Reuben's looked a lot more low key than the other restaurants we visited in Franschoek. We were seated in an area all on our own (even though other areas of the restaurant were busy) which meant there was a distinct lack of atmosphere and I also though the restaurant was cold.

However, this aside, the food was absolutely fantastic. We couldn't have asked for more from any of the courses we had - portion size was excellent and the flavours were just wonderful. Pricing was reasonable for what we had and I'd definitely recommend giving Reuben's a try.

We were in Franchoek on the coldest and wettest day of the winter. We were given a table next to an open fire, which created a cosy and homely atmosphere. Our waitress was attentive and helpful, and our lunch arrived in good time.
Our food was delicious, beautifully plated and presented with care. The wine list was comprehensive and well priced.
Well done Reuben's. You are a gem in this bustling and quirky little town.

We've always been Reubens supporters as my son is a big Reuben Riffel fan - and the resaturant seemed to remain true to its SA roots...not any more though....Visited on 29 August for dinner and found wine by the glass overpriced, main course average and the dessert (banana financier..) disappointing. Sadly you can no longer get what you pay for at Reubens :-(

Ever since my first visit to Franschooek Reuben's has been my favourite restaurant. The meals are exquisite and so is the service. The restarant premises is cozy and nice.
