This restaurant closed its doors and is replaced by an amazing liitle restarant called the Lords Kitchen. Decor is stunning, best I have seen in a Karoo town. The menu is small but the food was good.

This small, I think they only have 5 tables inside and a few more outside, is very cosy. the staff is extremely friendly and the food is tasty. They have a limited menu and if the cook is too busy you can forget to get a Latte or Hot chocolate... but to be honest
