So glad this restaurant was recommended to us, it is one of the best we've tried in South Africa, my husband had the Kingklip I had the Pork. We then finished with the Brandy desert which was amazing, so was the wine, if we are ever back in Montagu we will certainly visit again

It was a pleasant enough evening but very dated.
You're paying Cape Town prices and they're still in the eighties! Menu and crockery (black square plates!)
The starters were fine.
The steak (apparently lazy aged) was just ok but the green peppercorn sauce was diabolical. Neither a bechamel nor a cream base - it was like a translucent peppery gel. Quite unpleasant.
Dessert was good - but they certainly upsell their BlackGold ice cream. It was fine.
Service - we saw some of the previous reviews/warnings and although our service was fine, you could see that it wouldnt take much to set the owner off and it make one quite disinclined to say anything negative (who wants a scene when you're trying to have a pleasant night out).
We asked if there was any main course that was recommended and got the response that "it's all recommended or or wouldn't be on the menu" and yet that is sooo not the case when it comes to ordering dessert. A neighbouring table was quite harangued for not ordering their BlackGold ice cream!
So long story short - decent enough food and don't poke the owner and you'll have an ok evening.

We had dinner at this so called Simply delicious restaurant. It turned to be simply disastrous and the worst experience we had during our stay in Montague.

The overall food experience is alright if someone is looking for a reform/alternative kitchen and a rude and offensive service. For a tolerant and accepting adult couple you may get some protein and starch in a cold atmosphere, but if you travel with children or teenagers, or if you have bit of a personality of your own, avoid this place far far away, as you are likely to get into conflict.

On the upside, the speed of attention and service was the fastest among all the restaurants we've been to in Montague.

We haven't seen any flexibility when we asked for anything different than the restaurant owners / waiters have on their mind.

Later, when my daughter asked her steak with some french fries, she's been talked down in a harsh language about the unhealthiness of french fries.
I really recommend this restaurant to hang out a no under 18, or rather a no under 81 years of age sign in front of the restaurant.

Horrible place, avoid it far away!

We had dinner here because our B&B was around the corner and this was one of the four suggested restaurants.
We had an excellent dinner, a pleasure for the eye and very tasteful. Reasonable wines by the glass ( unfortunately in fact only one wine per colour). A nice signature dessert with a Klipdrift regional old brandy. And all in a good timing and for a reasonable price.
The effect was that we immediately reserved for the next day (which we never do, because we are always curious to the quality of other restaurants) and started the hunt for a bottle of the brandy Black Gold XO.
We liked the second evening as much as the first and succeeded to find the brandy in a shop in Stellenbosch.
Certainly a restaurant to come back to in the future.
Strongly advised to make a reservation in advance!

This is a restaurant where the owner/chef has an absolutely focus on the attention to detail. The food was delicious complemented by seriously good wine. Need to book though as it's very popular.
