Amazing Restaurant, Catering & Function Venue

TOLBOS is fully licensed

Delicious food with daily house specials. Tolbos is open 7 days a week. Meals and platters can be enjoyed on our sheltered patio or next to the fire on colder Winter days. During summer, alfresco dining under the trees in the large courtyard is a great way to end a morning of sightseeing or simply to stop for lunch.

Tolbos is a convenient meeting spot, whether you are on a quick lunch break, enjoying coffee with friends or taking in an early sundowner after a hard day on the farm. The Tolbos team also offer catering & host events.  Many a jolly birthday party has been enjoyed on the premises!

Wine Boutique

The wine boutique includes great new finds from vineyards across South Africa.


A delicious home industry with gifts, exquisite jams, cakes, breads, pies & much more! Everyday favourites include homemade ciabatta,  melktert & rusks.

The owner went out her way to ensure that we we're well looked after in terms of food and even called a mechanic / stayed with us until our bakkie problems were resolved! Great Experience!

We found this little gem whilst visiting the Baviaanskloof Wilderness area. We had the best time there and a delicious lunch. It's also a farmstall with some lovely local products und fresh bread. The staff was super friendly and warm heartedly and took our little 9 month old son to see the chickens so we could enjoy our meal. They also went above and beond to make us some fantastic sandwiches for the drive! Thank you for everything!
