The staff were considerate and courteous and served each course impeccably. We had 3 courses which were interspersed by 4 chef's complimentary tasters. The estate wine was delicious and so... More

This restaurant has a great atmosphere, nice furniture and decoration. The menu is interesting and offers great choice including good wine paring for a reasonable price. The staff is a bit too formal in our eyes. We do know that this is a more luxury restaurant but staff should be able to adopt based on the customer that visits. Those... More

We were speechless, the scenery and set up was just perfect. Now the food is from another world, this chef got to be one of the best in the world. Definitely one of the best meals we've ever ever had.

We came twice here in 2 weeks time : once for a wine-food event and once " a la carte" . This place is not stopping to amaze us.... Great value for money, heavenly good food, great venue..... This is an absolut MUST if you happen to be in Franschhoek.

We were excited to visit this eaterie with a big reputation, especially as our travelling companion had visited a year earlier and had had such a fine experience he wanted to return! So, disappointed when his house speciality starter of burrata was not creamy in the centre, he referred the matter to the waitperson ... Who questioned whether our friend... More
