Really Disappointing Food
May 2021 • Couples
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!

Great Service, awesome wines.
Sep 2020 • Couples
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.

Amazing
Mar 2020
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.

Amazing food and super child friendly
Dec 2019
Many of the wine cellars in the Western Cape aren't really child friendly. Franschoek Cellars is very fortunate to have a gem of a child minder that looks after the kids in the play area so parents can relax over a good meal and glass of wine. They also serve a very good craft beer on tap.

Great play area for kids, food average
Jan 2020
If you are looking for a place your kids can play in a safe environment this is a win. The food is pub style and the quality is not great. We had the fish and the batter was still raw on the inside. The kids pizza was also average.

Great wine and perfect with kids
Dec 2019 • Family
Great choice for food wine when you have kids!

Thoroughly enjoyed our cheese board! My glass of pink sparkling wine was one of best I’ve tasted.

Lovely garden setting and main building pretty too.

Service was good too!

The soft play for kids is genius! We had a relaxed lunch and the kids wore themselves out and loved it !

Our favorite stop!
Dec 2019 • Couples
My husband and I stopped here during our wine tram excursion, and had the best service and tasting of our visit. We really enjoyed the “pinotage experience” as we had the opportunity to taste a number of pinotage wines. Our server was very knowledgeable, and poured us two other wines: The Last Elephant and MMM, which we also enjoyed.
