“A romantic restaurant.”
Reviewed 1 June 2012

Set on the hillside over looking Franschhoek. This was a memorable & romantic setting for me. The food is great, service is very good, but the view is to die for..

“The best meal we had in South Africa in 3 weeks!”
Reviewed 8 May 2012

Stunning location, idyllic setting at a table outside overlooking the valley.
Our service from "Mouton" our waiter was impeccable - warm, polite, but not stuffy. Just perfect!
We ate in some very serious fine-dining spots over 3 weeks, and this one took the top spot easily. Amazing value coming from the UK, exquisite dishes, beautiful presentation and can't say enough about it! Highly, highly recommended.

We actually visited Jan 2011.

“Always Amazing”
Reviewed 7 May 2012

We spent a lot of time here over our weekend away. We went to Mange Tout for dinner, my wife had a massage (which seh loved), we went wine tasting at the country kitchen. the Mont Rochelle wine is beautiful. I also watched a bit of rugby in their cozy and comfortable bar.

Excellent service all round

“Lovely Manor House”
Reviewed 7 April 2012

Beautifully located amid vineyards and mountains. Very good restaurant serviced by friendly and professional waiting staff. Simple but delicious options for lunch accompanied by interesting and reasonably priced wine list.

“Moderate picnic basket on fantastic location”
Reviewed 24 March 2012

+ location is really fantastic. Breathtaking view.
+ Kind staff
- food inside basket is not really exquisite compared to other picnics in this region we enjoyed.
- Rather expensive, especially because even the more expensive "gourmet basket" was hardly enough for 2 people.

This picnic was mainly nice because of the location, the food in quality and quantity was rather disapointing.
