2 Best Restaurants in Augrabies Falls National Park, The Northern Cape

Die Koker Kombuis @ Die Mas


This lovely, casual restaurant at Die Mas van Kakamas Vineyards is a good place for a long, languid, pizza-and-wine lunch or a wine, brandy, or gin tasting that you can combine with the menu's reasonably priced and lovingly prepared pasta dishes or steaks. While waiting for your order, you can sit on the terrace overlooking the vineyards, and children can take a short stroll along a wooden walkway to see farm animals and a herd of springbuck that live nearby. The amenable cellar staff will show you around and discuss the wine-making and distilling processes. A second branch of this restaurant, Koker Kombuis, is at the quaint, quirky Die Pienk Padstal (The Pink Farm Stall) along Augrabies Road on the outskirts of Kakamas town. It's also wort of a visit, especially if you want breakfast or would like to buy boxes of grapes or some of the tastiest dates you'll ever eat.

Kalahari Sushi & Cocktail Bar


The current owner of this restaurant was so impressed by a sushi-cum-cocktail bar in Cape Town that he bought it and moved it—plus the barman—to the table-grape farming town of Kakamas. Rave reviews (even in the New York Times of all places) are probably due more to its novelty value. But it's a fun place, and although local menu additions like springbok won't appeal to everyone, real sushi is served here, and there's a good cocktail bar. It's definitely worth a visit. There are also rooms for rent in the hotel.
