“Tasty food, set inside a lovely guest house.”

Old Cape Trading Post has been in Stuisbaai for about a year. It's a great place for simple, well prepared traditional meals. We sat indoors but there is also plenty of outdoor seating.This is definitely a restaurant we will return to. I'm looking forward to trying some of their local cuisine - bobotie will be my first choice!
