We had a great dinner evening at O's. The abiance was good, with a warm fire adding to the cozy setting. The food was good. We would like to return for a breakfast or lunch, as the outside setting is in the lush garden under huge trees on the banks of the Vaal river.

Take a break from the main road hustle and bustle and relax next to river. Either in the huge garden, or on the bar deck. Lovely pizzas, just be warned, they are huge!

This restaurant was recommend to us twice. We arrived without a booking and were accommodated easily. The selection of traditional South African faire was great. We had Oxtail which is served with samp and beans, beans and potato and sweet carrots. YUM. The Babotie was amazing. Portions were generous and the cost reasonable. The wine selection is good.

Beautiful setting of the restaurant and the food is just fantastic with generous portion sizes. Hours can go by just sitting outside and enjoying the views.

I don't know what we did to deserve the lovely secluded table for two my hubby and I were led to by the friendly waiter at O's restaurant! But it was a treat all the same! The food was well prepared and, as a city dweller, I could not believe how reasonable the prices were! Extremely good value for money!... More

What an amazing restaurant and experience. We took a chance and went without a booking, lucky for us they had space. Bookings are recommended though. Friendly staff and waiters. Service was good for such a big and busy place. Food portions are more than generous, there was no space left for dessert. Reasonably priced. Would definetly visit again. Thanks O's

We arrived for Sunday lunch with no booking and although very busy we were given a table inside with the promise of one in the beautiful garden overlooking the Vaal river, which we got before our meals arrived. With an extensive menu of South African favourites and a comprehensive list of international dishes, I choose the 'Porra' Steak, which was... More

We tried the skaapstertjies (lamb tails) and really loved it! The food and service was excellent. Plus add a relaxed setting next to the river and you have a winner.
