I love risotto of any kind and thought that eating a prawn and chorizo risotto would be delish. It was a bit stodgy to be honest, the rice a bit overcooked making the rest of it gluggy and the chorizo wasn't good quality at all. On a good note, the setting just as the sun disappears makes it a really nice place to just chill and enjoy a glass of wine, feel the last rays and just enjoy.

Many choices on that main road we ended up in the grill room... Good location and sitting arrangement... Had mussels and steak.... Very tender and cooked to perfection... A bit stingy on the bread but overall very good!

We had an enjoyable meal at this restaurant. Our steaks and accompanying side dishes were very good, Excellent range of starters and very comprehensive wine list. Service was friendly and attentive too. Overall, very good for a relaxed and laid back meal.

After eating in fine restaurants in and around Franschhoek we wanted just a good steak and a baked potato.
They did not have ribeye steaks, so we had a T-bone steak. Unfortunately rare was medium and medium was almost well done. The meat did taste good, was not tough but after experiencing the good food in Franschhoek we expected better.
I don't think I would go back for the steak BUT the starters were great. I had liver pate which was not only a large portion but also very, very good!
