About Dine at Paddagang Restaurant

In the heart of the historic town of Tulbagh, hungry souls will find this unusually named eatery a joy, where traditional Boland cuisine and fine local beverages have been served since 1821.

At Paddagang you find mouth-watering examples of the finest Cape Dutch and Cape Malay cooking. A tantalisingly creamy Smoorsnoek starter, served with homemade grape jam and freshly baked bread, Bobotie (spiced mince baked to perfection with a savoury custard topping) served with turmeric-infused rice and fresh vegetables, or the iconic Waterblommetjiebredie, a stew of lamb and asparagus-like indigenous water hawthorn. The legend is, that in years gone by, during their mating season, the paddas (frogs) that inhabited the restaurant gardens would have to hop down a path past this building to get to the river at the bottom of the property to find their froggy companions. Hence the name, which can be translated into English as “frog’s passage”.

The setting is impressive. Paddagang is set back on Tulbagh’s picturesque Church Street, where one finds no less than 28 national monuments. While you visit why not stop and taste some of our wonderful wine?
