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...

If you like Italian style food then this is the place. We went on a few occasions and tried different dishes, all excellent including a delightful Pizza. They also have a complimentary transport arrangement so you can enjoy the extensive wine menu.

We just wanted something simple to eat and ended up here. I'm so glad we did! The food was excellent, beautifully presented,nvery tasty but also very inexpensive. The restaurant is bigger than it looks from the outside but as it's on a couple of levels it does not seem huge when you are sitting down You won't regret eating here

None of our party was keen to eat here, but the kids were tired and so we sat down. So pleased we did. Really tasty well presented food. The fillet was the best I have ever had and the Calamari Salad - R55 Bargain was really good. We all enjoyed our meal and found the prices very reasonable.

Delicious food and wine. We had veal pasta and T-bone steak, together with a nice bottle of wine. The staff was patient with us, despite having arrived a bit late for Franschhoek times.

We went to Allora for Valentine's night, as we did 2 years ago. The restaurant has moved since then from a car journey out of town to right in the centre of town. The restaurant is smart but friendly and very atmospheric. Because it was Valentine's night we were about to order a glass of fizz, but no need we... More

Franschhoek must have one of the highest densities of great restaurants in the world. And so, when you find a place that's decent, but not especially good, you end up much more disappointed than you would have been if you'd found the same place in somewhere less richly blessed with good food. The meals were basic and average, and the... More

Nice place to eat at a good price. We walked In at 14:00 and they were still openned. We had tuna and pasta, both good, but not superb.

We ate here in January - the weather had turned really unseasonal and it was pouring with rain so we had to eat inside. We were upstairs and it felt a little too hot and stuffy - the experience is probably much better if you eat outside. The food and service were OK.

We had two visits to this restaurant on our recent trip to SA. On the first we booked through our guest house and they sent a car with some other guests to pick us up. This was fun and a nice touch as we wouldn't have easily got home otherwise as we were planning on a couple of glasses of... More
