“Very good”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 3, 2012 via mobile

Went twice for breakfast. They bake their own breads, pastries etc. Had two very yummy breakfasts.
Its a bit cold to sit here for lunch/dinner on a chilly day (you really need to sit under one of the heaters), but I would love to be here on warm day.

“Excellent lunch”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 27, 2012

On arriving in Franschhoek the choice of amazing restuarants can be a bit overwhelming. We went to the Salmon bar on recommendation of a local chef and it did not let us down! The best moules frites I've ever had, washed down with a beautiful Sauvingon Blanc from the valley. Great service too, a brilliant lunch spot.

“Perfect Spot for a Relaxed Seafood Feast”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 29, 2012

We had a lovely, relaxed lunch in the courtyard at The Salmon Bar earlier this afternoon. The food was gorgeously presented, delicious and good value for money. We both loved and highly recommend the pot-stickers!
