A family restaurant, run by head chef Jaco Slabbert, Olifantshuis is located in an old manor house, dripping with country character and boere charm. Whether it’s their perfect steaks, West Coast inspired seafood and even pizza that you’re after, this restaurant and watering hole is the perfect spot for any weary traveller looking for something delicious to feast on.
With indoor and shaded outdoor seating, the restaurant caters for diners throughout the seasons, with the added bonus of a cracking good fire in Winter. The dishes are often infused with chef Jaco’s love of Rooibos (the local tea), which delicately flavours traditional South African favourites, such as ostrich fillet and delectable seafood dishes, through to food erring on the gourmet, such as their crayfish risotto.
The food is hearty, the ambience is quintessentially South African and the vibe is truly memorable.
