A disappointing and somewhat sad place, and we paid the price of being in a hurry and choosing the first one that comes to hand. Mistake! The chips that came with the substantially overpriced hake was handmade, and OKish, but the overcooked hake varied between soft and not so pliable rubber. If you want to consume food this ordinary, at... More

I was never disappointed when visiting Kalfis Restaurant. Good tasty food, cooked to perfection, excellent service, nice ambiance, nice cozy fire, altogether a nice Restaurant, and food well priced. Quality and quantity.keep it up, we'll be back. Love the nice vetkoek we got while waiting for our food to be prepared.

Service was good but sadly let down by the quality of the food R68-00 for six crumbed mushrooms and my sirloin steak looked like a minute steak Had to send it back as did one of our guests as the steak was cold and not cooked as per request

We were so impressed that the staff remembered us after a two year gap and we were welcomed like long lost family. Kalfi's is well located on the main drag with a fair number of tables set up outside on the stoep - a great place to watch the beautiful people of Franschhoek go by. A good sized menu with... More

we have been going to Kalfi's for breakfast every time we attend the FLF and have never been disappointed. Try their Biker's breakfast!

We wanted something less formal after all the fancy-pants restaurants in Franschoek. Kalfi's is the answer. Quality is still good, but you can relax with a burger instead of "duck l'orange" and still get a good, tasty meal.

We tend to eat here every time that we are in Franschhoek. The food is genuine South African fare - tasty and good.

After a late landing and rushing to get to Franschoek with most restaurants already closed to our surprise Kalfi's was. We had a very welcome reception and so was the food....
