Wine was very good a bit overpriced for what it is. Food was unbelievable and they made every effort to give me meals that were allergy specific.

The Holden Manz wineyard is apparently owned by mr Holden and Mr Manz, the latter being German. This must be the reason for the surreal experience I had when being seated on the balcony terrace with the superb view of the Franschhoek mountains and then hearing: German music! Of the serious, 'heavy' type. Even the two German couples who were... More

We expected a lot more.. We had a nice dinner but it really lacked atmosphere and the food was only so-so in comparison to the outstanding bread and wine, la petite ferme, pierneef a la motte etc

We were in Holden Manz vineyard as part of the WineTram tour and we had decided to have lunch there (I booked a table in advance). We had the wine tasting outside, and then had our lunch upstairs in the inside which was perfect as it was a bit chilly outside. They even had a woodfire in the room which... More

This was simply one of the best lunches I have ever had. I eat out a lot in London and agree with the critics perceptions that to make a good restaurant you simply need good food, good service and a good setting, well Franshhoek Kitchen has them in abundance and then some. We had booked a table on the balcony... More

We cycled from town and started with the wine tasting menu (R40). Gerard and Bhudda were very helpful and informative. Lunch was lovely with the most stunning views. Highly recommended.

From the view to the last bite this is a fairy tale come true!! Well mannered friendly staff delivered delightful gourmet morsel after morsel. The springbok rump was exquisite. Finished with a symphony of chocolate. I can highly recommend this venue as if not the best one of the best in Franschoek. Well done!!!

This restaurant is incredible! The service was fantastic. We were picked up by Llewellyn, who is the general manager, from our hotel. He was very professional and friendly. We arrived in a timely manner and were seated quickly. My husband and I started with the duck liver and smoked potato salad. Both were amazing. We then got the Cape Hake... More
