In late february we had the change to try this place. We were not sure what to expect exactly however we read it should be very good.We contacted Altje to book a table for lunch and he responded very fast. The place is a bit remote but quite easy to find with the description you receive after booking. The restaurant... More

After an adventurous tour to get there (due to my failure to read the instructions well..) we had a really lovely lunch. Everythimg but the butter was homemade by the owner, a microbiologist by origin. He has put his knowledge to good use by producing excellent cheeses with Very distinct tastes. The fresh mozarella was a real treat as were... More

If you are a cheese lover, Fynboshoek is a must. The restaurant is a charming gem and part of an operational cheese farm. The four course lunch is made to order , all from scratch with ingredients grown on the farm. The award-winning cheeses are the best cheeses we have ever eaten and boy did we eat! We also opted...

Enjoy Alje's (the owner) award winning home made variety of cheeses and homegrown garden salads on the patio of his homely restaurant. No meat is served and I (who enjoy meat) didn't even miss the absence of meat on the menu. This highly rated restaurant, hidden away near the Storms River mouth, won't disappoint and you will definitely come back... More

My second visit to Fynboshoek Cheese Farm was even more fantastic than the first time. The restaurant's cheese platters, home baked breads and organically grown salads are simply superb. Thank you Alje (owner) for your friendly hospitality.

He informed us that our bread is in the oven. We immediately felt right at home. Alje suggested a Newstead Sauvingnon Blanc from... More

We read about it on Tripadvisor and took a chance last minute to get a booking. While they were fully booked the owner graciously squeezed us in. We did not know what to expect but the setting, the food and the service. Lunch was a set meal, no menu, centered around locally produced cheeses. The meal included a fabulous platter... More
