Northern Cape

A quick look at our favourites – those recommended on our destination pages – plus “one-offs” that are definitely worth a try if you’re in the area! Links to websites (where available) for easy booking.




Smidswinkel Restaurant

Open every day and a popular place in town for eating, drinking and watching sport on the big screen.





Die Waenhuis Restaurant

Situated on Papkuilsfontein farm, serving great home cooked lunches and decadent cakes in a beautiful setting.





Tauren Steak Ranch Restaurant

We’ve eaten here a few times while overnighting in Springbok on the way North. It’s truly one of the best steaks we’ve ever eaten! Good atmosphere with cosy booths and a great bar. If you like your steak – it’s a must try if you’re in the area! Seems to always be busy, so booking advisable.





Cluster D’Hote

Housed in one of the oldest Victorian buildings in town and extravagently decorated with lots of collectables and antiques. The food is karoo cooking with a twist and the lamb shank is excellent.
