We stayed over in Franshoek for a wedding over the weekend and on the Friday night looked for a nice but resasnable resturant for dinner. All the other resturants along the main street were very pricey, and then we found Alllora which was snuck away but looked warm & inviting. Upon entering we were asked if we had a reservation,...

Strolling around Franschoek trying to find an open restaurant for a late lunch we ended up here and wow! The staff was friendly and eager to assist! The food was top class and I had the best pasta ever. What a nice place with a great atmosphere ! Will definitely go back there on my next visit

Lovely ambience. Food is exceptional - and extremely good value. The fact that we could stroll there from our rented apartment helped a lot!

We went for dinner tonight. They had two veal dishes, a veal scallopine in lemon butter sauce (mine) and the other a scalloppine marsala (wife's). Both outstanding and large portions. We shared an equally satisfying cutlet appetizer which was also delicious. For desserts, I had something the waiter recommended, cant remember the name, and the wife had tiramisu. Wow, I... More

We were wandering aimlessly for dinner (note--reservations are recommended for Saturday nights!) and were directed to the site as possibly having a table. Inside it is actually 2 stories and much more spacious that it appears. The menu is Italian and the atmosphere warm, casual and enjoyable. The complimentary bread was excellent and they have a great wine list, including... More

The waiter was totally disengaged and did just the bare minimum, took the order, served the food and... More

Wonderful place which we stumbled across. Risotto dishes were spectacular as well as the pasta dishes with mushrooms. Wide range of wines but sadly mostly over priced. Atmosphere & amazing cuisine at very reasonable prices almost made up.

We followed the recommendations of our waiter and Had very good springbok carpaccio, kudu and prawn risotto among other things. It seems that each franchise has quite a bit of operational leeway as there was a good selection of wines from the area. Our waiter was also very knowledgeable about the wines. Only drawback: the location in a shopping centre... More

My wife and I recently had Sunday lunch at Allora. The bread is to die for and so was my risotto. A very pleasant dining experience.
