The winery felt a little commercialized. They no doubt have a beautiful view at their restaurant but everything was pretty lackluster. The wine tasting area was kind of blah with uncomfortable iron furniture. Though, the staff was very nice. We ate at the restraint afterwards. It was pretty full so it seemed like a popular place. But once we sat... More

Franschoek is in itself a most beautiful town to visit. Dieu Donne restaurant is on the wine estate and sits up on a hill. The restaurant has a glass front which provides views of the Franschoek valley which are so beautiful, you don't pay attention to the excellent food they provide. Super location and definitely worth a visit.

Think the title says it all. One of our fave places to sit, sip on a cocktail,watch the sunset over this gorgeous valley and village and then ease right on in to a meal. Stayed in Franschhoek for 5 days and kept coming back to Dieu Donna for 3 of the evening meals.Micro brewery on site too for the beer... More

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!
