“Tasty surprise”
Reviewed 4 July 2014

We had a delicious, simple lunch at Allora. The venue is beautiful and we weren't expecting much as we hadn't heard of it. But it really was worth the stop and the meal was deliciously prepared.

“Warm, receptive staff an excellent evening had by all!”
Reviewed 30 June 2014

We popped into Allora on a really freezing, winters night and were welcomed by a crackling open fire!
The wine list is extensive and impressive. Our waitress pleasant and easy to talk to. She recommended two amazing dishes which were 'spot on'!
This restaurant which recently relocated from the main road into Franschhoek, has settled down nicely in the village- it's central locate is perfect!
I highly recommend this Italian influenced, family run restaurant. Amazing authentic Italian food definitely worth a visit...

“Personal hospitality at it's best”
Reviewed 19 June 2014

Allora delivers personalised service, all warmly wrapped up in a good value great tasting meal. My meal is always served to perfection, and consistently good. It is rare to find such a degree of owner involvement in a restaurant, hence the great service levels. Our waitress Lemercia is in a class of her own, knowledgeable about the wine selection, and knows just the right degree of interaction with guests. Highly recommended.

“Great tapas”
Reviewed 11 June 2014

This is a good option if you have a heavy lunch or want a break from fine dining. The restaurant cleverly provides tapas and a complimentary shuttle to and from your hotel. We loved the ease, convenience and food was just right.

“Great lunch”
Reviewed 21 May 2014

We had an early Sunday lunch here. We were greeted at the door and found the management and staff to be friendly and attentive. The vegetarian choices are great with a better than average variety. The dishes are well priced and the food simply tasted great. The wine list has enough options to satisfy everyone. Additionally, the bathrooms are well kept and clean.
