Farm Stall & Restaurant
Why our Restaurant along the R62, you ask?
The farm stall, housed in an old labourer’s cottage, stocks a sumptuous variety of locally produced products – jams, home-made rusks/cookies, canned fruit, flavoured olive oils, vinegars, biltong/dried sausage, and freshly baked roosterkoek and farm bread. The roosterkoek has become so popular that it attracts people from neighbouring towns who purchase it in bulk for their own outlets. There is also a petite cellar room, stocked with locally produced wines, sparkling wine, port and a large selection of beer.
Extending from the farm stall along the veranda, the restaurant presents you with a captivating view wherever you are seated, with farm animals such as ducks, fowl, turkeys and peacocks surrounding you. It is a picturesque setting with an ambience unique to Bella de Karoo. If you are looking to taste real farm food, you have most certainly come to the right place! The menu complements the setting – the fare is home-made, fresh, original and quite simply out of this world. The restaurant has earned various accolades for the quality of experience it offers diners. Guests staying overnight may place an order for dinner in advance, which can be served either inside their room or outside on the veranda (weather permitting), where they are able to take in the beauty of the surroundings.
Open from 7:00 in the morning till 17:00 in the afternoon.
