Lamberts Bay South African restaurant
For a unique veld dining experience in true West Coast style, try the open-air Bosduifklip restaurant, situated 4 km from Lambert's Bay next to the tarred Clanwilliam and Lambert's Bay road. Here, along the old winding road in the heart of the Sandveld, surrounded by ancient rock-formations and concave cliffs - the whole caboodle - mums and dads, oumas and lighties, neighbours and friends, can linger undisturbed, relax and savour a way of life long lost in other places.Take your pick from a wide variety Sandveld and seafood dishes sizzling off the coals - crayfish and mussels, snoek and sweet potato, lamb on the spit, salads, plassbrood, konfyt and sweet dumplings - then wash it down with steaming coffee. But in the end it will always be the rhythm of the concertina and guitar; perhaps a quick-step or two in the old stone kraal under a starlit sky and fond memories that will bring you back to the Bosduifklip time and time again."On their farm Kobus and Aletta Engelbrecht are cooking up a storm of Sandveld cuisine, add to well-prepared Bosduifklip food a starlit sky and a spot of "wikkeling die boude" to music on a concrete dance floor, and the sophistication of the city loses much of its appeal" Lannice Snyman, Getaway Magazine.
