Visited the shop after reading reviews on Tripadvisor. We were on a road trip and stayed at the Camdeboo National park. After visiting all the museums in Graaff-Reinet we had lunch at Polka. Can recommend the lamb.

A friend recommended Polka. We were on a road trip from Cape Town and had booked into the nearby Drosty Hotel.
The restaurant is a short walk from the hotel.
We were greeted warmly on a busy Thursday evening.
The restaurant is in a renovated house so the tables are slit up throughout the rooms.
The food was very good. The salmon starter was beautifully presented.
We opted for the local favourite Karoo lamb. One shank and one chops.
The shank was exceptional - fall off the bone tender. The chops were generous but had a marinade which wasn't to our liking. The vegetables were steamed and a little 'hotel like'
We had a malva pudding to finish which was very good.
All in all a good evening.
The shop and bakery would definitely be worth a visit in the daytime. The fresh sourdough breads look amazing.

Excellent food and service. Try the lamb dishes especially the neck. Wine is priced to enjoy. Will be back

Enjoyed breakfast and coffee at Polka. Attention to detail made the breakfast special and it tasted very good. Will go back anytime.

Lovely menu with Karoo delicacies. Service was unfortunately poor. To few staff for the number of guests. This restaurant should be great with fewer guests.
