Enjoy lunch and dinner in our a la carte Restaurant, Oudtshoorn in Schoemanshoek, just few kilometres from Oudtshoorn.

Halaal Oudtshoorn, All of our Ostrich and Chicken dishes are Halaal.

De Oude Meul Restaurant Oudtshoorn is no ordinary Restaurant. It is a historic building with the Old Watermill still inside the Restaurant. Approx. 150 years old.

The Restaurant opened its doors in Oct. 2003. Known for the wide variety of venison dishes served in the restaurant. People come from wide and far for the experience.

We are also known for the wildlife scenery and river in front of the Restaurant that creates a peaceful yet romantic atmosphere!

We are situated at the foothills of the Swartberg mountains and are also surrounded by mountains. Truly The little paradise in the Klein Karoo!

Our Buffet

Daily from 8:00 – 9:30

The building was restored in 2003 when Christo & his wife Doret built 12 four star guestrooms next to the old building.

The “Old Mill” inside the restaurant, was in production for about a hundred years and all the wheat from the Cango Valley was milled here.

The Mill closed down in 1920 and for more than 80 years it was used as a storage facility.


The restaurant is surrounded by mountains and a free flowing river, therefore it creates a relaxing yet romantic atmosphere.

The restaurant tenders for meals for all guests and tour groups over lunch and dinner. Buffet or a la carte. For these people a farm stop is also a very special experience.

The rooms of our nearby lodge overlook the fields where animals graze. To eat as well as to stay here in this very special environment is a great privilege.

Some of the best local wines are sold here.
