We wanted home cooking that catered for vegetarians and meat eaters and was somewhere between pub and posh restaurant. This place has fabulous service and food and is the only place to serve vegey babotie! The owner happened to make a white chocolate baked cheesecake while we were here thst is divine. Worth coming just for that!

Had to do an urgent trip to Hermanus and stopped at my favourite Restaurant in Franschhoek. Was pleasantly surprised with the Chefs special of the day. Nice succulent crispy duck in a berry juice. Just what i needed. Keep up the good work you guys. High five to all of you.

Good, honest food and extremely friendly service! Had a fabulous evening sitting outside on the covered stoep (we had our little elderly sausage dog, Bella, with us). All our meals were delicious and we had a thoroughly enjoyable evening! Would visit again for sure.

It is really difficult to find badly prepared food in this gourmand's paradise. Alas, we finally succeeded. Hubby and I ate at Kalfis last week and we were both sick as dogs the... More
