Beautiful setting of the restaurant and the food is just fantastic with generous portion sizes. Hours can go by just sitting outside and enjoying the views.

I don't know what we did to deserve the lovely secluded table for two my hubby and I were led to by the friendly waiter at O's restaurant! But it was a treat all the same! The food was well prepared and, as a city dweller, I could not believe how reasonable the prices were! Extremely good value for money!... More

What an amazing restaurant and experience. We took a chance and went without a booking, lucky for us they had space. Bookings are recommended though. Friendly staff and waiters. Service was good for such a big and busy place. Food portions are more than generous, there was no space left for dessert. Reasonably priced. Would definetly visit again. Thanks O's

We arrived for Sunday lunch with no booking and although very busy we were given a table inside with the promise of one in the beautiful garden overlooking the Vaal river, which we got before our meals arrived. With an extensive menu of South African favourites and a comprehensive list of international dishes, I choose the 'Porra' Steak, which was... More

We tried the skaapstertjies (lamb tails) and really loved it! The food and service was excellent. Plus add a relaxed setting next to the river and you have a winner.

Stumbled across O's restaurant whilst driving around Parys early afternoon. The 'parking lady' advised it would be fine to take our small dog in with us. Warmly greeted by reception staff who advised Die Plek cocktail bar by the river would be ideal for a relaxing drink. Sat overlooking the river under the trees. Very relaxing.

We had a romantic dinner at the ever so popular O's, and the staff really went out of their way to make the dinner so special. We had a beautifully set table with an amazing view of the river and from arrival, we only received friendly service. The food was outstanding and we will definitely visit them again.

What a lovely setting amongst the trees and garden of the old converted house. The tables are scattered outside with a view of the river. We had fantastic service from a young student working on weekends to help pay for Potch Uni. She was on the ball and friendly. The food is a very generous serving, and at a good... More
