Critic's review

Rather hidden on Darling’s unlovely Main Road, this is one of the Swartland’s best restaurants. It’s comfort food all the way, with generous portions of homemade chicken pie, tender lamb shanks, and rich stews. There are great breakfasts on offer too, and the crispy wood-fired pizzas simply fly out of the oven on Friday nights.

A selection of local estates, but you shouldn’t miss out on a bottle of ale from the local microbrewery.

Efficient and friendly.

The sunny courtyard has the best seats in the house. Otherwise settle for a table indoors surrounded by abundant arts and crafts for sale.

It’s best to book ahead if you want a table on Friday night. (RH, October 2011)

  • The Marmalade Cat Bistro in Darling has excellent food and superb service. Very cosy atmosphere and the price of food is excellent. (value for money) Need to have the restaurant banner closer to the main road as we nearly drove past. Saw the restaurant by accident.

  • Went to Marmalade Cat today with high expectations but left deeply disappointed. This place is a mess! Staff completely incompetent, took about 45 minutes to get our drinks, the food never arrived, we had to leave hungry after 90 minutes in order not to miss PDU's show. How difficult is it to run a café? What a disaster.
