The restaurant does mention on the menu that during peak times the meal to could take in excess of 35 minutes preparation time, but 90 minutes?! I mean come on! Yes you go to a famous restaurant in town knowing that you will have to wait for your meal, but this kind of wait is ridiculous. If you know the... More

I had the best ostrich stroganoff ever. Even the ostrich steak my husband had was excellent. The food was well presented. The staff very friendly and had a good knowledge of the menu. Highly recommended.

The food was good and fresh. We thoroughly enjoyed the sushi and went back for more later on in the evening. Our server - Latifah was welcoming, friendly and just excellent. I was supervised to hear that the place shares the same owner with Brian's Grill as the foods are worlds apart....the menu is similar but there is much more... More

This restaurant was recommended by our B&B. Remember that this restaurant is at the bottom end of Baron van Reede, just opposite the museum. Don't try to walk from 70 Baron van Reede if you are not up for it. The restaurant is for informal dining and does not only have traditional karoo food on the menu and are children... More

Passing through Oudtshoorn, we stopped for lunch at the Karoopot. What a disappointment. We were looking for nice ostrich (Oudtshoorn claim to fame) and all we got were dried out, off the shelf burgers. But there service was friendly and efficient and the beer cold.

We took this as a good sign and sat down for bite to eat. Service was quick and friendly with and ice cold drink in hand, we checked... More
