Reviews of The Phatt Chef Roadside Diner and B&B

Rodney G.



Service was good. Food’s turnaround time was quick. Chill atmosphere. Cappuccinos need some work.

Shannon R.



Had some hamburgers but couldnt eat the meat. It was disgusting. When I complained they were very hostile! Dont stop here!

Corne P.



Beautiful place. Lots of character and charm

Rick C.



Good place for a quick bite! Incredible view from across the road! Needed a refuel after the climb on a bike :D

Ryan B.



Love the combination of charm, location and the food. No fuss "staying with friends at their farm house" feel. With the Sterkfontein road now a lot better the perfect place to spend a few nights or stop off for lunch.
