“Delicious meal in magnificent setting”
Reviewed 4 May 2014

We drove here from Robertson-a short drive through beautiful scenery.The setting of this restaurant is quite magnificent-overlooking the vineyards and mountains. Great service and really delicious food made with fresh ingredients -the beetroot cappachio was out of this world.Pricey but worth every cent.

“A Shining Jewel!”
Reviewed 17 April 2014

We were unprepared to discover this shining jewel of a restaurant outside of Robertson. The service was highly attentive and the setting is gorgeous with wonderful views from the outdoor patio. The food was sublime. Our party of six were each impressed with our meals. Lamb, Moroccan style chicken and game entrees with subtle flavors all cooked to perfection. Carpaccio and the most brilliant tomato soup we have ever tasted were among the stunning first courses. It is worth a drive from Cape Town and worthy of a detour on the Robertson wine route. A world class restaurant highly recommended.

“Excellent food in a beautiful setting”
Reviewed 13 April 2014

I went here for dinner many years ago but Fraai Uitzicht has new owners sine then and is much improved.
We went for lunch as a group of 4, it was a very relaxed affair with impeccable service. They had some lighter lunch options, as well as their menu.
I had the Moroccan inspired chicken dish, it was delicious. Others had salads from the lunch specials. They weren't just your everyday salads!
You could quite easily spend a few hours having a relaxing meal on the terrace, enjoying the view and relaxing.
The wine list is local and reasonably priced
Others have said it is expensive, but coming from the UK, it was good value

“very friendly, good food and good wine”
Reviewed 27 February 2014

We didn't stay in Fraai Uitzicht but in a guesthouse nearby We have been at Fraai Uitzicht several times over the years and as we like to eat everynight somewhere else we booked Fraai Uitzicht. It was very busy, all table s on the terrace where occupied. Food is good, no fancy things but just good food. Nice winelist, very friendly staff. As allways we enjoyed it.

“The best 3 course meal I have ever had”
Reviewed 12 January 2014

This restaurant is in the most beautiful location with sweeping views of Robertson. This is fine dining but the atmosphere is down to earth and friendly with zero pretentiousness and fuss. And there is the food....3 courses of the most delicious food, leaving each plate spotless without feeling hungry nor over full. It was just perfect.
