We had this recommended as a lunch stop on a day of wine tasting, but unfortunately this place is so slow that it ruined our afternoon plans. 2.5 hours for a simple lung and the staff didn't seem to even care when we kept asking about how long it would be. Food was very good once we got it, and the view is beautiful.

We had a great evening at Roca recently. There are plenty of places to eat in Franschhoek, but we really enjoyed the casual atmosphere, friendly service, and great views from Roca. Nothing pretentious about this place!

Starting from our complimentary shuttle from our B&B to our drop off at the end of the night, the service was excellent.

The views can't be beat, and we enjoyed taking 2 chairs from the patio right in the middle of the vineyard to enjoy our drinks at sunset. Felt like we had the place to ourselves!

Food was reasonably priced and delicious. We had the snails to start (in a yummy thai curry sauce), followed by the poached pear/rocket/gorgonzola salad, and the lamb burger.

Spent a very enjoyable evening here just as the sun was going down. Great views. Service was very friendly rather than formal with young casually dressed staff. Could not fault the food - one of the best meals we had in SA this trip - and that is saying a lot! Pricy but not silly. Would thoroughly recommend.

Only went up there to see the view and a cup of tea. It was worth it because one can see the whole valley around Franschoek till far away.Generally the service in all restaurants and shops of this region is of a high level.

We were treated by our vineyard to this meal and they were very disappointed to find we were the second group in two weeks to make the same comment - great views but not great food

Nice people and the manageress tried very hard to keep us happy but there is not alot she can do if she has not got a chef who is up to the job that she deserves in such a great venue
