This is the only easily accessible venue in Parys that is situated right on the river's edge. Furthermore, the whole venue is covered by massive oak - and other indigenous trees, the garden is truly splendid. We love the peaceful atmosphere and the multitude of water birds. O's offer a wide variety of foods from pizza's and pasta's to traditional... More

Beautiful setting! Sitting down to a meal under a tree with the sound of the flowing Vaal river was just exquisite. The food was very tasty and served by competent waiters in a tranquil atmosphere. No loud music to prevent proper conversation. Will eat there again.

I have been to this restaurant many times, the location is amazing. You sit outside in the garden which is abosuletly stunning overlooking the Vaal river. I would recommend making a reservation before you arrive as it tends to be very busy. There is a table on a deck over looking the river which is probably the best table for... More

Had dinner for our 16th wedding anniversary. The garden is spectacular and a perfect romantic setting. Although they knew about the occasion, they didn't make an effort with the table, we had to ask for a candle. The waiter was friendly and helpful. My husband's food was perfect, he ordered a steak, but my oxtail was burnt and without any... More

This was our second time we had a meal at O's and oh what a pleasure! All our children and grand children...8 grown ups and 6 kids were there and we all enjoyed our meal! They were a little busy and perhaps another waiter would have been good. We all had a lovely evening and will definitely be back when... More

The service is a bit slow. My wife had a bobotie, it was not the best I have ever had. My burger, well, I could do better with the Woolies patties. The atmosphere is great. The owners must really pay attention.

Went with family as a group of 8 on Sunday and it was BUSY! In fact it was full so booking ahead is recommended. When I saw how busy it was I was nervous but all was well. The larger tables are a bit out of the way so you dont feel rushed or packed in like sardines. The service... More
