“Relaxed, but quality”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 17, 2012 via mobile

A really nice place for a Sunday lunch. Food is ver good quality and tasty. We've now been here twice and really enjoyed it both times. Not too "starchy", but also not too casual. Very goid value for money.

“Nice enough”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 6, 2012

Had dinner there and the balance between value for money and quality is just about right. Service a bit slow, but all in all a nice place. If you are staying in Franschhoek though it is too far out to walk and you should stick to the restaurants in town.

“Avoid if possible”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed July 29, 2012

Although the service was good, we found the food less than mediocre. The tasting portion appetizers were all over-salted. The entrees were even worse. The trout had a terrible sweet sauce that tasted like somebody put apricot jelly out of a can onto the fish. The prawn pasta tasted like it had sauce out of a can as well. The waitress and owner were very nice and tried to be accommodating, but the food was not even good enough to have even a few bites and we decided not to finish the meal.
