You simply can't go wrong with the Chef's 5 Course Tasting Menu & Wine Pairings. The two of us had two totally different meals, and it was fun to share bites and sips to experience most of what the restaurant had to offer. The highlight of the meal was definitely the pickled fish stew cooked in paper - something we... More

Beautiful restaurant with excellent service That's it I am afraid the food was dreadful Cold goats cheese, mushroom tart that had no taste whatsoever. Impossible but true they even made a fillet steak almost inedible All in all a place to avoid especially with so much on offer in Franschhoek

We really enjoyed our meal from staff to finish. The warm greeting, quick service and knowledgeable staff made a really elegant evening. The food was delicious and I really enjoyed the style of smaller plates... I could have chosen them all! means I will be back very soon...

We popped in on the off chance having seen it was a new opening. The restaurant was busy but the staff friendly and efficient. It was very noisy not maybe a good choice for a quiet couple. Our waitress suggested we order 3/4 dishes each. The mushroom "melktert" was outstanding. Sadly the goats cheese salad was spoilt by being served... More

This was our first trip to Franchoek. The best dinner we've had on our Cape Town trip. We ordered several dishes and shared , each dish was savory delicous. Everyone enjoyed their meals. A great experience. A definite dinning spot in Franchoek.

Have now had two Hogmanay dinners here and am bowled over by the style, inventiveness, freshness and visual impact of the fabulous fayre that is created here. The prices reflect the quality and are reflective of the ingredients and environment. We dine here each holiday and have never been let down, I heartily recommend it to anyone who really enjoys...

The open kitchen and intimate dining area creates a great dining experience at Ryan's Kitchen. The three chefs on hand worked diligently and effortlessly (at least it appeared that way!). My wife and I had the prix fixe chef's tasting which I recommend. The meal included a large range of foods with a good amount of creativity and attention to... More
