Beautiful views with delicious food

Came for a meal with the family while visiting the vineyards. Seasonal menu and excellent service. The views are breathtaking and the wine was delicious - what else can you ask for ?

We loved the breathtaking view over the mountains and the vineyard. The food was simple but exquisite and overwhole a very good value for money. Not to keen on the wine. A must seen to enjoy the feel of that wine valley.

Breathtaking views - utterly delightful venue- but a very small, rather over fancy menu. having said that, my meal of lamb wrapped in aubergine, was beautifully cooked. Very good wine list with a very good choice. If I am honest, I was disappointed to find a coach party taking up a good part of the restaurant - I wasn't expecting... More

We wanted to do a last-minute wine tasting and/or lunch, but were too late to do either as we arrived with no booking. The hostess let us know we could come back at 14:00 when they would be taking walk-ins. We did just that and grabbed a glass of bubbly from the bar while we waited in the lovely garden... More

The lady waitress assigned to look after us was attentive when she was needed, but not over the top. The food and the wine was amazing we it was a... More

Dined here on recommendation, on the day we left Franschhoek. I booked ahead to make sure we could get in, and glad I did as it's a large place but was very busy, and we got a nice spot outside under the trees. Stunning views, worth a visit for the view alone. Menu was varied and unpretentious. My husband is... More
