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

This is a quality restaurant with the most stunning view of the Franschhoek valley and mountains. It is at the top of a very steep climb so the view is fantastic. The restaurant is 5* and the food is wonderful. I had seafood bisque followed by my first experience of springbok, cooked as recommended medium rare - exceptional. The wine... More

The view and the tasting here offer a sensational view. You can see most of the valley below and on a good day, its hard to beat. The wine-tasting is average, because you have to fetch your own wine each time, which is almost unique in the area.
