Karoo Art Hotel’s The Gallery Restaurant: Gourmet destination on Route 62

Our restaurant, The Gallery, is proof that our love for all art and talented artists extends and embraces the kitchen! Over the last four years Karoo Art Hotel has established itself as a country hotel offering excellent food: The Gallery Restaurant is a member of the international gastronomic guild Chaîne des Rộtisseurs and a winner of the Klein Karoo Gourmand Restaurant Award, and has a very good Klein Karoo wine list.

The emphasis is very much on South African traditional food, particularly on Karoo dishes such as Traditional Karoo Lamb Bredie (a delicious traditional casserole), Klein Karoo Ostrich products (very tender, very delicious and cholesterol free!), the best Karoo lamb chops, all designed to intrigue and please your taste buds.

Why Should You Dine at The Gallery Restaurant?

Our restaurant serves South African ‘platteland’ food, Karoo dishes, all prepared by our professional chefs, only using the best available fresh local ingredients.

Our chefs have a few signature dishes – Karoo lamb cutlets, pork belly, Springbok Carpaccio, and our Chef’s steaks are the best! Our restaurant reflects the ethos of the Chaîne des Rộtisseurs, the international gastronomical guild dedicated to the camaradie of the table, of which we are a member. Most of our dishes are unique to the Karoo and South Africa as a whole.

Due to our chefs’ many accomplishments, the hotel and its restaurant have evolved into a food destination on Route 62. The hotel restaurant has been awarded the Klein Karoo Gourmand Food Award, marking it as one of the best restaurants in the Klein Karoo.
