We popped in here for a drink on one occasion and ate on another. Had a couple of pizzas which were a good size and tasted good too. Lovely ambience and good outside area.

We were staying in Franschhoek for just over a week and visited this restaurant 5 times and were not disappointed. Attention to service by happy waiters and the owners is always an indication and the presentation and quality of the food complimented our first impressions.

We were recommended to eat here by locals. The building, staff and food were amazing. I would seriously recommend this Italian to anyone visiting Franschhoek.

Good service, nice ambiance. Our starters came a little too quickly, having been waiting in the wings and completely pre-prepared. Not that it's a bad thing, but they tasted it. The mains were better and the line fish was good. The chocolate mousse dessert was disappointing having been made with a minimum of chocolate and egg and containing gelatine. Pizza... More

Me and my American friend visited Franschhoek and we came across this restaurant on tripadvisor. What an awesome experience! Attentive service, fireplace which was much needed in the cold and creates a perfect ambience. Wine is reasonably priced and food beautifully presented and tasteful.

Lovely food. I had my own vegetarian platter made-up of risotto, vegetables and country potatoes. My husband had the steak with the porcini mushroom sauce. We had tiramissu and chocolate mousse. Everything was excellent. The warm atmosphere on the cold night was what attracted us initially.

I arranged my birthday party for 20 guests here. The table was all set out when we arrived and it looked lovely. Atmosphere was casual and we could enjoy pre dinner drinks along with pre arranged starters. My guests all enjoyed their meals and our waitress was very attentive but not in our space. A lovely venue.
