Description: Franschhoek's iconic Haute Cabriere Restaurant & Terrace is well known for its unique location, set into the side of Franschhoek Mountain and overlooking the Valley. Soaring arches and the view over the cathedral-like Pinot Noir Barrel Maturation Cellar below offer an experience which is not to be missed. On sunny days, guests can enjoy the beautiful vistas over Franschhoek from the terrace, while on cool days a roaring fire creates a cosy atmosphere. Haute Cabriere's menu revolves around seasonal availability of produce, which is mostly sourced locally or even grown organically on the farm. The flavours and textures on the plate are specifically designed to complement the range of Haute Cabriere wines and Pierre Jourdan Cap Classiques - all of them served by the glass and by the bottle at cellar door prices. Bringing all of these elements together, Haute Cabriere offers the complete marriage of food and wine.

WOW a beautiful stunning restaurant! Good service and just a stunning view of snow on the mountains! Food was more than brilliant!!! The pork belly and fillet were definitely a firm favourite! And that chocolate dessert - yummy! Definitely going back!

“Outstanding!”
Reviewed September 14, 2013

We enjoyed every moment of our dinner close to the fire place on a very cold night. Had complimentary welcome drinks, wonderful bread platter and the meals were outstanding. Service very good.

“Unusual building in beautiful location”
Reviewed September 6, 2013

We dined here in the evening, out of season, so there were not many table occupied. The restaurant obviously has a beautiful view, so lunch might be a better option. Service was friendly. Food was good.

Hi Judith P,

Thank you for posting this review and for visiting. Please do visit again when the sun is shining as there's nothing better than sipping on some MCC overlooking the Franschhoek Valley on a warm Summer's day. Look forward to seeing you again soon.

Kind regards,

“Try the chef's tasting option”
Reviewed September 5, 2013

We chose the Table d'Haute menu (named for the winery). The location is outstanding and we had the privilege of meeting Ryan Shell, the chef. We chose his tasting menu, which included some unusual takes on food. The de-constructed cream of onion soup was really enjoyable. The pairings worked well, although not all of the wines were to our taste.

Hi Andrew D,

Many thanks for visiting and your review. The Table d'Haute menu is one of our most popular menu choices and one Chef Ryan probably enjoys the most with the ever changing ingredients he chooses.

Thank you once again and look forward to seeing you again soon.

Kind regards,
The Haute Cabriere Management Team

“Remarkable”
Reviewed September 4, 2013

We were at the Mystery Weekend in Franschhoek and received a voucher for the restaurant of the vinyard : Haute Cabriere which is the home of Pierre Jourdan an famous wine maker.
The weather was very bad, heavy rains and cold but inside we were welcomed by a warm oen fireplace.
We had a remarkable 6 course meal with Pinot Noir wines. All the courses also has a relation to served wine. A really original idea.
Afterwards we also had a talk with the young chef.
We truly belief that he will bring this restaurant to a even higher level, being so original.

Hi marcwaet7
Thank you for fighting your way through the horid weather that day and we're so glad you enjoyed your time with us. I'll pass on your comments on to Chef Ryan who really does produce some amazing dishes. Hopefully on your next visit the weather will be better and you can sit outside admiring the Franschhoek Valley below.
