After traveling over 30 hours and finally having a chance to take a seat and have a drink, we were basically told that if we were not buying two entrees and appetizers we could leave...shunned as if our money was of no use to this establishment. Mind you, the restaurant was empty at this point and nothing was going on... More

After a disastrous meal at the portuguese restaurant down the road the night before we were a little nervous eating here. But the meal was utterly delicious and the owner/waiters were so friendly! - one of the best meals we had in our 3 week trip to South Africa. Especially for me as a vegetarian which was very hard in... More

The "manager" of this restaurant has managed to leave a very sour taste in our mouth. Graskop doesn't have very many restaurants so it is understandable that when we went there it was fully booked - HOWEVER - when a potential client comes through your doors you would think even if you aren't able to serve them just then, you...

I would have to say without a doubt, that the food here was the best I have had after spending the last 4 and a half months on back to back tours throughout Southern Africa. Abe was very hospitable and quite a good laugh and the rest of the staff were very friendly.

We arrived on Sunday night at the Graskop Hotel, before starting our trip I had seen this restaurant on Trip Advisor and decided to give it a go. The staff and especially our host made it a memorable occasion with constant joking and entertaining. We all had curries with no extra "heat", perfect, the flavour was still there without the...

A very cosy restaurant, with a very personal service and a relaxed atmosphere. The food was good (we had a curry and a bobotie), but not exceptional. We liked the idea of choosing your bottle of wine from a selection of bottles standing on the bar.

We had planned to eat pancakes on our one evening in Graskop, but our B&B host recommended The Glass House and made reservations for us. We are really glad he did. We were warmly greeted when we arrived. We like to eat local dishes when we travel and there were plenty from which to choose. The meal, atmosphere and service... More

Just before the doors opened for the night the owner came to the door to which we were waiting for 5 minutes, and told us "we have no tables for you". My parents thought it was a joke and he then said "we are full." And went inside. So we then went to the (highly recommended) Portuguese place up the... More
