We ate here twice during our stay in Dullstroom and truly enjoyed it. The eclectic decor is so original. Wallis the cat came to our table to visit several times which we loved. The lamb shank was a delicious dish and falling-off-the-bone tender. The stuffed trout was very fresh. Calamari starter was very nice. My husband loved the snail starter... More

Hello Dixie, Many thanks for your review of Mrs Simpsons. We hope that Wallis, the pampered cat, does not disturb our guests , but she always seems to be the main attraction. I apologise for the fillet being a bit more done , normally we tend to underdo it. Hope you enjoyed the rest of your holiday, and maybe a... More

One of the consistently wonderful Dullstroom experiences. The decor is unique and the Wallace Simpson theme is carried through, even into the street. The staff are more friendly than family and couldn't be more welcoming if they tried. The two levels of the restaurant were packed, but the service was not affected by that in any way. The food is...

What a great place. So well decorated with all their shoes and clocks. The star of the restaurant is the amazingly beautiful cat. The staff is super friendly and courteous. The food is top. We had the lamb curry which was the best I've ever had and the stark and kidney pie which was just spot on. Their peanut butter... More

This was our second visit to the wonderful Mrs Simpson's & the welcome we received made us feel like long lost friends. The decor is whimsical, & I'm sure we'd have to visit every day for a year before we can take it all the Wallis-related items. The staff are charming & attentive, but not obtrusive, & everyone around us... More

After two months holidaying in SA, this is by far the best "overall restaurant experience" we have had - delicious food, great atmosphere and friendly host. A real little gem!

Was highly rated and so thought we would pass by, the exterior didn't look that great but the quirky cat crossing sign gave us something to look forward to As soon as we entered we were greeted with amazing service and even more eccentric decor. You can tell the place has history and we loved every minute of our visit.... More

We had dinner here on a Saturday, which was busy. The wine list was a bit limited but the wines they had on hand were great. Food was good with the lamb shank being the recommended dish.

There is a reason to book your dining experience well in advance when visiting dullstroom. It's a very popular restaurant that serves great food in a setting that puts you in the shoes (pun intended) of the late mrs simpson, a lady that loved shoes and fashion. I couldn't figure it out when we walked in, the lighting like an... More

The way i was treated made me feel very bad and the food in was served was full of butter and very oily. No effort was made to serve a well balanced meal.

Oh dearie me, what a disaster! On booking your table, was it perhaps announced that one of your group is a vegan?No. Not many restaurants have vegan dishes on hand, just in case a guest requests one. You were offered a choice, which you said you do not feel like. The chef then put together a dish, including making special... More
