Afternoon out enjoying Dutch cuisine in sunny South Africa, cheese schnitzel, kroketten and chips with mayonnaise.
We've wanted to visit Van Galen for a while and happened to drive past recently so decided to stop. Honestly though I was a bit disappointed. Maybe I expected too much but found the experience a bit...
A Must visit for the cheese-lover.Nice relaxed ambiance.Very good cheeses. Also suitable for school-outings.
