The food is consistently delicious, highlighting the flavors and recipes of the owner’s home country. The bartender is a creative genius, and her libations are not to be missed!

One our “must go to” restaurants when in Ptown. Love the Beef Bobotie, the Peri-peri chicken wings, and the Pap & Wors; an African farmer sausage served with ground corn and a tomato gravy.

Excellent soup and appetizers. I would stick with the African and Asian fusion dishes. Excellent service, pleasant atmosphere and tasty food. I highly recommend this restaurant. It is different than other restaurants on the Upper Cape.

Karoo serves food from South Africa. It's spicy but not overpowering. The service is excellent. They have a small store to sell tee shirts and jars of spices. I buy Cape Malay Stew every year.

For myself, coming from London, it was not that expensive. Here we pay a lot more for good cooking. I think Karoo is a step up from your average fry-up and prices will reflect this.
