We ate at this restaurant three times during our stay in Haenertsburg! The meals were excellent and the chef prepared a vegan meal especially, every time we visited. A must visit if in the area. Service was also excellent and super efficient!

In our opinion, the service is what made our visit enjoyable. Lindiwe (hope the spelling is right) was amazing. It’s not often these days you get incredible service, however she went above and beyond and made the experience great. The food was good, the chicken...strips for the kids were incredible, the T-bone with pepper sauce was average unfortunately.More

There’s a cozy area at the fireplace, Colleen is very hospitable, generous portions. I feel they are a bit understaffed in terms of FOH service though

We had lunch today at red plate wow what a awesome expierance. The trout was pan fried as to my request cooked with lemon and fresh garlic the best ever. My wife had a simple chicken strips but it was fresh made in thier own...batter really delicious. The kind of food served here would be of a expensive French resturant. The chocolate brownies are to die for. We met the owners lovely people keep up the good work.More

We were surprised by the quality of the food in a small town like Haenertsburg where one would thing resources and supplies are at a premium. Service was slow but taking into account the popularity of the restaurant and with COVID restrictions in place, it...actually was not bad. On top of all this, the staff had to deal with the local monkeys as well. They were at the back of the restaurant and on the roofs, foraging for the fresh vegetables as it is delivered to the restaurant. It is obvious that the vegetables and fruit are supplied by local farmers and therefore surely very fresh.More
