Most medium-size towns along the Garden Route offer a decent selection of restaurants, and the smaller towns of the Little Karoo usually have one or two good restaurants and a handful of lesser eateries. If you look around in the region, you'll find some fabulous places to eat; usually the emphasis will be on seafood in general and oysters in particular. (Knysna has an oyster festival in July.)
The farms of the Little Karoo provide fresh ostrich meat and organic mutton or lamb, which stand up to South African red wines. Ostrich biltong (jerky) is widely considered the best variety of this national treat.
