we needed something to eat to break up our wine tasting tour and Allora was the right place at the right time. Conveniently located off the main strip in Franschhoek, Allora is a modern and well designed restaurant with a good menu with lots of choice, friendly and helpful staff and - of course - a good wine list. Great... More

Ok, in Franschhoek it is difficult to impress compared to others. But I did not feel well here. Why are some customers (we) get paper napkins when others ( neighbour table) has got the real ones ? My seafood linguine was far from perfect : overspiced in an "overpowdered" manner, overcooked. Everybody on table agreed the food was " ok,... More

If you are looking for honest Italian cuisine, then this is the place you should visit. We were picked up from our wine estate by the restaurant and had a lovely table right besides the fire place. Also the staff was very friendly and food was delicious. I can recommend the signature dish Filetto ai Porcini. Yumm!

4 adults, 3 children. From Cape Town and Switzerland. Cold winter day in Franschhoek. Warm reception from the staff. Attentive service from Peter. 7 different meals ranging from pizza for the kids, pasta for some adults and an outstanding veal Marsala. Made for a fantastic meal.

Great experience over-all; greeted with smiles as we walked in from off the freezing cold streets of Franschhoek after a day of exploring the little town and its surrounding wine farms; sat right by the fire-place which was stoked and topped up with wood throughout the evening, our waitress was extremely friendly and helpful, my mum and I were desperate...

We had a delicious, simple lunch at Allora. The venue is beautiful and we weren't expecting much as we hadn't heard of it. But it really was worth the stop and the meal was deliciously prepared.

We popped into Allora on a really freezing, winters night and were welcomed by a crackling open fire! The wine list is extensive and impressive. Our waitress pleasant and easy to talk to. She recommended two amazing dishes which were 'spot on'! This restaurant which recently relocated from the main road into Franschhoek, has settled down nicely in the village-... More

Allora delivers personalised service, all warmly wrapped up in a good value great tasting meal. My meal is always served to perfection, and consistently good. It is rare to find such a degree of owner involvement in a restaurant, hence the great service levels. Our waitress Lemercia is in a class of her own, knowledgeable about the wine selection, and...

This is a good option if you have a heavy lunch or want a break from fine dining. The restaurant cleverly provides tapas and a complimentary shuttle to and from your hotel. We loved the ease, convenience and food was just right.
