The guest house is a cosy place right smack in the middle of town. Easy access to a lot of nice restaurants. The staff are very welcoming. It was my first time in South Africa and they were incredibly helpful with recommendations of food places...More

Hi Glenys, For good casual dining, The French Connection is great! For fine dining, try Foliage, Le Bon Vivant or Reuben's restaurant. All within walking distance. Kind regards, ' Justin
