“Nice Breakfast”
Reviewed 18 July 2014

Very tasty and well presented breakfast in a clean,uncluttered eatery.Sitting near the fireplace
on a cold winter-day is the stuff that pleasant memories are made of.
We also commented on the value for money at this bistro.
Will be back soon as the lunch menu looked very tempting.

“Vineyards picnic”
Reviewed 2 July 2014

Nice picnic on one of the old Franschhoek farms that produce some excellent wines. Big draw for us was the walled-in area with jungle gym for the kids. Picnic basket with cold meats, salads, cheeses and bread. Wines/drinks purchased separately. All good; would not mind returning.

“Kiddies pizza to remember”
Reviewed 22 June 2014 via mobile

The Kiddies 3 small pizzas were delicious not to mention the lamb shank special that fell off the bone and the trout that was cooked to perfection. That all makes the slow but friendly service to be a slight irritation.
The jungle gyms were a hit with my kids and made it easier for the adults to enjoy their meal.

“Bistro to Remember - for all the right reasons!”
Reviewed 5 May 2014 via mobile

A group of us arrived without a booking and were quickly accommodated at this intimate Bistro without any hesitation. A cosy Bistro with a family feel to it m, the service was excellent and the food wonderful. There was something for everybody (and we are a fussy bunch). The manager was welcoming and although he was very busy in the kitchen, took the time to chat to us, recommend places of interest locally and to make sure the service and food was to our liking. We had a wonderful meal, we felt relaxed and we were not rushed. We will certainly be back!
