Traveling by bicycle, I was very pleased to come across this little oasis and get some respite from the heat. There are all sorts of curios for sale and lots of antique furniture and other items. Meals are inexpensive. I had a burger with salad, a cold fruit juice, and a delicious slice of cheesecake for 89 Rand. The lady... More

Although the setting is lovely (this is a working farm), I wasn't blown away by the meal (had the beef pie; it was incredibly dry and more like biltong). What was a plus was the wide range of sparkling grape beverages. They do not serve alcohol here. Also, I'm not at all religious and the lady serving us was a... More

Limited items in menu available, and a long wait for average dry food. A disappointing result after seeing so many positive reviews on TripAdvisor

Once you pass through Barrydale on route to Ladismith there is not much else besides the Hot springs or Ronnies Sex Shop, if you are looking for a stop.The springs were not accepting day visitors when we passed by, so we opted to stop at Algerynskraal. This is a classic old Karoo styled farmhouse that has been turned into a... More

We came across this place just after Ladismith. The proprietor of this establishment was a man of trust which is rare these days. The goods to buy are original and well priced, there was a problem with the card machine and the owner insisted we take our purchases and transfer the money later. This is amazing service. The strawberry chili... More

We visited this restaurant - padstal a few times and always left a lot later than planned. Really good country food and home made cakes and tarts. Nice gifts and goodies and great paintings by local artists at very reasonable prices. Preferably book for Sunday lunch as the locals all gather to feast. Service is prompt and friendly in this...

We had lunch there, and the food was tasty and freshly prepared. The gifts that they sell were original, hand made and well priced. Well worth a visit!

What a wonderful dining experience we had when visiting Algerynskraal Padstal on the Route 62 between Ladismith and Barrydale. Friendly and helpful management and staff. Interior is delightfully decorated with a blend between old farmhouse and new furnishings. The menu offers a wide variety of mouth-watering options at most affordable rates. After a appetizing starter we enjoyed a wonderful traditional... More

Stopped for mid-morning coffee on the recommendation of the bed and breakfast we had stayed in the night before (Wolverfontein). Spotted the milk tart and had to try it - outstanding! Can wander through the house - an old "ostrich palace" and browse the well stocked shop. Did not have lunch but will do so next time we pass through... More
