Rhodes Memorial Restaurant information
Behind the memorial is a pleasant restaurant and al fresco tearoom in a 1920 thatched-roof cottage. It’s family-run and specialises in Cape Malay dishes, such as curries, bredies (pot stews of meat or fish and vegetables) and bobotie (delicately flavoured ostrich-meat curry with a topping of beaten egg baked to a crust).
Bookings are advised on the weekends – especially on Sunday, when there's live jazz from 1pm to 4pm.
