We recently had dinner here on an overnight stay in Kimberley. Excellent food, amazing atmosphere. Even a playground for kids. A must visit!!
It's situated inside the Big Hole Museum complex, so you get that authentic old time feeling. I didn't eat there but still the staff were friendly and helpful. It's definitely worth a visit.
Beautiful setup. Warm atmosphere. Nice craft beers. Had a very nice lunch. Reasonably priced. Friendly staff. Open in the evening although situated on the same property as the mine. Lots of stuffed deer.
In case you're wondering, it is still there and open, it's just behind all the renovation fencing. If you enter the Protea Hotel and go just past their guard gate you will see a blue gate on the left that accesses the Big Hole Museum and the fake touristy old time historical street and Occidental Bar in in there.
A beautiful historic city but no option for a good lunch. We visited a couple of places that was recommended but walked out. Then we found Occidental and they made an impression. Thanks to Ntombi for being a wonderful "host"
We had lunch at the Occidental ons Sunday afternoon and it was great! The kids had a nice time playing at the swings, slide etc. while we enjoyed the live music. Nice to sit outside in the sun, and umbrellas for those who prevers the shade. Food was delicious and overall friendly staff.
I visited on valentines day and yesterday.On my first visit I gave the place the benefit of doubt,yesterday my doubts were confirmed.We had pork belly,chicken,fish and hamburgers.Tiny portions were served,poor presentation,bland food.One burger burnt and bitter the other,well,medium and tasteless.The menu limited,the food much too expensive.Ok it is a bar but food don't have to be bad.Please,please improve the food!!... 更多
Seven of us had lunch on a Monday so the bar was very quiet but I really liked the feel of the place and I'm sure that over a weekend the place pumps and gets very "vibey". We ordered a variety of dishes and everyone enjoyed their food. I had the pork belly and it was great! An added bonus... 更多
What a wonderful dining experience. Located within the Big Hole museum complex there's a wide variety of food and drink available and the vibe is great. Very busy over the weekends though so I recommend going early.
