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.

We had an early Sunday lunch here. We were greeted at the door and found the management and staff to be friendly and attentive. The vegetarian choices are great with a better than average variety. The dishes are well priced and the food simply tasted great. The wine list has enough options to satisfy everyone. Additionally, the bathrooms are well... More

We had been recommended another restaurant, but after an argument about tables we just happened on Allora. Friendly staff, a great atmosphere and great food turned our evening from annoying to happy. I had the chicken livers and the veal, both with wonderful sauces, and my husband had stuffed and grilled shrimp, which were plentiful and very tasty.

Walking towards the entrance of Allora, you'd expect a small cafe-style place. Our eyes widened at the size of the restaurant on two levels. Due to its decoration, it's still very cozy, has a friendly vibe to it - and really nice food.

We live slap bang between Stellenbosch, Paarl and Franschhoek and are blessed with numerous high end, fancy, expensive, fine dining restaurants. Our challenge is to find a normal, good, value for money restaurant where we can just pop in any night and have a good meal. Last night we decided to go to Allora and they moved into town into...
