Reviews for 278 On Main
Best "bubble bread"
Excellent spot for dinner! The staff and owner are extremely welcoming and offer every effort to make your meal and dining an experience to not easily forget!R220 pp w/alcoholSuitable for children >6yrs oldDid not stay at accommodation but definitely looks a must for the next trip.
Delicious food; ambiance and excellent service.....worth a visit!!
The food and service is 5 stars plus, has the creamy chicken and mushroom pancakes with their homemade sweet chilli on the side my word it was one of the best breakfasts I have ever had and we went back for dinner I had the oxtail(which was really falling off the bone) and my friend also had the delicious lamb shank. See pictures below
Brilliant! Sue and her team are just fabulous! Nice spacious room with attention to detail. Fresh milk in the fridge, coffee in a container, candle + matches, bath oil & bubble bath + great breakfast. Value for money and worth 5 stars. Highly recommended.
Great accommodation. Best breakfast in town
The most divine soup but oh so little in the smallest bowl.
As many have shared, a very slow service. We tried to be understanding as it was a busy night, but we had to call the waiter twice, once to order dinner and then again for the bill - we felt entirely ignored. Another couple actually left as no one served them. The food itself was pricey, and the pasta dish I had was less than amazing, as the sauce tasted like a canned sauce. However, the baboti wantons and tomato soup were delicious.
Good food takes long. I agree fully. But NO. This place has avarage food and a menu that reads like a short story. No thanks. Will not be going back again.
Delightful accommodation in the quaint village of Clarens . Very comfortable rooms and in lovely surroundings. The nearby church clock informs of the time for insomniacs. Good breakfast too.
This restaurant advertises everywhere that their food takes a while - which is fine, but then it should be good food. Not 1 person around our table of 6 had anything good to say about their meal. Terrible preparation, no presentation, poorly executed recipes. Even the jug of water on the table tasted so bad we couldn't drink it. Water! And the few other patrons at the time looked upset about their orders - so I don't believe this was an isolated event. Competition is high in Clarense and this place is totally unacceptable.
We were a party of 6 for dinner on a busy Saturday night. Every meal ordered was delicious, service was very good. A definite recommendation.However I cannot comment on the accomodation as we stayed out of town.
We went for breakfast and chose to site outside where there were blankets provided. The waitress was very friendly and provided a good service. The food is really good and satisfying, but the menu is quite expensive especially for a breakfast.
"Comfort and convenience"
The people were friendly. The location is extremely convenient allowing one to park and then explore the village on foot. The accommodation was comfortable and clean.
"Lovely little gem!"
We really enjoyed our stay! We felt right at home and really relaxed! We'll definately return!
