The Windmill Restaurant
Situated at the Jasmyn Farm Stall, The Windmill Restaurant has been a favourite to both locals and out-of-towners. The eatery is known for its waffles and brunch options such as the cottage cheese and salami stuffed sandwiches.
Siesta Tapas Bistro
Can’t afford a holiday in Spain? It’s all good! Head to Siesta Tapas Bar & Bistro in Hartebeespoort for some of the best finger foods this side of the Alboran Sea. A winner is the cheese platter for one with a collection of fine cheeses, crackers and preserves. Another platter would be the mixed which consists of a selection of marinated ribs, moroccan spiced chicken satays, pan grilled prawns on saffron rice, chilli salt calamari, fried halloumi and empanadillas.
French Toast Koffee Kafee
The French and the Dutch meet in Hartebeespoort and bring something brilliant to the table. French Toast Koffee Kafee is a must when you’re at the dam for the day. Breakfast is served until 12:00 and the lunch menu is something to write home about. Brochette de pain doré, bacon et banane for the win… Oh, you don’t speak French? All good. That’d be bacon and banana French toast skewers. Convincing, isn’t it?
de Vette Mossel
The best way to enjoy good seafood is with friends and sand under your feet in front of a boma. Thankfully de Vette Mossel offers all of this at their eatery. It’s like something out of a Hemingway novel – the Cuba years, of course. A house favourite would be the snoek and sweet potato.
One of the country’s most renowned breweries is situated in Harties, and fortunately it doubles as a brew pub serving food. Chameleon is known for its burgers paired with their famous brews. Whenever you find yourself in town pay them a visit – you won’t regret it.
