The roofed part of the restaurant Part 1

When we started with the restaurant  in August 1991, we only had the open air part and could seat 40 people.
While it does not get as cold here at night as more inland, it is COLD during the winter months in the evening outside.
You can of course drink a lot of red wine, as an eldery lady told me years ago on a cold winter evening " when you drink enough red wine, then you are warm inside"
After the first flower seasons --- August till middle October, Kobus said that he will built a roof over the "skaapkraal"
Lucky for us, the "skaapkraal" is right next to the open air part.A part of the stone walls were part    of a blacksmith shop in the 1800's.
The other walls were built by Kobus"s father in 1942 .

We use the roofed part actually much more than the open air part , it  has its own unique atmosphere with rocks inside.

Over the next couple of post I will take you down memory lane about the construction and building of the roof ( Kobus did it all with the help of 2 workers )
In the meantime, take a look at these lovely wedding pictures of decor and dancing in the roofed part.

lovely review

It is always wonderful to get a good review, we appreciate it so much.
There is a saying that " you can please some people sometimes , but you cannot please everbody every time", and that is why kind words from costumers that have been to Bosduifklip mean so much to us.
This review was written a while ago, and when I read it again , I just had to share it.
Thank you so much!!

I attended a wedding at this venue in December 2016 and was absolutely stunned at how beautiful it is. From the road and entering the premises, one cannot imagine what lies behind the rock formation. The reception is held next to the massive rock and it makes you feel like you are inside a cave, except you have splendid views of the West Coast and an amazing view of the setting sun.

The fairy lights and hanging lanterns gave an extra romantic ambiance. The food was a West Coast buffet with numerous choices of fresh seafood. Three different snoek dishes, seafood pot, freshly home-baked bread and jams, so many salads and a lamb spit. The team attending to guests was extremely friendly and helpful.

This venue is so completely different from the last few weddings I've been to. If you are in the market for a rustic, off-the-beaten-track venue, go for this one!
