We dined at Kalfis last night. Hubby had the softest and tender fillet steak possibly imagine. I had very tender lamb chops and our daughter enjoyed her prawn and avo salad. Nice and cozy fire was burning inside, and the staff was very friendly and attentive. Will be back.

Had dinner at Kalfi's on Saturday night during the Bastille festival weekend. We were very happy to find a table without booking in this family orientated restaurant. The food was good, we were happy and satisfied. It was not fine dining, it was just honest good food and a busy friendly atmosphere. A place the whole family can enjoy.

They are defenitely pet friendly and even offered a water bowl for our dog. We sat on the covered stoep gazing out at the "goings on" in Franschhoek Our waitress, Sunette was amazing - very professional and attentive... More

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.
