“Try the pinotage!”
Reviewed November 20, 2012

Enjoy a lazy lunch / afternoon with a great choice of food and the best possible wine to go with it.

I kept 2 bottles of Pinotage 2008 until this year from the last trip. But mind you: Take the first sip and you're done for. Addictive stuff :).

“A lovely spot”
Reviewed November 19, 2012

Bread and Wine feels like a deli with a restaurant attached. So the food has an emphasis on the fresh (charchuterie and cheese) and simple (pasta). It was all lovely and the ingredients were perfect.

Special mention must go to the wine choices - this was particularly good value with a R30 flight (3 small glasses) a great way to try Moreson's wines while eating (more of the vineyards should do this!). Additionally, they had a kids play area (a corner with games etc) - a great distraction and a plus for any exhausted parent.

In all honesty, I am not absolutely sure why 4* (and not 5) - but it was probably because we had slightly better food in slightly better surroundings, so had to differentiate. But we'd encourage you to visit - particularly if you want good food served unadulterated.

“Lovely little Deli”
Reviewed November 17, 2012

We didnt actually eat at the restaurant but visited the wine tasting room and stopped at the deli next to the restaurant. It had been recommended to us for great charcuterie and we were not disappointed. Great biltong! Also picked up some lovely foodie items like jams and nougat etc as thank you gifts for friends.

“Never disappointed”
Reviewed November 16, 2012

We have been to Bread and Wine many times in past visits to Franschhoek. We are never disappointed. Our most recent lunch consisted of the West Coast oysters with a Chenin sorbet and fennel, and the deconstructed beet salad with whipped chevre and lightly toasted watercress. We've both eaten oysters in many places and in many styles but this was delightful. The sorbet and fennel complemented the oysters beautifully; a real taste of the ocean with mineral highlights and a touch of sweet and herb. The salad was fantastic - the best beet salad I've had in a very long time. Had a wine flight too, which is a handy thing to do if you want to have a selection of Moreson wines. Hats off to B&W, as always a great lunch.

“So good we had to come back”
Reviewed November 9, 2012 via mobile

We had lunch here one day and the oysters were so good that we had to return the next day for more. The oysters were dressed with a delicious Chenin Blanc sorbet, green onions, and leeks - they were amazing!
The breads are delicious and the garden patio setting is a lovely touch.
