The evening we went to the restaurant it was cold outside and the 'extension' area where we sat was drafty to say the least. A back door was left open and I did not enjoy the evening at all. We did ask to be moved, but the restaurant was full so had to endure the drafty area where we sat!

We visited this restaurant for lunch as a group of 8 people. We had a table out in the courtyard, where the service was excellent, the food was tasty and good value for money. Will definitely come back here for relaxed weekend lunches with the family.

Not quite full season yet and the place was full. We came here after refusing to eat in another local restaurant where we had a reservation but didn't like the menu, and we were lucky to get the last table...so make reservations.

It was a chilly evening and they had a fire going in a fireplace in the center of the restaurant making the place very cozy.

We ordered the mussels and minestrone as appetizers. Superb. The main dishes of veal marsala and whole fish were very good, but not quite as great as the appetizers. And we ordered fresh fruit salad for dessert, which wasn't on the menu but was accomodated. Impressive, and they did it well. We always appreciate when special orders are accepted with a smile!

The manager checked on us a couple of times to be sure we were comfortable and satisfied. And, while we didn't use it, we noticed that they offer a shuttle service for customers needing transportation.

Strongly recommended.

We were pleasantly surprised by Allora - thought it might be a bit chain-like but the food was excellent and the wine list, perhaps unsurprisingly for Franschhoek, both exhaustive and reasonably priced. Good seafood, unobtrusive and friendly service and a free shuttle there and back: the chef took us there, the owner drove us back!
