We popped in for dinner enroute to Kruger Park. Wholesome food, well presented, excellent service and lovely old world ambience, in a relaxed atmosphere. Owner also introduced himself which was a nice gesture.

I visited JC's in March driving down to Cape Town and had an awesome and warm evening. The food was wholesome and well prepared, I would recommend anyone to stay next door and eat at JC's. I will certainly be staying again someday!👍😀

My second time here when traveling from CT to JHB. I was greeted by the owner who welcomed me to each person at the bar. Felt at home... I recommend the chops. I've had them both times. Karoo lamb at its finest.
