Thoroughly enjoy breakfast at Salmon Bar. Good variety, super location with a great courtyard at the back. Always confident to take friends / colleagues here for breakfast.

we were not able to find Salmon bar anymore. Had been there previously. It seems that it has closed down.

We use to go to Salmon Bar when driving through Franschoek. Really enjoyed the vibe and food. My father passed through this past weekend and saw they were no longer excisting. That is real sad news. Wonder what's on??? Please open another one, maybe the farm is keeping you too busy. Thanks for the time you were open.

Firm favourite of my father and uncle, we drive out to Franshoek to dine here ever time we visit Cape Town. Utterly delicious... the joke is that I don't usually like salmon but I will eat their salmon roses and their fish burger any day.

Every time we have come to franchoek we end up in this little restaurant for our brunch. Fish is always fresh and very tasty, prices are good and service is quick. Well worth a visit.

My wife and I had lunch at the Salmon bar and chose the prawn curry with rice. It was an excellent meal and the service was friendly and efficient.

For a casual lunch the Salmon Bar is more than adequate. Our recent visit was a good all round experience from the staff at the door, the service and the pleasant and well presented food. The starters were plentiful and substantial enough for someone wanting only a lite-bite. The mains, we had kingklip was well cooked and well presented and... More

Here for a quick lunch and the menu looked very appealing. We sat down and ordered a platter of basically cold meats, cheese and bread. The platter arrived after more than 30 min and with only one meat and no olives. For Franschoek a very poor performance and very disappointing experience. All of the previous restaurants were outstanding. Being regular... More

I took family members along to this divide hole in the wall eatery. The ingredients are fresh, tasty and an ideal place if you want trout or salmon.

We had to travel into Franschhoek from the Southern Cape and needed a breakfast. Are we glad we chose Salmon Bar! An Americano and a Cappuccino (both R16) arrived within minutes of being ordered, and then our Benedict Royale and Scrambled Egg and Salmon (both R75) were on the table within a reasonable time frame. Good flavours from dishes that... More
