“Welcome addition to Franschhoek”
Reviewed April 17, 2014 via mobile

We live slap bang between Stellenbosch, Paarl and Franschhoek and are blessed with numerous high end, fancy, expensive, fine dining restaurants. Our challenge is to find a normal, good, value for money restaurant where we can just pop in any night and have a good meal. Last night we decided to go to Allora and they moved into town into a beautiful, new space! Wonderful, warm welcome and options of sitting outside, downstairs or upstairs. I could see the artwork in the gallery opposite and we had a lovely evening. Chose from a selection of nibbles and they were so delicious, next time my whole meal is going to be nibbles. Little tasters for R20-R35 and yummy. A big menu for a big restaurant, but it still felt cozy. Bill for two beers, carafe of white wine, two nibbles and two mains were just over R400.00. I'll also go back for the avo and salmon stack and the panacotta. Think this may become a new favourite.

“Excellent”
Reviewed April 6, 2014

If you like Italian style food then this is the place. We went on a few occasions and tried different dishes, all excellent including a delightful Pizza. They also have a complimentary transport arrangement so you can enjoy the extensive wine menu.

“Surprisingly excellent”
Reviewed March 31, 2014 via mobile

We just wanted something simple to eat and ended up here. I'm so glad we did!
The food was excellent, beautifully presented,nvery tasty but also very inexpensive.
The restaurant is bigger than it looks from the outside but as it's on a couple of levels it does not seem huge when you are sitting down

You won't regret eating here

“Unexpected Surprise”
Reviewed March 26, 2014

None of our party was keen to eat here, but the kids were tired and so we sat down. So pleased we did. Really tasty well presented food. The fillet was the best I have ever had and the Calamari Salad - R55 Bargain was really good. We all enjoyed our meal and found the prices very reasonable.

“Very good”
Reviewed March 21, 2014

Delicious food and wine. We had veal pasta and T-bone steak, together with a nice bottle of wine. The staff was patient with us, despite having arrived a bit late for Franschhoek times.
