It's been said our food is mouth-watering, but

don't Just take our word for it

WOW, what a way to start a first time in Tulbagh. When food is good, it's a hype... when the food and service is great it's something I cannot describe. Excellent service and the most succulent ribs. I will definitely come again, even if it's just to visit the Bistro.
