Tastings At Obiqua

Duikersdrift offers an ideal setting to savor the rich tapestry of life’s finest flavors.

Our Philosophy

We have a philosophy of promoting social and environmental well-being and carefully select all our suppliers to ensure that the products in our deli and farmstall range meet this criteria. This also holds true for the fresh produce used to create dishes of the finest quality in our restaurant and deli. Wherever possible we use fresh ingredients from our own vegetable and herb garden and produce items for the deli in our own kitchen. We are committed to providing meals that are healthy, natural and wholesome. Wherever possible we support local and regional artisans and producers with specific emphasis on projects that support and uplift disadvantaged communities.

"We stayed at their guest house and came in after the kitchen was supposed to be closed but they made us dinner aways. Such good salad and thin pizza crust. In the morning we had breakfast. The coffee was actually a espresso which was a delight and the orange juice was fresh. They also made me my own vegetarian breakfast. So amazing highly recommend."

"This literally felt like being welcomed home!! Friendly and attentive staff with a varied menu offering interesting options. Lovely to sit under the trees and enjoy the countryside ambience. Portions were extremely generous and flavour profiles really good. Overall a very pleasant experience!"
Tripadviser Review, 2023
"What a surprisingly fabulous afternoon. All the staff were absolutely world class- friendly, patient, informative, efficient and simply brilliant with our group of 20 that they hosted flawlessly. The food was exceptional and every detail is covered, even the baby changing room was better than you usually get. Kids were entertained and they even accommodated my sleeping 2 year old in the private dining room. Highly recommended if you’re nearby."
