Following a long journey and some delays, Ryan's Kitchen were very accommodating in ensuring that we still got a meal. Very friendly and helpful staff meant that my wife and I quickly relaxed with a nice drink. Having opted for the "chef's selection" we were expecting the usual tasting menu, i.e. the same dishes each, however to our surprise we received different dishes, which was absolutely marvelous. A very pleasant surprise and a real treat. The food was wonderful and we ended up having a really marvelous first night in Franschhoek as a result

Maybe just an off night but not for me. Food was ok but seemed very confused? Staff seemed somewhat confused themselves.

The night started with a complementary pick up at our hotel. Fine welcome and service all through dinner. Great starters, the hake was awesome and tuna carpaccio exquisite. Great mix of African and Asian herbs and spices. Karoo lamb shank was melting in the mouth, cob fish could have had some more protagonism and rice was too salty, the only glitch really. Choco dessert taste could have been more intense (we love dark choc) and oil&vinegar on the buffalo youghury ice cream was a peculiar combination. All in all a great dinner. We would love to go back.

This restaurant was recommended by our travel agent and was well worth a visit. We chose the tasting menu with local wines and the flavours and presentation were amazing. It is relaxed and they were very happy to discuss the dishes and wines - the best place we ate on our holiday, Ryan is a very talented chef.
