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.

Franschoek is considered the food and wine capital of South Africa with good reason. We frequently travel from Joburg to Franschhoek just to enjoy the culinary delights. 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

We loved the food we eat in this restaurant. It was very well priced and tasty with a good wine list. The decor in this resturand not much to look at but the food and service made up for this.

Very average, lacking any real flavours and simple cooking not well executed. Very slow service. Was hoping for a quick supper - didn't get one!

Expect tasty homely meals, not gourmet. Friendly service but a very limited slightly over priced wine list. Also one of the value wine options not available when we visited.

Once again we 'popped in' at Kalfi's today for what was suppose to be a quick lunch... We ended up leaving quite late stuffed full of amazingly delicious food like always.. Thanks to Marida, Hans and their team for their hospitality, great food, and brilliant service! I would highly recommend Kalfi's to anyone.
