We ate here on a weekday evening in Feb 2016, two of us and our 3 year old daughter. There's easy parking at the back of the restaurant. The staff were friendly and the food was good hearty Karoo food with plenty of flavour and generous portion sizes.

Claudine went the extra mile when I said the beer wasn't quite cold enough on a hot 37C humid day so she placed a few beers in a ice bucket! The steak was cooked to perfection, thank you! There is a members club with a snooker room.

Had a most enjoyable lunch sitting in the garden of this restaurant right opposite the famous "Groot Kerk" - how peaceful. I ordered the Phyllo Spinach Roll and my Hubby the Neptune Sandwich - both meals very very good and not badly priced atoo all. Service good. Will definitely be back here when in Graaff Reinett again.

We visited this restaurant 3 years ago and had a very good experience. This time around we tried lamb as it is the staple of the Karoo. I had the loin chops and my wife the chank. Both were excellent choices. The food was well prepared, with veggies and starch, and nicely presented. The wine list have a good selection... More

Our meal at The Coldstream Restaurant was very good. The variety to choose from on the menu is quite large as there is also vegetarian options. The décor is good and it was lovely sitting outside on the verandah on a warm, balmy evening enjoying an excellent meal and some good South Africa wine.

Beautiful restaurant, relaxing atmosphere! Lamb shank was perfect, wine selection is very good! Definitely worth recommending to others. PS: The chilli choc sauce is a little on the hot side XD

We went to this restaurant because we were told they did good steaks !! We were disappointed because although the steaks were big they were rather on the tough side !! The service was good although most people seemed to be outside probably because they were smokers . Maybe we should have tried the lamb rather than the steak? ?

What a lovely restaurant with an interesting history. Food was impeccable - they had a really good selection on the menu including some vegetarian options. We had the T-bone and the lamb chops with mashed potato and veg! Both were among the best we have ever had. Service was very friendly.
