There is not many good places to eat on the N10 between Kimberly and Upington. This place is perfect. Lovely decor. Neat attractive garden offers choice outside or inside depending on weather. Very full menu offers variety. Food is fresh and home style prepared. Service is good. You can park out front where you can keep an eye on the... More

Very friendly service. Freshly prepared good food. Real organic lamb from the region. The best restaurant in Griekwastad. Highly recommended.

This lovely café is a welcoming stop for a pot of delicious tea and good coffee with homemade rusks...biscuits...cakes and hot snacks. The ablutions are fresh and clean. The garden is very beautiful and the staff friendly. The owner is delightful and enjoys chatting with her guests.

We stopped in Griekwastad at the single fuel station hoping we would find a nice spot for a late Lunch. Proviand is an Oasis, with a beautiful garden and friendly owner and staff. The home made pies are awesome. If you need a break form the long road, I highly recommend this spot!

It was completely unexpected to find such a nice restaurant / coffee shop in such a small town - so that is why it gets 5 stars - basically it was a nice surprise. We were on a long road trip travelling from the Mokala National Park to the Witsand Nature Reserve, via Douglas. Most people stopping here would be... More

We were on a long trip from Upington to Kimberley when we came across this restaurant on a Sunday lunch time. We were SO pleased! The food is quite simple, but very well made from lovely ingredients and delicious. The manageress was very friendly. Although we were just about the only people left in there, we were not rushed. We... More

While driving from Upington to Kimberley we came across this very nice restaurant quite unexpectedly. The eating options are pretty limited on that trip, but fortunately Proviand is quite good. The owner greeted us and the staff was also very pleasant. The milkshake my son had was very good, as was our lunch. The menu is pretty extensive, and the... More

In the most unexpected location we found this lovely tearoom and restaurant. On a long journey across the Northern Cape between Upington and Kimberley, Griqua Town is around half way. Set at the side of the main road Proviand was like an oasis. Looking for all the world like an English country garden tea room, it is the old magistrate's... More
