“Awesome!!!”
Reviewed November 28, 2013 via mobile

Had a wonderful evening. The staff and chef when out of their way to amend their dishes to cater for my husbands dairy allergy (even making him his own special sauce). On hearing it was my birthday the staff went out of their way to make my evening special and a night to be remembered. On top of all that, the food was superb. Will definitely be back!

“Superb meat”
Reviewed November 26, 2013

The resto has its own butchery and the T-bone (mid seize 650 gr) was just awesome, delicious! Staff and service were great. We went back the next day to have breakfast and enjoyed that as well. Very nice restaurant!

“Good food, great wine”
Reviewed November 23, 2013

This restaurant was recommended by our B&B owner and she was correct-the food is very good. The wine list is extensive and our friends enjoyed a bottle of The Chocolate Block, recommended by a fellow diner. The only problem is that it is a tad loud, but it was also very busy. The manager is very friendly and helpful. It has a nice patio out front.

“Good food”
Reviewed November 22, 2013 via mobile

This little restaurant in the Main Street in Franschhoek is lovely. Their Cornish lamb pie and mustard mash is delicious! However, service is slow and at times not attentive. However, a good experience.

“Amazing wedding gift!”
Reviewed November 19, 2013

Our friend treated us to a night out at Dutch East for our wedding and it was one of the best gifts we received. Pasch and his team do a superb job here serving up great food and wine in a relaxed environment with wonderful staff. Every bit of the meal from start to finish was really great- cant describe how great the steaks tasted. The Irish Coffee on the menu really put the cherry on top and it tasted wonderful too! Would go back there in a heartbeat! We really enjoyed our evening at Dutch East and would highly recommend it!
