The food was tasty, good portions and in Franschhoek, was good value for money. Great for a quick bite, or a relaxed family dinner.

Excellent service received. Very hot day, the waiters went out of their way to make us feel comfortable. Extra effort put in to accommodate the kids and their demanding needs. Overall a very joyous experience.
