You can expect the favourite menu items of:

  • Beef and chicken burgers
  • Fish and Chips

But there will be a lot more to follow and to tempt you to become a frequent guest of Kathy & Geoff.

Since the launch of the website in 2005 has become THE website of reference for this region in the southernmost part of the Cape. It is widely regarded as the definitive online business directory and guide to the Overberg – one of the most divergent and inviting areas in South Africa. When the website was developed the excellent SEO (search engine optimisation) ensured that most searches on the internet brought listings to the top of the search engine pages. This has given the Overberg region more prominence than it ever had in the past.
