As one of the oldest houses, circa 1880 in Piet Retief Street, this Victorian dollhouse was renovated in 2007 by the Marais family, to become a prestige Restaurant in Sutherland, namely Cluster d’ Hote Restaurant.
Originally this was one of seven flat roof sandstone houses, used by farmers as town houses to attend Sunday church services. Saying also goes that during the Anglo Boer War POW, women and children from the Tankwa-Karoo area were kept in this area and this house was used as a hospital for them.
Redolent with antiques and collectibles Cluster d’Hote Restaurant, represents the vision of Johann and Anelia Marais of serving quality dishes rather than quantity. We hope that by the end of the evening, you as our respected diner will share in this vision.
At 6pm the doors open serving traditional Karoo cuisine to the very highest of standards. The cuisine various on a daily basis depending on the availability of products here in the Roggeveld, this provides Anelia, the chef, a certain challenge in ensuring the flair and superb presentation.
Certain dishes have become trademarks at Cluster d’ Hote, this being Lamb shanks, Lamb chops and also our Swiss trimmed Beef Fillet. The focus however remains on variety, fusion of flavours and combination of ingredients.
So come and enjoy a gastronomical feast in an astronomical environment, at Cluster d’ Hote in Sutherland.
