    Wonderful Winery with Great Lunch Options
    Lynx Winery provides an excellent location for wine tasting and a nice selection for lunch options. We were able to sample a variety of their wines and enjoyed each one. We were also lucky enough to speak to one of the young winemakers Luke who provided great information about the winery and gave some suggestions for others in town to visit, all that were spot on. I would recommend adding Lynx to your list of wineries to visit In Franschhoek and staying for lunch. We enjoyed this winery much more than the larger commercial ones.

    Lynx is the place to go for an exceptional wine and accommodation experience
    We had a fantastic stay at Lynx. The newly built lodges are very stylishly furnished. We were welcomed with a bottle of excellent wine. We also had a tasting which was very informative and an outstanding culinary experience. The service was absolutely attentive. There was a shuttle service at our disposal. Highly recommended.

    Superb lunch venue.
    We called in for a late lunch on a Saturday without a reservation. Our hostess Victoria was so welcoming and knowledgeable on the Lynx wines. We had a delicious lunch under the large oak tree on an extremely hot day. In spite of the estate being rather busy with wine tasting guests from the Wine tram, we had a thoroughly enjoyable meal with marvelous service and with wonderful views of the vineyards and of the mountains.

We were looking for a nice location at a wine farm, and this fit the bill. Rooms were modern but setting had traditional feel. Staff was great, food good. Very convenient to Fraschhoek.

It’s unusual in South Africa to feel you have been disappointed in a winery visit, but having been to Lynx this morning it was very disappointing. Service was slow, waiter didn’t seem interested and the whites and rose wines we tasted weren’t cold enough, which we mentioned but was ignored. Off all the places we have been to over many years this would rate towards the bottom of the list.

Great views from tasting balcony. We were poured by a young girl who I felt was just going through motions. Of informing us what grapes used in each wine and nothing else in fact she did disappearing act?We had been recommended the estate Viognier but told we couldn’t taste. We felt disappointed until a more mature lady passed and she was a breath of fresh air and answered all our questions resulting in us buying a Viognier and Lynx Red. Well done her for saving our tasting
