Description: Welcome to Franschhoek, one of the culinary hot spots on the African continent. Our estate restaurant - Franschhoek Kitchen, is rated one of the valley's leading restaurants. Franschhoek Kitchen's standards are based on the best international cuisine but our heart lies in the simplicity and pureness of each and every ingredient. High dining is for others, we prefer to see our guests enjoy a home-made dish, inspired by the country we live in and the farm we work on. Our vineyard is heavily influenced by the seasons, so are we, so is our food - nature at its best, brought onto your plate - either in the dining room, amidst the vines outdoors, or in form of a picnic along the Franschhoek river - always with a glass of award winning wine from our estate. Are you going to be taking a adventure on Franschhoek's super popular WINE TRAM? Make sure to stop at Holden Manz and enjoy a light meal downstairs to fill the gap or our delicious a la carte menu upstairs on the deck overlooking the majestic mountains of Franschhoek - a must do!

What a fantastic meal, twice we have visited the restraurant and both times they have produced outstanding food, service, and fantastic ambience, even went out of their way and opened up for us on a normally closed evening, can't get much better committment than that. Well done guys you were briliant please keep this up, look forward to the next time.Regards Jon Kelsey and Party

Fantastic overall experience. Well serviced with a very inviting ambiance. Food was extremely tasteful, every bite triggered the right tastebuds. Food was carefully plated, perhaps a little light on serving (had salmon steak). The staff was very flexible to the needs of our 2.5 year old. This one definitely goes on my highly recommended list!

Firstly I have to comment on how amazing Cobi is - he goes above and beyond and is such a gem that just made the whole experience at Holden Manz perfect!! The food was oh so delicious, beautifully plated and every mouthful was a delightful adventure for the tastebuds. I will definitely be recommending the restaurant to everyone - you just cannot go wrong. The chefs really created magic on a plate! They came and spoke to us about the food, which was another added bonus - great guys!! The ambience at night was warm, inviting and beautiful. The staff were all extremely friendly and attentive. 10 out of 10 is just not good enough - the whole team deserve 100 out of 10!
