The Garden Route and the Little Karoo Restaurants


Leila's Arms

Leila's Arms Review

Intended to be an example in sustainable living, this friendly and informal restaurant serves fabulous lunches—made mostly from organic ingredients—at a great price. The classic is a baked sweet potato smothered with creamy chicken, cheese, olive oil, spinach, salsa, dates, and fresh herbs. There is always a slow-cooked lamb dish, either curry or bredie (stew). The crockery is from a local potter—and you won't find two matching plates. Leila's is on a farm just outside George; the turnoff is signposted on Montagu Street about 1 km (½ mi) on the airport side of Fancourt.
