“Great value”
Reviewed June 17, 2014

In short, this is one of the best meals that I have had in Cape Town - ever - and the service and setting were wonderful too. Excellent value for money and well worth the trip to Franschhoek.

“Relaxation and good food at it's best”
Reviewed June 14, 2014

3 and a half years ago, we were married on the grass area to the side of Cafe BonBon and held the reception in The Studio - a truly fabulous day organised to the enth degree by the manageress Marie-Louise, a genuine star! So, we take special opportunities to re-visit and Thursday last week was a cloudless, clear sky day in Franschhoek with temp early 20's - a perfect winter day that offered our "special opportunity"! Sitting on the open veranda overlooking the gardens, lake and close mountains, drinking top-notch local red wine - just basking in the relaxed atmosphere with usual discreet service in the background. My wife enjoyed the pork belly with carrots and wasabi mash and I consumed the lamb dish with superb accompaniments of delightfully prepared roasted olives with artichokes, rosemay jus and basil puree. The tastes, flavours and superb presentations were the symbols of a very well run kitchen. A beautiful wine estate, superb food and immaculate accommodation, long may it last!

“The Finest Breakfast in Franschoek...and the world.”
Reviewed June 8, 2014

Best breakfast I've ever had in many years of travel...eggs benedict royale is to die for. Stay in the finest B&B I've ever encountered, La Petit Dauphine, and enjoy this unbelievable breakfast as part of the deal...you'll wish you would never have to leave...!

“Wonderful 40th Anniversary lunch!”
Reviewed June 8, 2014

We celebrated our 40th wedding anniversary today at Cafe BonBon with special friends and family. What a wonderful experience! Delicious food, friendly service, great wines. Everyone enjoyed the laid-back atmosphere and the characterful setting. Lovely child-friendly venue. We will be back soon.

“Great wine tasting amazing setting!”
Reviewed May 19, 2014

Great setting, lunch on the terrace with lovely views in amazing surroundings. We had the platters to share along with a wine tasting which featured some of the best wines we had in our trip to this area. Very accommodating with our 2 year old child. If we visit again we would stay for a full lunch or return for a dinner.
