We tried the ostrich burger and the ostrich stroganoff for lunch, and found both to be cooked quite tough compared to other eateries. The wait service was quite good nevertheless.

We had dinner at Jemima's with our 5-year old. Food was really good, and so was service. Try booking the back garden, as it's really enjoyable. There was a nice wine selection.

The sign on the street said in large letters 'CLOSED' but we were welcome for breakfast at 8am. The affable owner shrugged his shoulders and said "We are never closed for business, that's why we're here!" Lovely setting and s half hour of colourful history of the feather and ostrich trade followed, far more informative that a guide book. Food... More

We had dinner at this restaurant. Good menu, and nicely prepared and presented dishes. I had sole, which was very tasty, and my wife the steak duo, one beef, the other venison. Disappointed with the ice cream, which was described as a trio of ice creams, but in reality a rather poor small dish with what seemed to be only... More

We particularly enjoyed our lunch stop at Jemima's. We could not figure out the reason for the name. We ordered the French onion and the Vegetable soup with a Ostrich filet sandwich. The soups were piping hot, tasty and quite good. The ostrich sandwich with grilled veggies, tomato salsa and chips was just perfect and I must mention the homemade... More

Eat inside or outside. Good menu and wine list. Food excellent. Slightly more expensive than some, but good value.

We had a very pleasant evening here. Good food, locally sourced. Some minor issues, with appetisers appearing after the starters and wine a bit later. Order not quite right, but none the less very well prepared innovative food

This is a lovely classic restaurant in town. We hadn't booked but they fitted us in on the terrace - it was a warm enough evening. The service was prompt and polite. My wife had an amazing butternut squash salad and I had the Jemima's beef fillet. Both were excellent. I would definitely recommend it.

We went here because that was our lodges dinner choice. So we only paid for the drinks and got a set menu. Was great Food. The ostrich was to die for.

We came here because of the good reviews and Jemima's didn't disappoint us. The place is very nicely decorated and cozy. We ordered wine, the "tower of butternut salad" (100 rand), the 300 gram ostrich steak (190) with pepper sauce (25), a small side salad (30). We ordered the steak medium rare, unfortunately it came medium well to well. That... More
