Gorgeous situation overlooking the mountains and valley to enjoy while sipping drinks and studying the menu. I had springbok tartare with quails egg and soy to start. Mind blowing. Siobhan had mozzarella and tomato, also great. I had goat for main course, rich tasty and satisfying. Siobhan opted for king clip, again lovely. Desserts also outstanding. Service delightful. Including champagne,... More

We only stopped here for lunch so I cannot comment on dinner. The lunch was excellent if slightly expensive and the views are to die for.

Thanks for the review, will pass on to our kitchen. We find it very hard to comment on price, as we have had various feedback with some commenting on average prices, others low, others high. We do like to think that our prices are in line with similar restaurants. The Haute Cabriere Restaurant team. More

The interior of this restaurant is based around a wine cellar and has very good ambience as a result. The greeting from the female host could have been swifter and warmer but our extremely jolly male waiter quickly made us feel welcome. Haute Cabriere is rare in Franschhoek in that it still offers some of their most excellent wine at... More

Thanks for this review. We will address the front of house staff issues, as we like to be attentive and welcoming. We are very sorry regarding the steak, if we were aware, we would gladly replaced the dish. We do pride ourselves with our cellar prices, it does make a difference.

Beautiful sunset views. Bubbly from the estate is up there (personally not a fan of most of their table wines- just personal preference). Service is engaging, fun and sassy while still being crisp and efficient. Good ambience and with a good buzz yet not overwhelming. Food is delicious (chef recommends meat medium rare to medium, but if you like it... More

Went for dinner and our hotel had booked a table for us explaining that we were vegetarian and were assured that it would be ok. On arrival, they did not have our booking, one vegetarian option. Disappointed as the views were amazing.

Hello, We are very sorry about this. We have an online booking system that is working well, but will take it up with our front of house staff. We do have a vegetarian starter and main on the menu, and our chefs are more than willing to edit a dish to accommodate a dietary requirement. We sincerely apologize for your... More

We ate here twice during our stay just round the corner. It's great for just sitting outside taking in the view whilst sampling their wines. We enjoyed sampling the bubbly, to the unusual Chardonnay/Pinot Noir and unwooded and wooded Pinot Noir's that we sampled more with a beautifully presented dinner and lunch the next day. The food was full of... More

Hello, Thanks for the feedback. Our goal is to ensure guests have great experience. On the steak issue, as it's a natural product, sometimes things do go wrong.

Perfect hake in tempura batter, crispy chips with tomato relish and sauce. Interesting bread and basil and cream cheese dip. Well worth a visit.

It's a good walk up hill from the village so we were lucky that Hildegard von Arnim, the owners wife picked us up in her car on the way up. We enjoyed a wounderful champain taisting before getting spoiled by a great luncheon. Excellent food and great service!

Description
Franschhoek's iconic Haute Cabriere Restaurant & Terrace is well known for its unique location, set into the side of Franschhoek Mountain and overlooking the Valley. Soaring arches and the view over the cathedral-like Pinot Noir Barrel Maturation Cellar below offer an experience which is not to be missed. On sunny days, guests can enjoy the beautiful vistas over Franschhoek from the terrace, while on cool days a roaring fire creates a cosy atmosphere. Haute Cabriere's menu revolves around seasonal availability of produce, which is mostly sourced locally or even grown organically on the farm. The flavours and textures on the plate are specifically designed to complement the range of Haute Cabriere wines and Pierre Jourdan Cap Classiques - all of them served by the glass and by the bottle at cellar door prices. Bringing all of these elements together, Haute Cabriere offers the complete marriage of food and wine.
