Service that goes beyond

This restaraunt was memorable for the lovely service. It was a chilly day and my friend and I felt like a spit of Gluwein..... Although it wasn't on the menu, our waiter trotted off and whipped some up for us to go with our most divine soup

Hearty Greek food - the best lamb shanks ever! Lovely bar and welcoming atmosphere, Kalfis was just what we needed on a cold, rainy winter's night. Recommended.

We waited over 1hour and 30 minutes for our food. The last person to receive their food waited an additional 20 min after everyone else had received their food. The quality of the food was not good.

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.

Having used the www.petfriendly.co.za site to find a suitable pet-friendly restaurant in Franschhoek, we visited Kalfi's in the Main Road for lunch. They are defenitely pet friendly and even offered a water bowl for our dog.
