Black Oystercatcher Restaurant, Bredasdorp Restaurant
At the Black Oystercatcher Restaurant, we live by the season.
We serve fresh produce that grows in our own garden as the seasons dictate. As a result, we offer an organic dining experience, set in a relaxed country atmosphere. Here fresh food, complimenting our boutique wines, is prepared to order and enjoyed at leisure. The seasons also determine the mood at this Elim restaurant: the refreshing sea breeze will cool you down in summer, or enjoy our cozy log fires in the winter months.

Black Oystercatcher Restaurant is situated on a wine farm in the Elim wine ward. The restaurant is close to the quaint missionary town of Elim and the small town of Bredasdorp at South Africa's southern-most tip. The setting is ideal, looking out over the wetlands that form part of conserved Nuwejaars Wetland Protected Environment, and across to the rare fynbos on the Soetmuisberg mountains. The view is complete with our infinity pool situated next to the dining area.

Great for a short afternoon trip from Struisbaai / Agulhas or Bredasdorp. Constantly changing menu selection, always something interesting to look forward too. Very relaxed atmosphere.

We went here for a wine tasting and lunch and had a very good experience. We were served by the winemaker, and were able to hear what he had to say about each wine...

Elim lunch at Black Oystercatcher
12 January 2011

"I joined an early January group eating a holiday lunch under the outdoor marquee, and we had a tasty time tucking into homemade hamburgers with potato wedges and onion marmelade, as well as grilled yellowtail with salad. This fish was fresh! Dirkie caught it on a Struisbaai fishing expedition with Springfield’s Abrie Bruwer the previous day. Also impressive, the Asian tones of a chilli and coconut milk-infused prawn and chicken noodle dish served with Indonesian shrimp chips".... more

Black Oystercatcher Restaurant
The Black Oystercatcher Restaurant offers visitors some insight into the rich history of the Agulhas Plain. The building is more than a hundred years old, and has through the century served as a dairy parlour, stables for horses, while even housing ostriches at one stage. It was converted into the restaurant in 2008.

Aside from the dining facilities, wine tastings are also held here. This Overberg restaurant has featured on programmes such as Pasella (
