About Die Hantamhuis Kompleks
Hantam Huis is the hub of many activities regarding the Hantam Huis Complex and Calvinia. From being the centre of the local tourist industry to conservation and restoration to being a licensed restaurant.
Hantam Huis is an authentic building that is representative of the late 18th century’s building methods. Built-in 1854, it is laid out in a T-shape and is the oldest authentic house in Calvinia. It took more than a decade to restore this building to its original glory, complete with its authentic reed roof and was declared a national monument in 1983. Hantam Huis is currently being used as a licensed restaurant on one hand, and museum complete with curio shop stocked with handcrafted merchandise on the other.
The restaurant part of Hantam Huis serves the most delicious traditional meals from early morning to late night. By day you can get homemade milk tart served with traditional “moerkoffie”, rooibos tea or traditional ginger beer that is prepared to an age-old recipe.
All meals for occupants of the guesthouses where applicable are served in the Hantam Huis. The most elegant dinners you can think of are presented here by candlelight and romantic music.
