Our fully licensed bar, free pool table and extensive cocktail and drinks menu will keep you entertained (watch out for the ‘Buffalo Rules’). Every Tuesday night we host a festive theme party, when there is free punch to drink and the best dressed can win great prizes. Or if you prefer you can enjoy the chilled-out atmosphere around the fire pit.
We know you will be in ‘tropical paradise holiday mode’, so we suggest you sit back, relax and let us do the cooking for you. The breakfast bar is open from 7.30am – 10.30am, so if you are bouncing out of bed for a hike, or having a lazy Sunday sleep-in, you are catered for. We serve a range of cereals, toast and jam, espresso coffee, as well as a variety of cooked breakfasts from eggs on toast and omelettes to the Full Monty. See the rates page to see our very reasonable prices.
Our lunch menu includes a variety of toasted sandwiches, burgers, lasagne, fresh line fish (when available) and salads throughout the day.
The best value meal of the day is dinner, our kitchen dishes up scrumptious home-cooked dinners, which are always two courses, (starter and main-course, or main-course and dessert) with our famous home-made Xhosa bread. Our favourite dinner is “Saturday night steak braai”, the Transkei’s best aged “T-bone” steaks, with fresh salad, potato, garlic butter, followed by apple and cinnamon pancakes and cream, for only R80. We offer a vegetarian option for all meals.
FREE SUNDAY NIGHT DINNER
Sunday evenings are a social affair when everyone eats for FREE. We cook up a big potjie, (South African stew cooked in a traditional black pot) for all to enjoy.
If you are keen to cook for yourself, on a budget we have two self-catering kitchens for guests and braai facilities. One kitchen is located on the “Beach side” and the other on the “Main side” of the backpackers. The kitchens have a fridge, gas cookers, microwave, kettle, toaster, and free tea and coffee along with the essentials, (plates, cups, cutlery etc.). There are several braai places located on the beach side, and a large communal braai on the main side of the property. All fire wood and braai (barbeque) grids are provided free of charge.
