The service at the wine tasting is shocking! Staff sat behind the counter, we had to fetch our own wine constantly. The cheese platter is a big disappointment, not the money's worth.

You should take a break from walking through the shops in Franshoek to have a meal at Dieux Donne. The views of the mountains and the vineyards in the valley are breath taking and relaxing at the same time. The menu was full of interesting choices. I finally settled on the marinated ostrich which was very flavorful and everyone else... More

Do come to Dieu Donne during your Franschhoek trip. We love the wine, the hosts, and the restaurant. We first did wine tastings by the tasting room outside then we moved to the restaurant and dined outside as a party of six. The hostess in the wine room even recognized us from the year before! The restaurant had well plated... More

We had lunch at this winery on the advice of our guide on the Wine tram. What a great choice. After a little wine tasting we settled in for a lovely lunch. I had ostrich steak and it was superb. My husband had prawns and enjoyed them too. The service was excellent. Very enjoyable.

We were in Franschoek at the end of April. Such stunning views from the beautiful garden area. It was a perfect autumn day. Crisp air and blue sky. We went for the wine tasting but would love to have lunch on our next trip.

Had sundowner and dinner of the very best quality. Very romantic to sit outside, sip Champagne while smelling the Thyme and Rosemarie bushes and watch the sun go down over the hill.

I went there in January in the peak of summer with friends, we had a lovely wine tasting session on the grass with the most amazing views you will ever see. By far the best viewpoint of that area as it so high up. We were then taken to our table, we all had various meat dishes, the food is... More

I went here for lunch with a wine tour. I had the lamb shank and a glass of merlot. Both were delicious. It was not crowded so it was a nice atmosphere to be able to talk and enjoy the view overlooking the hill. The staff was all incredibly friendly and it was easy to separate checks for the good...
