As we were recommended to try ostrich and antelope steaks, we did both. Even waiting for food was quite long we were very happy enjoying the views on the surrounding vineyards and mountains. Somehow it recalled us Sacred Valley in Peru. Amazing place.

Now this is good food, with a spectacular view, warm ambiance and no hint of pretentiousness. The meal from start to finish ticked every box and was matched by equally good service. We loved the sesame crusted Salmon and Feta samoosas- we will definitely be...More

It just seems meant to be that the location of Roca on Dieu Donne is actually translated as Rock on God Given land. This becomes apparent on first observing the iconic views of the Franschoek Valley from the upper deck of the double volume Roca Restaurant. The visionary behind the Dieu Donne wine estate, Robert Maingard, has no doubt inculcated the dynamic restaurant proprietor, Craig Sherrell, to use the space in which the energy of sacred geometry has been introduced. A visit here can be lengthy as the beauty; the food, the wine and the service have an amazing effect. The upper indoor space, seating 120 covers has its special aura, complimented by the Seed and Flower of Life and the Cross of Loraine.
