This Is A Very Confusing Restaurant Concept

When you enter this house/restaurant, it feels as though one has to walk through a diningroom, livingroom with couches to get to the back section which feels like a porch. My husband and I went to a Tappas Bar lunch in the back section of this restaurant on Christmas Day. We each ordered a... read more

This was a lovely location for drinks and tapas. The food was amazing and all the cocktails were delicious. We came here for lunch and drinks and both were great experiences.

How long to get a menu? How long to then place a order? How long to get drink? How long to pay? A few customers turn up at once and chaos ensues. Oh dear.

We came here for lunch which was so delicious... Tapas style plates which are great for sharing. We also went back in the evening for cocktails which were also superb. Thoroughly enjoyed our experience!

Our waitress must have been so tired, that she rushed us through our meal, clearing plates before we had finished eating, and not offering anything more to eat or drink. Our small tapas dishes were... More

Loads of lovely cocktails on offer before dinner and then a delightful choice of tapas dishes and lovely local wine - Four Paws - yum yum. We had popcorn prawns, duck and... More

This has been a regular pre-dinner drink venue and has always been exceptionally good. Consistant. A must visit experience in Franschhoek.
