Relaxed place

The restaurant has a nice relaxed atmosphere, people even have their dogs with them when they are eating outside. Food is good, wine is fantastic.

Amazing food overall. We eat there at least once a month And always enjoy it. The waiters are efficient and the atmosphere is welcoming. Try the Pisa nutella tower for dessert.

We had an outstanding lunch! I highly recommend two appetizers: the Italian sausage and the fried zucchini. The bread was excellent and came with three spreads, including a wonderful one made with sundried tomatoes. The staff were very accommodating about making one of their veal preparations with a chicken cutlet substituted, and it was delicious: mustard cream sauce, and polenta... More

There is very little atmosphere here. The food is standard but so is the food in many other places, nothing really that stands out to make you want to return. For me the question is always, would I return, and would I order the same dish because it was really great. Both questions, the answers are no.

Good place, food ok, lacked a bit of flavour, service a bit slow. Menu is large, makes choice a bit difficult. Focaccia is good.

I cam here in March of 2015 with two other girlfriends for dinner. I cannot even begin to say enough good things about this restaurant other than the fact that it would be a huge mistake to skip this place if you are in town for dinner. The maitre d was incredibly kind and welcoming and even drove us back... More

Ok starter of melon, ham and fig. Rather short on the fig though. I had the gluten free mediteranean pasta (great they have gluten free) but it wasn't great -changed it as it was very greasy and oily. The chicken salad was ok. Husband said his pizza was ok. Reasonable service.

Our last evening in Franschhoek - great food, great ambiance, great management and great staff - we sat just outside under the awning facing the plaza with the mountains bathed by the evening sun and an early moon as a backdrop - the veal was superb the seared tuna fantastic - add a bottle of local wine - what more...

We had a Lovely dinner at Allora last year when they had opened on the main street in the village centre. This year Allora was even better! On the menue there are dishes for all tastes: meat, fish, pizzas, pastas etc. My ravioli was delicious, my husband´s pizza thin and crispy with with very generous filling. You are very well... More

A good restaurant at reasonable price, you wont be disappointed with the pizza or lamb shank. Booking possible but we could walk in and still get a table.
