chicken curry it lacks in taste and enough praens but will give it a second try. Wine excellent.

Hi Chutzpah78

Thank you for stopping by the Black Oystercatcher Restaurant, and so glad you enjoyed the steak pan and our platters. Sorry you didn't feel the Thai prawn and chicken curry was up to standard, though. We'll be sure to feed back to our kitchen team, to ensure that in future our curry meets our usually very high standards.

“Great place to vivit.”

This place takes a bit of driving to get to but is definitly worth the drive. Excellent service, food and great wines they produce themselves. An Overberg treasure.

“Lovely food and wine”
Reviewed 9 May 2016 via mobile

We tried the plough and platter - oh wow, its enormous, tasty and pretty healthy ....all in one. Plus goes well with their rose wine. Kids could also run around a lot before wolfing down their meal
Very recommended, but no oysters on the menu!!

Hi Hislopworldtour, thanks for joining us at the Black Oystercatcher Restaurant. And so glad you enjoyed the food (and the kids could build up an appetite before the meal). Sorry about the oysters - but we'll have plenty at our December Sauvignon Blanc and Oyster Festival. We hope to see you there!
