Where to start, simply excellent. My mother, wife and son stayed in the garden area and my friend and I did a wine tasting inside the tasting room. Chelsea served us at the bar area, explained the tasting options - we opted the red blend selection. Great selection of wines and very good value at r80. Will certainly be back when next in Franshhoek.

We chose their six round wine and cheese tasting. Four great combinations, one medium and best red wine was destroyed with unsuitable blue cheese. Luckily we saw the trap from a distance - and did not let cheese destroy good wine.
Our waiter was a nice and clever guy. Really pleasant conversation with him. Finally we wanted to test also their top wines - and one bottle traveled with us to North. One day it gives us big enjoyment and pleasant vibes and memories.
They have good variety of tastings and combination. Go and check your one!

My first visit to Franschhoek cellar and I doubt i will be back. The service was terrible. The place was not clean at all. The pairings were below average. The wine wasn’t great. Just a terrible experience overall.

We visited Franschoek Wine Cellar as part of the wine tram. That was our last stop on our wine tasting tour. We thought it would be a more opened place with view on the vineyard, but unfortunately it was a simple restaurant without any sight.
We tasted red wine with chocolate but we did not get any information about the chocolates - why it fits to the wine, etc. And the wine selection was strange, because we only got red wine which was produced last year.
It is a nice pace for a dinner, but not for wine tasting.

We stopped off at Franschhoek Cellar for a light meal and were very impressed with everything. Unfortunately it was Level 4 lockdown so no alcohol could be served. We received a friendly welcome and were shown to the open, sunny area. We felt safe as all COVID protocols were strictly followed and tables were well spaced. Our light meals proved to be very generous and delicious. If parents have young kids there is a very nice play area for the little ones too.

We visited The Cellar as part of our wine tram tour. We had heard great things about the food so avoided eating at other wineries to make the most of the food here. I ordered the seafood pasta and I can only describe it as seafood mush. The tagliatelle was so overcooked you couldn’t even see the difference between the pasta and the sauce. I honestly think I could have cooked it better myself. My fiancé had the buttermilk burger that he was really looking forward to and said it was average. Such a shame!

We had a lovely wine tasting at Franschhoek cellar! It was our first stop on our wine tasting weekend and definitely a very memorable one. We had the cheese and wine pairing, which was excellently presented by our lovely server Chelsea, she was very friendly and delivered amazing service. She made our experience! The wines were lovely, my personal favorite was the chardonnay.

The highlight of our half day trip. The tram ride is a must do if you are in the area, but Franschhoek really made it for us. Delicious wines and so well explained and presented by Mazion, so good we stayed longer than we intended. Thank you so much for one of the being one of the Highlights of our South African Trip.

Lunch time meal booked online as part of a day wine tasting. Five in are group and whilst we new time was tight, we only order light meals. The out of four arrived in three minutes, but the platter for two which was the simplest arrived after an hour after chasing twice. They had completely forgotten. Highly disappointed. There are plenty of other places to go that do understand what running a restaurant requires.
