We went for dinner st haricots last Friday night. Very good meal. Unfortunately every time we go there, there's something not available. Their fillet is normally one of the best things on the menu, but alas last week no fillet and the rump was very ordinary. I had a mellanzane which was absolutely delicious and my friend had a burger... More

Came down for the Science festival in Grahamstown on Monday, had lunch at this restaurant. Warm welcome from the waiter, Sim. He sat us down, explained the menu and recommended the burger and harvest table for in case we were in a hurry even though he was busy. Best service, not just our table but others as well, I noticed... More

Our niece took us here on our first night in Grahamstown. We thoroughly enjoyed our dinner and the service was very good. We do suspect that one of our party may have had a bad prawn in her pasta as she was very ill for the next four days but we are not sure - it could have been something... More

The restaurant is situated in the French Quarter where you will find lovely buildings. There is a lovely covered outside space with tables and inside is well decorated and modern. The food was superb, the staff and service excellent. A great choice of gin and tonics too.

I stayed in Grahamstown on a research trip during and after the 2015 National Arts Festival. Haricots was the scene of some great meals in my month there. Travelling alone and working to your own itinerary both in and out of Festival time meant I got to go to Haricots solo and in groups. The solo experience was really nice... More

Visited Haricots twice during our stay in Grahamstown. Were attracted by the fresh decor and outside seating area. During first visit service was really slow, even though there were very few people. Second time around service was much better. We thought that lunch menu options were very limited. And did not really get the "deli" part.... There was a table... More

I had a lovely lunch here. The waitress was friendly and the owner made regular check ups to see if all was well. A small lunch menu that had a few options not available, although they did have substitutes for these options. The portion size is very substantial. Neat presentation and very tasty. I found the prices to be reasonable... More

One of the best places in town if only for their bakery. The service could be better though. Also it would be helpful if they shared their menus on their social media so those of us with a special diet can see the options before coming there

One of the better places in grahamstown to have a meal. Waiters could be more friendlier though. But otherwise it was great and the cupcakes are the most amazing ever!

Haricots is one of Grahamstown's gems. The decor, ambience, food and service is all just great. The restaurant is located in the social hub of the gorgeous university town. As part of The French Quarter it shares its premises with a wonderful flower shop, deli and gift shop - Voila! A definite must for your visit list.

Thank Sue S
