Matt Schreuder's Homespun is by far one of the restaurant rustic fine dining in Blouberg not to miss. The space has been renovated in a creative way that makes the restaurant appear more spacious.

The food is still creative, beautifully plated and enticing.

For Starters, the beef tataki is a spread of different textures that complement each other. The fillet is juicy and tender encased in a crunchy coating, served with light and crispy tempura onion that are caramelised and sweet and completed by a wasabi mayo and pickled ginger.
Other starter options that look appetising to the eye are the grilled Patagonia squid or the vegetarian deep fried goats cheese.

For mains the new kid on the menu is the Lamb en croute. This lamb neck is cooked for 2hours over high temperature and then the heat is reduced and the lamb is then cooked for 6hours over this low heat. The result off course is an infusion of flavour and super tender lamb. As mentioned the lamb is rich in flavour and encased in phyllo pastry with al dente Julian vegetables – makes one think of a large spring roll.

Another main to consider is the beef fillet that is flame grilled served with sweet butternut wedges and fresh spring onions.

Besides their signature desserts Vahlrona blonde fondant, the chocolate torte Is the best to finish off a great dining experience. This torte is served with a decadent dark chocolate sauce, a banana gelato that taste just like fresh ripe bananas giving a cold sensation to the warm dessert. The fresh tart strawberries and gooseberry garnish cuts the richness and the pecan nuts compliments the banana gelato.

Homespun boasts themselves with wine paring of their dishes. They have a wide variety of wines. Other that that the wine list they also have craft beers and craft ice teas.

The service is still topnotch. Well informed, warm and welcoming. The menu is explained to guests with suggestions from the waitron. The guests are sent a confirmation sms for bookings. When guests go to the restaurant for a celebration such as a birthday etc. their table is then decorated with fresh flowers.

The space has had a bit of a face lift – looking a little more spacious. The space is intimate and cozy – great for celebrations and romantic dinners. The large mirrors make the space appear larger and the pendant and candle chandeliers look beautiful and give the space a modern touch.

    Homespun by Matt is definitely not be missed if you appreciate fine dining and an adventurous experimentation with flavours. After an absence of months courtesy of Covid we could not wait for our fix. We did the Tasting Menu with wine pairing and from the amuse-bouche to the dessert it was like a visit to an art exhibition. Not only is the food divine, but the whole experience including Matt's interaction memorable. We highly recommend Homespun!
    At last I could visit my favourite local restaurant last Thursday due to the ban lift on restaurants! However, no alcohol 🤦‍♀️ Everybody needs a glass of wine with fine dining. It was lovely just to be able to eat out especially if one lives alone!! It was lovely to see Matt and his excellent team. The hospitality was sincere and so welcoming!! I had my favourite ostrich canapés which was scrumptious! Followed by the Malay squid!! Yummy with the best of bo- kaap flavours!! Oh my, the Matt Special was amazing- juicy and soft, cooked to perfection!! The brûlée with the smoke under the dome was drama!! What a show!! That is what restaurants are all about!! Well done Hi young Matt and your beautiful staff!! Thank you for a spiffing evening!
    Wow, what a delightful experience!! Fine dining home delivery from Homespun in a box!! Beautiful presentation and scrumptious food in the true Homespun epicurean flair!! It took me on a journey from Europe to Japan!! The smoked tomato gazpacho was creamy and refreshing! Prawn potstickers with crayfish dashi - intense flavours which work in harmony!! The sliters of chilli was a stroke of genius but so effective and wasn’t overpowering. Oh, my the Matt special was a delight! Steak prepared to perfection with the Matt seasoning and that delicious jus. All the elements work in harmony! Sublime cooking!! Dessert was yummy, creamy . You guys rock!! Thank you for a mind blowing dinner!! I salute you!!
    I am definitely having withdrawal symptoms!! Missing that the delicious food from my favourite local restaurant which is closed due to covid 19!! Can’t wait to have those amazing canapés! They are packed with flavour and extremely yummy!! Matt we will be there hopefully on the 1st of May!! Table for 5 please!! 🙏🙏 please be safe beautiful people!
    What a beautiful evening at this fantastic restaurant with amazing food, ambiance ,attentive service!! The food blew us away! The flavours were intense and well presented. We didn’t know we can find such fine dining outside the waterfront!! We were privileged to meet the owner Matt! What a charismatic person!! He has a clear view for his restaurant!! He is so young with a such intelligent outlook . Thank you Matt and your team for a stupendous evening.
    What a special evening with friends at this fantastic restaurant! The ambiance , sleek service and delicious food made this a memorable experience! The ostrich canapés and ceviche were yummy! Intense, fresh flavours which definitely pack a punch! The smoked snoek samosa with rooibos apricot corn citrus definitely show case the cape Malay flavours. The dish works in combination with these flavours and slap one’s taste buds! This is honest and dedicated cooking!!
    Wow! Homespun is distilling their own gin!? I made an impromptu decision tonight to pop by to taste this gin. I had a neat shot. It was absolutely an extremely pleasant surprise!! The flavours were of juniper, orange, cinnamon and other flavours which were too delicate to clearly identify. These guys are definitely rocking!! My veiw is that one could create one’s own gin based cocktail through the specially designed mixology menu.
    What a unique restaurant with the most beautiful food! The calamari and matt special were exceptionally tasty! You are taking fine dining to a different level!! Thank you for a special evening!!

    Brilliant evening, food was amazing, thanks Matt!
    What a beautiful gem of a restaurant. Great ambiance with such a cosy intimate feel. The food is absolutely stunning. It took us on a journey to Asia! Fresh ingredients and honest cooking. The Malay infused calamari was tender - thought provoking aromatic flavours. The creamy corn was a stroke of genius! The Matt special was full of intense flavours with international epicurean flair in the true Homespun style. The humble melktert was transformed into a delicious sophisticated dessert!! This is sublime cooking! The wines were outstanding and complimented each dish! They definitely make the best gin fizz in Town! Big thank you to Matt and his dedicated team for a stupendous evening. We highly recommend this restaurant. Matt is definitely an outstanding host.
    Delicious and appetising food, beautifully presented. I like that there is not an enormous menu with too many options. And the restaurant decor is intimate yet bustling. Wish I could go there every week.
