We had decided to go to the Craft festival at Stellenbosch and was going to overnight in Franshhoek. The festival was a huge disappointment, left cold and hungry. We discovered this place hidden away in the main road and what a treat. The service was fantastic, the restaurant beautiful and the food exactly what we needed to change the day... More

My husband and I went to Allora for my birthday on Saturday, 16 October. Our starters were delicious and so flavourful. We both had steak for mains, and the steaks were done exactly to order and the accompaniments were well thought out and also bursting with flavour. Dessert was tiramisu, which was very delicately flavoured and the perfect end for... More

This restaurant was recommended by a few locals and so we decided to dine here. We were not disappointed and enjoyed our meal and the ambiance.

Visited here for a quick meal one evening - stayed all evening. What a terrific place, and the management and staff were so attentive. Well worth a visit in town.

What a beautiful, simple and unpretentious place - I loved it, we arrive very late as all the guests were arriving at different times to Franschoek! But the staff was accommodating and so welcoming! Would definitely come here again!

Allure was recommended by the Hotel Housekeeper as somewhere they like to eat, as opposed to the many fancier places around. The service was great, I had the Mussels to start and my wife had the Salad Rustica which included some lovely roasted Aubergine (Eggplant) and Artichokes with home made Pesto. For mains we had the Pork Fillet in Mustard... More

Been here more than once & everytime I eat something different. The staff are helpful and neat. The atmosphere is relaxing and elegent. The Italian style food is just great! Bathrooms are very clean as well. There is always someone from the staff around to assist you if you need it. Definitely worth it!

Used to love eating here, but food quality has taken a dramatic down turn. Fresh ingredients have been replaced with preserved, low quality options. Overall, an unpleasant and distasteful experience.

We waited a long long time for the meal. They came couple of times to apologize. At the end, when we got the steak it was over cooked and we needed to wait again for a new one. When it finally arrived it was a good one. They gave us a desert and coffee on the house at the end.

Venison carpaccio and melon prosciutto entree both great. My marinara pizza good although would like more topping and the spaghetti marinara came as a tomato based sauce instead of oil and garlic as requested ....more seafood please. Good environment. Slow service.

Thank rhondalil
