Description: Franschhoek's iconic Haute Cabriere Restaurant 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. The menu revolves around classic technique with bold flavours with chefs Nic van Wyk and Westley Muller in the kitchen. The flavours and textures on the plate are specifically designed to complement the range of Haute Cabrière 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 Cabrière offers the true marriage of food and wine.

My hubby and I enjoyed a three course food pairing. It was a unique experience cause both the food and wine was perfect. We also had excellent service. The Pinot Noir was great!

We were a group of twelve, split into two tables in the wonderful underground restaurant. We overlooked the huge vats in the cellar below. The food was delightful, both in taste and presentation.Congratulations to the chef. However, here is the gripe. I am a wine lover, my partner not. He is a whisky drinker and very occasionally will sip a beer. When told there was no option other than wine, we were taken aback. We have never experienced this before in all our travels, including many winery visits. So, after one glass of champagne for me, I drank water as a protest. Very difficult I might add. By dessert, one of the staff offered my partner a soft drink. I think the attitude towards non wines drinkers is precious to say the least. It spoiled our evening.

Dear Maureen,

Thank you kindly for taking the time to review Haute Cabriere Restaurant. We appreciate your praise for the food, and we are deeply sorry that our limited offering of non-wine beverages left such a bad aftertaste. We completely understand your point of view and while we are a winery restaurant, with a focus to present our own wines and Cap Classiques, perfectly paired with our food, we will ensure that on your next visit, you won’t be disappointed. We hope to see you again in the near future!

Kind regards,

Christiane von Arnim
Managing Director

Chose the restaurant having drunk so much of their excellent wine. The food and wine of the tasting menu lived up to our expectations. An excellent young chef who will do well.

We absolutely love their wines. This was our first visit to their cellar. What a great experience. Lovely place. South Africa is such a beautiful country. This is definitely the best view in Franchhoek.
