The Drostdy Hotel is situated in the beautiful Eastern Cape town of Graaff-Reinet (often called the Gem of the Karoo), which was established in 1786 and is South Africa’s fourth oldest magisterial district.
The town contains over 220 heritage sites - more than any other town in South Africa - and has examples of magnificent Cape Dutch, Victorian and Karoo architecture.
The much acclaimed De Camdeboo restaurant at the Drostdy serves a wide selection of delicious Eastern Cape fare and is open daily for breakfast lunch and dinner.
Located on Drostdy Hotel’s premises, De Camdeboo’s setting alludes to the romantic 1800s.

Patrons can look forward to traditional meals such as local venison, ostrich and Karoo lamb, among other superb offerings on the restaurant’s à la carte menu.
Dishes are typically infused with fynbos, rosemary and thyme, found in abundance on the surrounding plains and are therefore a true reflection of the region.
To complement meals, De Camdeboo offers a wonderful selection of Cape wines.
