The setting of this restaurant is absolutely perfect. Peaceful atmosphere, excellent and affordable food which are presented beautifully. I can say so much, but in the end you must go and experience the whole package yourself. You won't be sorry.....☺

We arrived but unfortunately that weather kept us inside and not at out outside table reservation. The food was delicious and the ambiance quaint. The service and extra efforts made up from staff made this a superb experience and we thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. Thank you and we will be back and hopefully have our riverside sundowners as previously planned

The staff is very friendly and attentive and there is a spread to choose from! No matter what you order, you wont be sorry. Also dont be in a rush when you there as everything is very laid... More

Os restaurant was one of my great surprises. Incredible setting fantastic food. Best pork neck ever. Wife ate 2 x starters both five star. OUR WAITER TANYA WAS A BLAST AND SOOO FRIENDLY. Who needs France Parys on the Vaal rocks. Os should be no1 in listings.

Thank Ockert B
