We arrived on a cold and wet Sunday. Love the rustic decor and the boerekoffie was just what we needed. The touch of metal cups makes it more unique. The fireplace was roaring and the female owner/manager very friendly and engaged with all the guests....More

Quaint little restaurant with friendly staff and great food. I had the local fried bread that was a new and tasty experience. Definitely a place to visit.

Dear Tizaneduplessis We were actually expecting your review after we received a complaint from our manager about a "very rude customer" who basically made a "public scene" and even referred to a coloured couple sitting at the fireplace as "waiters sitting at the fireplace" We...More

Description
Whether you're in Ceres for the cherries at Klondyke, the snow on Matroosberg or in the Koue Bokkeveld, the big-sky beauty of the Tankwa Karoo National Park and the Cederberg or a thrill-seeking day with Ceres Zipslide Adventures, make sure you stop over at Die Tolhuis Restaurant, without doubt the coziest restaurant with the best mountain views in the Ceres area. And if, like welcoming owners Reint and & Karien Grobler, you swear by the wise words of Mahatma Ghandi, "there is more to life than increasing its speed," you can prepare yourself for a mouthwatering 'kuier' that will keep you coming back for more.
