There are no unnecessary frills on the menu at Black Oystercatcher, and that’s just how loyal locals and Overberg visitors like it. Instead, frippery is replaced with solid bistro-style cooking and excellent value on the plate.

Their beef and venison burger is justifiably one of the signature dishes, but those with an Agulhas-sized appetite will be happier with the generous steak pan; tender rump doused with garlic and chilli, served with a side of salad and bread. Seafood also makes an appearance, with the well-balanced bouillabaisse showing there are some skills in the kitchen. Inventive salads are ideal if you’re looking for a light bite. The generous platter of local cheeses is a fine way to end off a lazy lunch.

A great range of wines from the estate, all at cellar door prices and available by the glass. Fraser’s Folly craft beer is also brewed here, available on tap and to take away. Try a tasting flight with your starters.

Relaxed country service with a smile. The kitchen can be on the slow side when busy, so relax.

A modern ‘barn’ filled with natural light keeps the Overberg winds at bay. Tables spread out onto the sheltered terrace, with lawns and a pool offering plenty of space for kids.

Best for…
A family-friendly day out in the country.

    We enjoyed a relaxed afternoon at the Black Oystercatcher. The steak pan was delicious and perfectly cooked. The kids menu was great, offering a decent size portion of chicken strips and chips. Service needs some attention, its a little slow and laid back.
