Restaurant charming with old world feel. Beautiful antique furniture pieces. Hubby had mussels starter which was good. He order traditional tribe and trotters. Tasted good but he prefers a more curry flavour. Duck was well prepared. The sago pudding was to die for. Little bit expensive for home cooked meals as it cannot be compared to fine dining but compared... More

We spent two memorable evenings here.Notably we were not rushed through our meal and had time to relax and enjoy the atmosphere (the charming rooms and the garden).Rosemary was a welcoming hostess, with a fund of stories> Keith her front of house, with knowledge and experience of South African wines and the foods of the extensive menu.We will be back!

We enjoyed a superb dinner with our kids on our first night in Gansbai. Keith, our waiter was most attentive and efficient. The lobster was delicious and the decor interesting. Rosemary, the proprietor, made a point of visiting each table to ensure that all the guests were happy. Highly recommended and worth every penny.

The restaurant is beautifully decorated with a very homely feel. The food were very good in general, but special mention goes to the oxtail. It's arguably the best I've ever had!

We have recently invested into the area by purchasing a weekend home. We had spent the day at the new property dealing with contractors etc and we were on our way back to our primary residence. The weather was horrid and the kids were whining and we stumbled into Rosemary's. The decor is not to everyone's taste and does not... More

If you are looking for fine dining - this is not the place. However, if you want good quality home cooking this is the place to return to every time. I was pleasantly surprised and will tell everyone to visit if they are in the area.

It is seldom that you find a cook with a very fine paled and a dish with an perfect balance of flavours, texture and cooked perfectly - Rosemary's Saffron Seafood Soup is a taste sensation !! Thyme at Rosemary’s takes you back in time with an interesting décor of Antique furniture still used on a daily base. Traditional South African... More
