With its informal setting, this restaurant has the best most tasting food, made with only the freshest ingredients. The strawberry daiquiri is made with fresh strawberries. And they have Erdinger beer on tap! Personnel are friendly and provide an outstanding service, and the owner has a passion for food and his restaurant.

The pork belly is excellent. The eisbine is great. The fondue is a bit of a disappointment. We enjoy visiting here.

What a gem on the Hartebeespoort road. Casual garden dining, with the most fabulous German/Swiss food! Mike insisted that we try fresh Weiss beer & he was right, it's superb! We had the Bratwurst, potato salad & kraut & the Caesar Salad. I thought my husband was going to fight me for the last of the salad! :) It's been... More

I visited African Swiss for lunch last Saturday with a friend who recommended it. I was not disappointed. A lovely relaxed restaurant with a rustic bush feel. The food was excellent. Specifically the Gnocchi and the fish soup. The owner Mike explained in detail and with passion how he prepares his meals. He has a kind of soothing placid and... More

My girlfriend and I were in the Harties area and were looking through Zomato for a nice restaurant in the area to go to for dinner. We ended up selecting AfricanSwiss as it had a good rating. Must say that it was a good choice as the food was cooked to perfection and the taste was superb. I had the... More

I booked in at African Swiss once again and cannot find the words to express the taste of African Swiss' food. This is FINE DINING at its best ! No other Restaurant, and yet i say this again, NO OTHER RESTAURANT will come near the quality and taste of Mike's menu! The Eisbein, Pork Belly, Chicken Curry or just some... More

Nice place to stop on the way home after a weekend break at hares. We stopped by for lunch in June, Pizza was good. Kids meal was average. Nice outside area which will be great in the summer days and nights. The should however tidy up the area you enter through which has the kitchen and fridges in wide view.

Wanted lunch and tried this restaurant as good reviews are given on Tripadvisor. Facilities are very run down and temporary electrical cables running on the ground looks bad. An old dirty and ill Greatdane walking among guests ruins your appetite. We ordered a beer and focaccia which was OK? Walking past the kichen also does not look good.

I wanted to say thank you to all my customers over the last twelve years, who loved and cuddled Calah my Great Dane, who were worried when she was not around, because she was walking guests onto my mountain . Calah is now old and unfortunately with age comes less beauty. Most of my guests still think she is beautiful... More

Always good food! We have lived in the area for 12 years and frequent African Swiss when we can. Reading other reviews which were not complimentary, allow me to say that in 12 years we have never had a tough shank or a dry chicken breast. Neither is the dog ugly she is just extremely large! The owner is always... More
