Swellendam Restaurants

The Overberg is a feast for the senses and if you intend on travelling this world-famous route, you’re in for a real treat. For starters, you’ll see scenery that’s truly remarkable. From breath-taking mountain ranges with peaks that brush the clouds to awe-inspiring seascapes - often complete with passing whales or dolphins - everywhere you look is sublime. In addition to the gorgeous surroundings, this part of South Africa is home to a charming scattering of small towns, each with its own flavour. Whether you’re looking for the best places to eat in Swellendam or a special book store in Montagu, you’ll discover more than you expect when you start exploring the area.

One of the most surprising destinations along this route is the picturesque town of Swellendam. Although it is renowned for its rich heritage, boasting buildings that date back to 1746, these historic monuments are only a part of the area’s allure. The thriving art community also contributes to the town in various ways. Pottery studios, farm stalls, art galleries and festivals are commonplace here and the culinary arts are not forgotten. In fact, when you’re wondering where to eat in Swellendam, you’ll soon discover a smorgasbord of options. The local flavour is as diverse as the scenery and regardless of your tastes, you’re bound to find the right spots. 

If you like the feel of a quirky restaurant that experiments with new flavour combinations, then some of the best places to eat in Swellendam will suit your palate. Most of these are owner-run, meaning that you can expect a high level of service and attention – often from the chef him or herself! On the other hand, if you’re in the mood for some hearty, traditional fare, you’ll find your fill at a number of well-established eateries in this charming little town. 

Taking a walk around the settlement gives you the unique opportunity to stumble onto a cosy bistro or vibrant café. These little spots dot the streets in the bustling heart of Swellendam and are welcoming places for visitors to rest their feet between guided tours and general meandering. They’re also great places to absorb the atmosphere. In addition to a delicious meal or a fantastic cup of coffee, you’ll get a chance to survey the surroundings and the passers-by.

Part of any journey involves sampling the local food and when you’re visiting Swellendam, you’ll find yourself creating opportunities to eat out at the local restaurants.
