Previously known as Peccadillos Bistro, and re-branded as Rupert's Bistro, the delightful bistro located in the beautiful Overberg village of Greyton continues to serve classic and hearty food in warm and welcoming surroundings.

Arriving in Greyton on a Monday afternoon to find most restaurants were closed, left us with one of two options.
Rupert's Bistro it was, and we'll be back!!
The food was punching with flavour and the waitron willing to open a bottle of Merlot to serve per glass even though it's not listed as available per glass.
I had Chicken livers as a starter and will be back for more! The menu is small but caters for all palettes. Portions are just right. All plates of food that went out looked beautiful. I'm a fan and will be back!
It might seem unrealistic to give a 5 star rating all round but really this place is sublime. We spent the weekend in Greyton on one of our family members farm and decided to eat out on the Saturday night. What an absolutely gorgeous place, from the warm welcome, warm as it the pizza oven was blazing as well as the literally outstretched arms as we walked in, to the friendly, comfortable yet superb service we received all evening. The food feels like you're home but not, it is tasty, well prepared and just works, almost Plat de Jour type fare - we ate beautiful beef roast with veg, I couldn't of prepared it better myself. The wine list is special, we drank a bottle if Raka Spliced, you don't find it everywhere so it was special to drink it in the quaint town of Greyton. Never did we feel hassled nor neglected, I felt like I was at a foodie friends house - I mean what more do you want on a freezing cold weekend in Greyton. The dogs lying next to the tables made me feel even more like I wanted to pull up a chair next to the Pizza oven and discuss my dreams of possibly walking myself into my 50's on the Camino. Well done to the owner because he was there, apron clad all evening, you've perfected a special recipe, I hope the tourists and locals lap it up and support you more than you wish for.
What a wonderful meal we all had yet again. One of our top five restaurants. They always manage to come up with something our 10 year old will eat, which in itself is a massive achievement! Worth the drive.
Outstanding food, wonderful wine list. A truly lovely experience!
