Divine little drinking spot in the centre of town. We can sit here for hours enjoying some delicious - and local - MCC. Note that there is no French Champagne on the menu, otherwise their name would be very different right? :) I really enjoy this spot on a sunny day; the majority of the place is outside. Only disappointment... More

We stumbled on this place while walking the high street. It's set in a little courtyard with tables (and umbrellas) outside We both has really delicious salads (I really recommend the springbok carpaccio) and of course a glass of delicious local MCC sparkling wine. There's even an outdoor sofa to sit on and have a relaxing coffee after the meal

We stopped by for coffee one day and after finding out what MCC stood for we returned the next day for bubbles and oysters - delicious. We shared a mixed cheese/vegetable platter which was on the tiny side, but the scones were huge and excellent.

I have never been as embarrassed in a restaurant before. I ordered a venison pot pie, the meat tasted burnt and the potatoes tasted old. I discreetly asked the waiter to return it to the kitchen as it tasted burnt. The chef (who is also the manager/owner) came out to our table and said out loud in an insulting voice... More

Phil the owner sure knows how to make his guest feel welcome. I had one of his special sandwiches on the special brown nut bread. Excellent!!! The next day I went back and purchased a loaf. Phil was so kind to sell me a loaf. For sure try MCC and ask for the brown nut bread.

Found mcc by accident how lucky we were.we only called for a cup of tea but could not resist having a snack too Their own bread is baked on the premises and the owner an ex Liverpudlian was charming and very friendly without being overbearing. There appeared to be quite a few established regular customers who were all ready to... More

This review is pure hogwash. I have lived in Franschhoek for a year and Phillip the owner is always there! The food is always good and service friendly. If you don't like children playing you should stay at home because children play EVERYWHERE!! Nothing annoys me more than exaggerated reviews aimed at being nothing but nasty and not constructive.

After experiencing many restaurants here in South Africa, we must say that this restaurant was the best by far. The food is delicious, simple, yet woven with many flavors to provide a wonderful eating experience. The chef/owner visited our table to ensure that our meal was satisfactory. His presence added to the positive experience! The only reason this place did... More

I am not sure if one can comment on another persons review but I am quite shocked by Cbroodryk's review. I would be quite offended reading this review being a parent. Clearly the reviewer needs to go and redo her course on Primatology to realise that children "screaming like monkeys" are merely children cooling off in a fountain in the... More

Apart from the view in Franschoek of the mountains, we had an awful experience at this restaurant! I'm disappointed that tourists visit my country and have to be subjected to such awful food!! 25mins for a simple sandwich, which I might add was disgusting and lacked avo despite it being a main ingredient!! No manager presence!! Waitress was unfriendly, unhelpful... More
