Not exactly 'haute cuisine', but the Pub atmosphere was good and the babotie delicious! Good value for money and a short walk in the pouring rain from our B & B

Thanks Hans and Marida, for a lovely breakfast . It was awesome to be treated with homemade bread, liver with smoor, bacon, mushrooms etc. We will be back. Enjoyed the homemade bread. Took me one a trip down memory lane, when we had breakfast on the farm. Love your Restaurant and you've made my day thanks. Marlene

We went for breakfast and decided on toasties. Firstly they got the order wrong, instead of Ham Cheese Tomato on Brown bread, it was Chicken Mayo. We accepted the one but my wife preferred a HCT. This arrived later on White. The food was cold and really tasteless! The owner was wondering around and did not even stop at our... More

I went to Hans and Marida's place with a group of friends on our way to continue wine tasting. We were warmly welcomed by the staff. We ordered the sample platter for two and it was delicious. I enjoyed the food and cozy environment of the restaurant.

We are from Port Elizabeth and it was our 1st visit to Franschoek . We googled beforehand and decided to go to Kalfi's. Lovely food and lovely people. Will definitely go again :-)

We used to go to Kalfi's almost every Sunday, but sadly it just lack that special feeling.... It feel a bit overpriced, and in general not the same ambiance it used to have. We've decided to check out other restaurants in Franschoek and believe me, there is quite a choice for bikers.

Nothing outstanding. The food was average, the chips was fried in old oil and one could immediately taste it. However, we were so hungry that we didn't complain. We were also not in a mood for sending food back and forth. In future, we would definitely consider other options for breakfast.

I recently visited Franschhoek on a rainy day and had a crave for a good malva pudding. My sister and I walk up and down looking for a place to relax with my family and enjoy a LEKKE pudding. At last we were directed to Kalfi's Restaurant and what a supprise. I was served with the best malva pudding ever... More

I have visited Kalfi's three times during the last three months and enjoyed consistently good service and excellent food on all three these occasions. The servings are generous and the prices, very reasonable. Whether it's peak season or a quiet evening, my experience has always been good.

Well located, a welcome log fire on a chilly evening and pleasant staff. But, oh dear, the worst plate of food in recent memory. I think the component parts had been stored in the fridge, thrown together and bunged in the microwave. The pasta was gummy and the bolognese sauce had a strange, discomfiting texture.
