We had eaten @ Reuben's @ the one & only previously, but as we were in Franschhoek, there was simply no other place to eat but @ Reuben's as we had wanted to try this for a while. We were not disappointed with the service, the coziness of the restaurant and of course, the food was delightful. The presentation of... More

fantastic service as you would expect, but an imaginative menu to titivate the tastebuds... We salivated for ages over the choices. Delicious food, cosy atmosphere. Simply wonderful.

Let me start by saying we ordered 3 salads for a table of 12.... cost us R800 for the 3 salads. Yes R800. There was a chef recommendation of their burgers. What a laugh.....R100 and no better than the corner take away. If you want to eat very very expensive, below average food, this is the restaurant to visit.

The tables are very close together, the service is fine up until the point at which you order and then the waiter dissapears....no one bothers to check if your meal is ok! The gnoccci main course was ok but my miso glazed sweetcorn was cold when served. After some time and effort I eventually tracked down our waiter and was... More

Innovative and excellent food; the specials were outstanding. Ambience feels like a neighbourhood restaurant. Good value coming from the UK

Reuben's came highly recommended. You have to book well in advance, as it is so popular. The food and service were both fine, but nothing with the WOW factor, and we were rather packed in like sardines. Far too close to the table next to us - we could easily hear their conversation. For my taste, it was a little... More

We had a great meal in Ruebens having arrived and not booked any where for our first night. I had an excellent but unusual curry. Great flavours and really interesting rice flavoured with oranges.

In a town of good eating places Reuben's is right up there. We enjoyed excellent starters and mains with some really nice dry white wine. Our waitress was jolly and helpful. So it's a real pity when we arrived that we were left hanging around at the front desk. A young man nearby clearly thought the polishing a tray of... More

Franschhoek is a wonderful town with lots of interesting looking restaurants. We were recommended Reubens and I was a little disappointed. The food was good but by South African standards was not as good as many restaurants and I thought it was a bit overpriced, again by South African standards. The atmosphere was good but the music was a bit... More
