We visited as part of the wine tram tour and chose Dieu Donne for lunch after reading reviews here. It was a Sunday and very busy but we were given the lovely front table I had requested via email from the UK. The view is to die for. The service was friendly, efficient and quick. We had game meat for... More

We experienced breathtaking views of the Franschhoek Valley from Dieu Donne, while sipping on samples of their fine wine. This is a lovely spot to just stop for a while and breathe in your surroundings. They have a micro brewery too which, and you can get a run through of how they make their own craft beer.

There literally aren't enough good words to describe the quality and the taste of the food at ROCA, absolutely mind blowing.

We had a fantastic table by the window in the main dining room (was a little chilly to eat outside that day). Lovely food - good choices, nice estate wines, good children's choices, good service and fabulous view. A must visit if staying in the area. Very busy - must book.

Thoroughly enjoyed our lunch. Enough options to choose from on the menu. They also have a kiddies menu which is not a common thing to find at this type of restaurant. The service was good and our waiter was knowledgeable. The estate wines were very reasonably priced and worth the cost. We sat outside on the verandah which was buzzing... More

We went searching for the craft beer that they make here but we were disappointed to find that they only had the ROCA Lager. Not the best craftm beer I have tasted. Lunch was a bit expensive but very nice.

This was our last stop on the wine tram tour and did not disappoint! The view is spectacular and while looking over Franschoek we sampled some great wines and bubbles with a lovely cheese board. A must see!

When we booked the wine tram, the lady that sold our tickets recommended that we reseved lunch at Dieu Donne. She was absolutely right and we were delighted when we arrived to the stunning scenery of the Franschhoek valleys and mountains. As others have mentioned, the wine tasting isn't really up to much but the lunch was excellent. Service was... More

This is a review on Dieu Donne wine estate/tasting, not on Roca restaurant. We went on the wine tram this weekend and Dieu Donne offers to free taste glasses. This is very nice however, the wines the give are terrible. This doesn't make you want to stay and drink or buy more. Even worse, the staff are ALWAYS unfriendly (I... More

This restaurant adjacent to the tasting room on the Dieu Donne wine estate was completed some time after my 1st visit several years ago and I have eaten there on various occasions including twice on a recent visit. One has the choice ( if booking well in advance) of eating inside or outside on the lower terrace, both offer the... More
