Very nice restaurant and well located in Franschoek. The wait staff was excellent. Our only wish was for a more interesting menu. The food was excellent but we wish the powers that be in the back of the house would take a few more chances with different and interesting choices. Overall, we were pleased.

This restaurant was booked for us by the manager of the hotel we were staying in whilst in franschoek for a night. It was last minute but they managed to accommodate us outside. It was honestly one of the best meals I've ever had and we have eaten out at some superb places. The presentation was stunning and the taste to die for. The waitress was very friendly and the overall ambience really lovely. Its not a cheap place to eat but once converted back to pounds its was less than our local Italian restaurant. Definitely worth trying

Went there for diner during our garden route trip. To keep it short: very good food and very nice service. The vitello tonnato was a bit too heavy for being a starter, but the crayfish was worldclass. Can only 100% recommend!

Beautifully cooked meal at this pleasant restaurant in the Winelands.

We had tempura prawns, fillet steak and a magnificent vanilla soufflé. The food and presentation could not be faulted, but the service and atmosphere although very professional lacked sparkle. Value for money and the exceptional quality of the whole experience made us very contented diners.

You can tell that the guys in the kitchen love their work. It shows in the taste and the food presentations. My only criticism is that they seemed a little short staffed on that evening.
