“Good Value in a great setting”
Reviewed 11 August 2014

Spent a lazy lunchtime in this beautiful restaurant . Lunch menu was short but well though through, prices were surprisingly competitive for Franschhoek and excellent local wines were on offer by the glass. Service was discreet and quick , all in all a very pleasant experience.

“Deserves reputation”
Reviewed 7 August 2014

What a great place, roaring fire, great food, cute puppy and the maitre d' is a rooster named Hendrick. The food was very good, food you would expect from a top Franschoek restaurant. The service was excellent and the setting was beautiful.

“Great food, Poor service”
Reviewed 4 August 2014

I attended a wedding here. The food was absolutely amazing! We had several dishes and each of them was amazing!
The service that we received from the manager was very poor. It seamed like she did not wanted us there. The servicing of the food seamed disorganized, the music equipment that was supplied did not work. Just overall unaccommodating.
