“Lovely restaurant - Modern South African cuisine”

Fyndraai restaurant at Solms-Delta
Ranked #43 of 100 Restaurants in Franschhoek
More restaurant details
Restaurant details
Dining options: Breakfast, Reservations
Description: Fyndraai is an exciting restaurant with a local twist, on the Solms-Delta wine estate outside Franschhoek. The food, like its adventurous wines, lives up to the Solms-Delta claim of being proudly Hiervandaan (‘from this place’). You not only walk into history in the 325-year-old wine farm restaurant, you walk OVER it. The glass floor covers the archaeological substructure of a 1740 wine cellar.

Lovely restaurant with a very interesting menu. All of our courses were absolutely delicious. Had the scallops, camembert salad, blesbok, and steak. Nice balcony and lawn area when the sun is shining, and a fire for a rainy winter's day. Also good to pop into the museum and do the wine tasting.

I take Tours du Cap clients to Solms-Delta for wine tastings, a museum visit and lunch, regularly. All my clients have loved it every time, with no exception.

This is an unusual estate in the Cape winelands, in that the staff are shareholders - not only is this a fantastic initiative that allows them to reclaim ownership of land that was taken from their ancestors, but it ensures that they take pride in their work and give excellent friendly, hands-on service.

There are various options for lunch - a picnic, an a la carte menu, or the food and wine pairing. All food is exquisitely prepared by the passionate chef Shaun, and uses local ingredients including fynbos, the unique Cape kingdom flora. The results are excellent and allow you to taste the unusual combination of foods that makes up South African cuisine.

There's a large lawn for children to play on while you eat and the setting for the picnic is very lovely.

Next time you want a wine and food experience that combines quality with a down-to-earth setting - this is your best bet in Franschhoek.

We dropped in by chance and enjoyed a great afternoon in beautiful surroundings. The food overall was good apart from tough lamb which was sent back. The disappointment was handled very well though and the charges removed from the bill.
The atmosphere was good and there is lots of space for kids to run amuck.

Our experience at Fyndraai was incredibly disappointing. Service was shocking, with cutlery being delivered in a haphazard fashion during each course (diners had to use their forks to dish up from the pooitjie dishes). One of the main meals was delivered after everyone else had finished theirs. Another of the main meals was delivered without the vegetable portion present on other similar meals (the missing veg was supplied on a side-plate later on request). Excusable perhaps in a busy period, but the place was practically empty at the time. Perhaps the major issue to highlight would be a safety issue, around the corner from the eating area (next to the museum), out of sight of parents is a set of stairs leading up to an attic. The railings might suffice for an adult, but a wandering child under 6 would be provided scant protection from a 5m drop. The food ranged between excellent and ordinary. With so much else on offer in the area and surrounds, I would hesitate to go back.

I had the rib eye steak at Fyndraai, and it was one of the best meals I have ever had! The atmosphere and setting was good but the food was great! Value for money!
