Tokara's deli has excellent food and is perfect for a light lunch if you are wine touring and don't want the typical South African full 3 course lunch that most restaurants serve.

My first time, will think about twice, as the restaurant is very pricey...
Wines are calculated times 3! Step for a wine area, learn from the Piemonte !
Small portions , all was perfect. Very friendly waitress. Nice views, hundred Chinese tourist photograph the sundowner....

We were taken here by friends and enjoyed a great lunch. The setting is special, the food better from a menu that has something for everyone and reflects its three word logo: Deli CAT Essen! And, great value!

Definitely worth a visit to eat but also to shop at the variety of wines, cheese, meats, etc.

Our tour guide brought us here for lunch on our tour of the vineyards near Cape Town. The restaurant is located in the mountains between Stellenbosch and Franschhoek.

It was intended to be a gourmet wine and food tour and so it was little wonder that he chose such as excellent location for lunch. The selections of food and wine were impressive.

He organised a table for us on the terrace with a pleasant view overlooking the valley and the vineyards back towards Stellenbosch. The perfect spot on a sunny day.

The building itself has a modern architecture that is complimented by modern artwork on the interior.

Well worth a visit.
