My mom and I spent the night in Prins Albert on a road trip through the Karoo. This restaurant was recommended on various websites. The setting is quaint and eccentric at the same time. Denise and her husband have converted 2 rooms in their house...More

We specially wanted to have Karoo lamb and Denise the owner didn't disappoint with her extremely delicious and excellent slow-roasted lamb, accompanied by veggies, rice and potato, at a very good value. Highly recommended ! They also have Bobotie and other typical Karoo food.

A delicious meal cooked and served by Denise. The bobotie and slowroasted lamb were superb. Bring your own wine no corkage. A cozy little place with outside seating on the stoep. Highly recommended - very reasonable prices

Go to the Karoo kombuis to get real Karoo food at affordable prices. The hosts are delightful, colourful and friendly. The interior makes you think way back then when you still had to wear a hat to go out for dinner. Glad we do not...More
