Easy going restaurant offering very good steaks. It is simple (it’s all about steak!) but well prepared and the service is very friendly. The restaurant is charming in his way because simple and without chichi.

Hi: Joplins is just east of Dune Guest Lodge, Wilderness on the other side of the N2 highway. You could probably walk it in under 15 minutes! Phoning ahead is best, but if its not a weekend not usually necessary. I can't... More
