The restaurant was recommended to us and rightfully so! It was decorated very nicely inside and the waitress made us feel very at home. We each took a starter and then shared a platter of mezzes. They were so very delicious, especially the springbok fillet!...More

Koornlands Restaurant is the longest serving restaurant in Swellendam, established in 1994. We pride ourselves as being amongst the finest. Warm, friendly and always professional. Our menu often changes due to the seasons and availability. A menu gegustation with wine pairing is available for table participation. Our venison is legend and so is our comprehensive wine cellar. Dine alfresco on the veranda or the garden. We care about vegetarian and vegan preferences. Reservations are highly recommended, due to limited seating. 04.00 PM - 06.00 PM Drinks 06.00 PM - 10.00 PM Dinner
