Group dinner dates are always a good way to spend an evening with friends. I’ve been really lucky to meet a great group of people in Oudtshoorn who, amoung other things, enjoy doing just this and in Oudtshoorn we really are spoilt for choice. However, perhaps this choice is a little daunting as we tend to frequent a little Italian place, Bello Cibo, quite often.
So in a break from tradition we visited the Pomegranate Restaurant located at the Boudlers Spa, just off
Baron van Reede Street, on you way out of town toward the . Boulders Spa is the oldest spa in Oudtshoorn and offers a range of treatments and packages aimed at the more discerning tourist. Pomegranate Restaurant has lovely understated decor, with a warm inviting colour palette and a fireplace for those cold winter nights. While the food was not fantastic, considering the slightly higher price range, it was tasty and rather filling despite the seemingly small portions. I’d recommend for mains, the orange and white wine infused ostrich steak, and for dessert the coffee chocolate mousse, or a glass of De Krans port if you need something sweet to finish things off.

All in all a good night out with friends - After a few bottles of wine and the plummeting temperatures, the jacuzzi was looking rather inviting - luckily they’d just chlorinated it, or knows what might have happened ;)
