“Lovely setting, nice place for lunch”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 25, 2013

We stopped at Bread & Wine for lunch on our first day just after arriving in Cape Town. It is in a lovely shaded courtyard, but lacks the views that some other restaurants offer. My partner had the wagyu burger which apparently was amazing. I had wildebeest wrapped in bacon which was flavoursome but chewy. Overall nice place for lunch but not the best we have been to in Franschhoek area.

“Great place for lunch”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 23, 2013 via mobile

We visited looking for a late lunch. The menu choices were good and we were able to choose some good options. I had pulled pork my partner a wonderful soup with some of the wonderful bread made on site. Would definitely recommend.

“Actually just OK”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed December 23, 2013

Food was nothing special, flies were in abundance, prices were extreme, although the foreigners seemed happy.

The setting is lovely; but then again there are 100 farms in the area that are equally attractive.

Kids pizza was nice, i advise avoiding the fish n chips that REALLY smell like fish. Never a good sign.

Service was quick and efficient, if a little lacking in knowledge re more complex menu items.

“Memorable meal!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 22, 2013

You know when you are surrounded by foreigners that you are paying a premium for your meal; this was the case at Bread and Wine, but having said that, the meal was outstanding!

The Miss Molly wines are good value and delicious!

PS. Probably the best chocolate truffles I have ever had!

“Don't bother”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed December 21, 2013

Pretentious and overpriced with ordinary food in a pretty location. The food sounds exotic on the menu but was very dull on the plate.
