The staff was very friendly and nice. The food was tasty and I enjoyed the wine. My friends liked their dinner very much as well.

No need to pay that much for wine in the heart of the wine region and there is little choice on the menu. The tapas portions makes this a bad choice for dinner. The staff are very friendly.

We had a casual dinner here during our visit to Franschoek. The food was very tasty and the service was good. I'd certainly go back again.

Excellent, friendly and enthusiastic staff, serving beautifully presented and extremely flavor some dishes.... The wine is served perfectly chilled and the ambience great.... Definitely worthy of another and another visit

Located at Le Quartier Français, this tapas-focused hub was JUST what we needed to end off an incredible weekend in Franschhoek! It was a gorgeous day, so we sat outside and shared a bottle of Sauvignon Blanc. Recommended to us by word of mouth, we immediately opted for the Tempura Fine Beans with a Soya and Sesame dipping sauce (so... More

My husband payed R70 for a Sav Blanc. I thought that was pretty pricey. Ambience was nice. He sat outside.

We were late for the lunch and the kitchen stayed open for our sake. That is very much appreciated. They serve an interesting blend of tapas inspired dishes. The fennel sallad was great, and the fish cakes tasted very good. The dishes did however not make my taste buds pop. I can defenatly recommend the place if you want to... More

We had a pre dinner drink here before eating at The Tasting Room. The bar area has a nice atmosphere and they make some great cocktails. Worth going there before dinner regardless of where you may be eating

I always have the best coffee there served in Le Creuset cups, straight out of the Le Creuset shop connected to it. You can have a "petit breakfast" which contains of 5 choices of small breakfasts, like eggs benedict (perfect), croissant with home made jam or last but not least the mouth watering "Sticky Bun" which is to die for!!...

We sat in the conservatory area at the back of the premises which looks over the small garden. Service was good and we had a drink fairly quickly. There were four of us for lunch so we read down the tapas menu and just ordered things that we thought sounded tasty, checking with the waitress on how many items some... More
