Our group of friends booked a Valentines Dinner and we ones again had a great meal of excellent traditional South African food. This is our first visit back after the renovation. What a nice venue and excellent hosts.

We always visit this special place when in De Rust. We were lucky enough to be seated at the same spot every time, in the corner at the back. Such good memories! Food and service was great! You will see there again soon!

De Rust is a small town with only a handful of places to eat.The Trading post was recommended to us by another traveller and we were not disappointed. The restaurant is in the main road, just look for a big chicken outside, that's the place. It consists of a pub, restaurant and a gift shop, which stocks nice table cloths,... More

We stopped for a quick lunch on a very hot day. The homemade lemonade was ice cold and delicious! I had a sandwich that was very tasty although, in comparison with other restaurants, the sandwich was quite small. I opted not to have a salad with the sandwich so for me the amount of food was just right. My sister... More

We stopped here for brunch on our way to the meeting sport waterfall. Service was good but our omlettes were a little over powered by sweet onion marmalade or something similar. The shop had many interesting and quality items for sale in a well organized space.

We enjoyed our afternoon tea and lemon meringue at this very cute little spot. Definitely worth a stop. Friendly people and kids enjoyed the homemade lemonade too.

Excellent service in laidback restaurant / gallery. Friendly staff, were happy to make 'fussy' orders (no tomato, no onions). Comfortable seating, delicious cakes. Roosterkoek is made fresh on the oven in the back (if you sit outside you can watch) and it is delicious. All food is available as a take-away for the same price.
