Get there early enough to be seated with a glass of wine ready for the sunset and you are in for several treats. The sunset is fabulous and the food excellent. Service was a cut above all the other restaurants that we visited in South Africa and surroundings first class. If I ever visit the area again I will visit... More

Table behind us where two men who picked up two women dining alone. The night was horrible as they spoke loud with crude remarks, inappropriate language and physical sexual advances. Not a good place for families and children. Managers were hopeless in controlling the situation.

We had a great meal here. Beautiful setting/views, very good service and we loved the food.We came for lunch whilst on the wine tasting trail but we had pre-booked. So glad we did, by the time we arrived here, we were ready for lunch and we were not disappointed- it was fab, can't wait to re-visit again one day.

We enjoyed a sumptuous family Christmas Luncheon topped off with excellent service. A wide variety of fresh food was on offer as well as a good wine selection. The relaxed ambiance and sweeping views across the Franschhoek Valley made for a memorable Festive celebration.

Having made the journey up the mountain it was so well worth going before the sun set. The views are spectacular and we had a table right at the front of the dining area on the terrace. The food and service were excellent and enjoyed by us both once we had taken endless photo's. The atmosphere was very jolly and... More

Spent the day wine tasting on the tram with family in tow. Booked the Roca en route for lunch - hats of to the guys for accommodating us as we were a party of 15! Had the oysters to start and ostrich as a main. The best steak I've ever had was ostrich so the bar was set and communicated... More

Lovely setting with live music. Good place to arrive early (say 6.30pm) and watch the sun go down. The feta samosa starter was lovely- the pork/apple starter a little disappointing. The ostrich mains was fabulous -perfectly cooked, very tender and tasty, but the rib-eye steak was sadly NOT rib-eye...definitely sirloin and not as tasty as it should have been... never... More
