Among the restaurants we visited (approx10) the meat was the best in this place. Try beef. Although starters were great I advise to make sure to have enough space left for a dessert. They are outstanding.

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
