we were here on a business lunch, which is probably a bit problematic for the staff as a bus load of people arrive at the same time. the wine was great, food was amazing, i highly recommend the deboned chicken, the view is probably some of the best in the franschhoek area but the service was really sad. it felt...

Went to this fine establishment as part of the wine estates visited on the Francshhoek Wine Tram. On the overall, this estate was the highlight. Advise to travelers, you need to plan in advance as to where you are going to have lunch on the wine tour or else you will be left Hungary or pay a fortune to eat.... More

This was our second winery on the Franschhoek Wine Tram and the wine tasting was included. The views of Franschhoek and the valley from here are also great and the wine was very nice but thought that other vineyards were better. You can also have your wedding here and would be great for the views. We were recemmonded to come... More

We tasted wine here and admired the beautiful chandelier in the tasting room. The wine was good and afterward we strolled outdoors to enjoy the view afforded by the winery's location atop the hill. We also had lunch in the restaurant on the property, delicious--we loved the ostrich.

A large group of us had lunch at the Roca Restaurant. Having been wine tasting the whole day the group was quite loud, but the staff managed us well and I was very impressed with the level of service. The food and the view out shone everything - you seldom can beat a view like that while having lunch, and... More

Roco at Dieu Donne above Franschoek is possibly the nicest afternoon of wining and dining we had in three weeks of visiting the entire Cape from Camps Bay to Plettenberg Bay and back. We had a party of five and service was excellent. Staff was attentive, knowledgeable and professional without being obtrusive. The food was wonderful and the wines outstanding.... More

Great location, good wine to taste, I would recommend the wooded chardonnay. Restaurant if you want to test it out. Very pleasant service.

Extremely pleasant staff offsett by extremely displeasant display by owner with no regard for the dignity of his workers in front of customers. While he himself, the high and mighty don't greed. Pathetic!

Just as Holden Manz, this estate was included in the wine tour, but these two estates are worlds apart. The wines at Holden Manz were very acidy, where the wines at Dieu Donee were much better bodied and fuller in taste, with less acid. Here we could also determine our own speed of tasting, where at Holden Manz we were... More

As part of the wonderful Wine Tram tour, we stopped at Dieu Donné and decided to stay for for lunch in the Roca restaurant. The setting was nothing short of sublime and we enjoyed 'poll' position on the terrace with views that may possibly be unrivalled anywhere. We were served enthusiastically enough by our waiter, who was both knowledgeable and... More
