A very good dinner, we ve discovered our firts bobotie; springbock carpaccio and cheesecake were simply amazing. When you re in the vicinity of Swelledam, go to Mattsens and appreciate traditional food.

We didn't much like our steak or burger, but the service was attentive and courteous. My burger was overcooked and the steak, although correctly cooked, did not taste good.
