Transkaroo Restaurant

Transkaroo Restaurant Great Brak River

Bistro, serving lunch and dinner, delicious food enticingly dished up by their chefs. Also catering for vegetarians as well as kids. Offering a great selection of local as well as international wines to choose from. Wonderfully relaxed and intimate ambience what with all the woodwork – the wooden furniture as well as the rustic wooden floors. Likewise the wood-panelled walls and high vaulted wood ceilings with open wooden rafters anchoring huge chandeliers. The light shades on the chandeliers resemble the eggs of an ostrich.

The historic Great Brak River train station building is now accommodating the Transkaroo Restaurant. If you are lucky, a train might roll past while you are enjoying their delectable food. Weather permitting, you might be sitting outside, eating alfresco beside the quiet lagoon overlooking the estuary. From this beautiful spot with tons of character you can simply drink in the splendour of the view in all directions.

The venue is also available for private functions. The very skilled and able Transkaroo team will create a perfect menu for the occasion.

Transkaroo Restaurant Menu

The menu is written on blackboards on the walls to keep up with the seasonal changes to keep up with what is good at present. They also look after vegetarians and children so that everyone can enjoy their food.

The Transkaroo Signature Dish is the rolled lamb neck which is slowly cooked to the point of falling off the bones. They also offer other great meat dishes such as oxtail and succulent pork belly. Other dishes you might find here are ‘skilpadjies’ made from scratch and served with onion marmalade.

Their chefs of course make their own delicious pies as well as curried coconut fish cakes. Also balsamic onion marmalade and Camembert tart. You might perhaps want to try their snails vol au vents with blue cheese sauce. To round off your meal, they also offer something sweet such as lavender crème brûlée or moist malva pudding and rich custard.

And of course, a glass (or two) of elegant wine of your taste from their expertly selected wine list.

Transkaroo Restaurant in Groot Brakrivier

Hierdie uitsoek-eetplek is in die historiese Groot Brakrivier treinstasiegebou langs die lagune met ‘n uitsig oor die riviermonding. Hulle bedien middagetes en so ook aandetes vir almal, insluitende vegetariërs en kinders. Daar is ook ‘n uitgesoekte wynlys om van te kies.

Die spyskaart is geskryf op swartborde teen die mure omdat dit gedurig verander saam met die seisoene. Hulle spesialiteit is lamsnek wat letterlik van die bene afval, en so ook ander vleisgeregte soos beesstert en skilpadjies met uie-marmalade. So bak hulle ook hulle eie pasteie en viskoekies en allerhande ander watertand disse wat afgesluit kan word met iets soets soos malva poeding.
