Explorers Garden Route
The restaurant is housed in the Central Boutique Hotel (built in 1876 for a family of 13 children!) and situated in the heart of Riversdale, a favourite stop for all meals, including tea, coffee and a variety of cakes. Lunch and dinner is served either in the restaurant or in the tea garden and it’s a great way to experience some of the local cuisine Hessequa is famous is for.
