Nicholas, our B&B owner, suggested Karoux and we were able to walk there for dinner. The restaurant is small and the decor simple. The food is simply delicious. After having the soufflé, we know why it can't be taken off the menu. The kingclip was prepared to perfection - light and flakey. Our friends' meals were also skillfully prepared. We... More

You just don't expect such amazing food and friendly service in a small town in the middle of nowhere. The food never disappoints and the staff/owners are only too happy to accommodate. I don't know how they do it all, and with a smile. The wine list is awesome, showcasing some of the local wonders. As a vegetarian my choice... More

Half of me wants to keep this gem to myself, because the food is so good, and I want to go back next year. The attention to detail is spot on and my gluten free goodies were amazing. Wel lworth the drive.

Honestly don't think that writing about this amazing place can do it the justice it deserves - the best best meal I've had in months - the staff outstanding, best wine list and choices just too too hard - it's had to be 20 out of 10 - thanks so very much - l

Freshly cooked good food from a small menu. The service was friendly and helpful and it is just a small restaurant. When we went it was full with locals as well as tourists, always a good sign if the locals use it. A delightful evening.

Karoux, a great little 'Chef' Restaurant tucked away in McGregor south of Robertson, in the guide books it's a great country Restaurant, it certainly is in fact all round Excellent comes straight to mind. Although the Restaurant is located on the Main Street of McGregor it's hard to see from the street as the sign is set back and parallel... More

We were a group of 8 friends having Sunday lunch together. Most of us haven't seen one other for years and we chose Karoux to have our reunion. We were seated outside on the shady verandah. Among us, we've tried pretty much everything on the menu, wines included. Even though the menu is quite small, it's carefully designed with a... More

We enjoyed a memorable dinner at Karoux on the terrace on a warm Summer evening. The food was the best that we have eaten in the Robertson area. The menu apparently changes frequently. We thoroughly enjoyed starters of cheese soufflé, and calamari/chorizo/gnocchi/peas; followed by main courses of confit duck leg and poached cob/tempura prawn/ chilli ponzu sauce and garlic mayonnaise....
