Description: Welcome to Franschhoek, one of the culinary hot spots on the African continent. Our estate restaurant - Franschhoek Kitchen, is rated one of the valley's leading restaurants. Franschhoek Kitchen's standards are based on the best international cuisine but our heart lies in the simplicity and pureness of each and every ingredient. High dining is for others, we prefer to see our guests enjoy a home-made dish, inspired by the country we live in and the farm we work on. Our vineyard is heavily influenced by the seasons, so are we, so is our food - nature at its best, brought onto your plate - either in the dining room, amidst the vines outdoors, or in form of a picnic along the Franschhoek river - always with a glass of award winning wine from our estate. Are you going to be taking a adventure on Franschhoek's super popular WINE TRAM? Make sure to stop at Holden Manz and enjoy a light meal downstairs to fill the gap or our delicious a la carte menu upstairs on the deck overlooking the majestic mountains of Franschhoek - a must do!

We spent a leasurely afternoon gazing over the vineyards and surrounding mountains whilst eating the tastiest food. The staff is friendly, helpful and efficient . A must whilst in Franschhoek and without a doubt a return destination.

Great food, excellent choice of wine, especially the big G, amazing view and a very charming professional hostess named Georgina, who is an incredable asset to Holden Manz.
Thanks for an unforgettable evening.
The establishment also provides a shuttle service.

We asked to be seated on the deck outside which gave us great views and also protected us from the wind. We enjoyed out meal and the service was friendly and prompt - we were served a whole selection of wines to try with our meal and enjoyed the "Big G" so much we promptly ordered some. You can also arrange a picnic in the grounds and to do wine tasting.

By Franschhoek standards this is not a great restaurant. The food was a disappointment with one dish having to be sent back as it did not bear any relation to what was described on the menu. The manager blamed the error on temporary serving staff which seemed storage as I would have thought the chef was at fault. Bit of a waste of an evening.
