Absolutely loved the place, the food and the people. Awesome play area for the kids, food was fantastic and the service was great. The decor and vintage style rock and roll vibe was awesome. Wouldn't eat anywhere else when in Oudtshoorn!

Food is great, food you find in a normal restaurant. The tripe was excellent, prepared like home food. Service is very poor. Excellent play area for the kids.

The up side is certainly the good prices. I think this is what will keep it as a popular destination. The down side is that even on a quiet day service was slow. The decor is basically the same that you would expect to find...More
