We called here for lunch during a day's wine tour; our tour guide recommended it (and indeed joined us for lunch there). It was a dreadful day weather wise; torrential rain, so the roaring fire inside the restaurant was a welcome sight. We ordered the potato skins with bacon and cheese sauce for me, and chicken wings for the OH... More

We had a lovely evening meal here. An unpretentious exterior & very fresh food & varied menu with some traditional African dishes on offer. Very nice waitress & very friendly owner. A perfect stop for a relaxed freshly cooked meal. Recommended.

After having fine dinning for the last several days, we wanted something a little more like home. Kalfi's hit all the right marks. Great food at good prices in a cozy atmosphere. A great place to be.

I was originally a bit sceptic visiting Kalfi's (considering previous reviews) but was very suprised by the great service and quality of food we've received. This was truly a great experience and will visit them again if we are in Franschhoek.

About a year ago I wrote a review on what was a terrible dining experience at Kalfi's and I haven't been back there until a couple of weeks ago. I was slightly nervous, not knowing whether I was just going to have the same experience. Well I'm glad to say it went much better!The food was good, staff was friendly... More

Wonderful cozy place with inside burning fire which helped us recover from the cold outside. Ordered the game schnitzel and tasted great.
