We hadn't made dinner reservations and tried our luck at Allora after it was recommended to us by a lovely lady who ran a local art gallery. They managed to squeeze us in and we enjoyed a fantastic dinner. My wife and I had been to Allora in Bedfordview and while the menu is quite different the dining experience is... More

Booked in for an early dinner, as we were staying a little bit out of town, well actually about one mile. The food is Italian style and the extensive menu needed a little explaining, for example kudu. Turns out to be a type of antelope, similar to venison. I had the kudu stew with gnocchi which was quite tasty. My... More

We experienced less than attentive service waiting far too long after being seated and it was not easy to catch our waiters eye. Nevertheless the waiters were knowledgeable, friendly and helpful and looked particularly smart in their neat and stylish uniforms. Congratulations to the uniform designer. The ambience is excellent but the tables are quite close. My semi frozen venison... More

We have eaten here on several occasions. The food is consistently good and of high quality. Reasonable prices and attentive service. Excellent, authentic thin base pizza as well as some good classical romano dishes and a few modern twists.

Allora is in the centre of Franschhoek and therefor handy and accessible for most tourists visiting the area. It is not fine dining but it serves honest good food at a reasonable price. The staff are efficient and helpful. I would definitely recommend it to families and anyone looking for this type of meal.

The so called Italian cuisine does not taste italian. The quality of the dishes is questionnable. Starter portions are ridiculously small The welcome was very poor like " Do you have a booking? No. So I am afraid we are fully booked. Ok but can't we have a table outside? Yes, maybe, I have to check" And we finally got... More

A full menu can be a worry in producing quality food, but that is not the case with Allora. We have enjoyed their menu for both dinner and lunch and never been disappointed. The food tastes as if each dish has been specially prepared for you and personal requests are catered for with a smile. Service is great, too! Dinner... More

I visited with two friends from Boston, US. The guesthouse where we stayed recommended Allora and made the reservation for a Friday dinner. We were received in a most welcoming manner and I whispered a few words to JP about my guests being from the States. He literally did everything and more to make us feel welcome and important. He...
