The predecessor to The Girl’s Restaurant opened back in 2001 on the banks of the Touw River in Wilderness, as The Riverside Kitchen.
With 2 women chef-owners and a ladies-only kitchen team, it became popular for locals to say they were going to eat at the Girl’s…and so after selling The Riverside Kitchen, it didn’t take long to come up with a catchy name for their new venture.
The Girl’s Restaurant opened in 2007, now in the centre of Wilderness but in a ‘distinctly different’ location – right on the edge of the petrol station forecourt next to a busy national highway!
The Girl’s spent 11 successful years in this unusual location where locals and tourists returned time and again for the great food and service but certainly not the view!
In time, The Girl’s was joined by 2 sister venues, Fláva Café and Roxi’s on the Square. It seemed the only way to give our customers the best all-round dining experience at The Girl’s, would be to find a better location… So mid 2018 The Girl’s Restaurant joined hands with Roxi’s on the Square to become The Girl’s on the Square!
This fusion of flavours now means you can enjoy the best of both -Roxi’s tapas style menu during the day and The Girl’s dinner menu in the evenings.
