The views as with many in the area are amazing although to appreciate them you need to go for lunch on a nice day and sit outside. From inside, at night, you can't really appreciate it. The food is quite good but over priced. We have had better food in the area at lower prices. The pianist is a novelty if you like that kind of thing, personally I found him a little loud, hindering conversation.

Although the service was fabulous and the pianist superb, the food was overpriced and disappointing. My wife is a light eater and we requested her to be charged for only two courses being starter and dessert. We both started with the asparagus. We were presented with 3 tiny spears split length ways in to 6 pieces with a nondescript sauce added, tasteless and minute. I had a main consisting of oxtail off the bone. The presentation was great but the meal was dry and confused, lacked any character or flavor. We both had creme brulee for dessert. This was presented as three small solidified pieces topped with strands of topping, small, tasteless and irrelevant. Our bill for this excluding wine and service was R480 which is exorbitant by local standards!!!

This is in a stunning spot, high above Franschhoek valley, with great views for pre-dinner drinks on the terrace, whilst you peruse the menu of delightful food on offer. Restaurant is elegant, rather than pretentious and the staff are friendly and helpful. Pianist adds atmosphere to the dining experience.

The main courses are very good - nicely presented and full of interesting flavours. I ate the fish which was brilliant. Main course menu may however be a little short for some tastes.

Highlight of the meal however were the deserts - 3 soufflés and one cannelloni stuffed with ice cream. Respectful silence persisted whilst we all enjoyed our yummy puddings! Mange Tout soufflé is always a highlight of our trips to Franschhoek

I can't imagine a visit to Franschhoek which does not include a meal at this excellent restaurant. Best of all, the hotel runs a complimentary taxi service to and from your accommodation, so no one has to drive!

Alfio at the piano saved the evening. The pickup service is cinvenient. The view over Franschhoek is stunning. The food was delicious. The wine was surprisingly priced at 3 times the price in their wine tasting outlet (The Country Kitchen). The service was awkwardly chilly though professional.

Alfio was the one person bringing life into the restaurant and thus saving the night.
