    Superb honeymoon lunch with a view!
    We visited Dieu Donne and had a fantastic lunch on our honeymoon. We could not fault the menu or the wine, and most importantly our server Sinazu was flawless throughout the whole meal. One of the best experiences across the 3 week trip and we could not recommend it enough.

    Amazing location
    We arrived here on a Tuesday. Sadly the staff told us the establishment is closed on a Tuesday. We asked if we could walk around to which they replied in the positive. The scenery was breathtaking. I’m not sure we will be in the area again but if we are we certainly will come here as long as it’s not a Tuesday:)

    Lovely all round experience.
    Top marks for the view, the wines, food and service. We tasted the 4 classic wines which were all very nice. I especially enjoyed the unoaked chardonnay. After the wine tasting we decided to have lunch. It was really lovely. The calamari was amazing, as was the prawn linguine. All very tasty and served by Sinovuyo who was very knowledgeable, gave good advice and was very personal. He made the eating experience even more enjoyable.

    Great experience
    We tried 4 wines, all of which were lovely. The guy that served us was very knowledgeable and gave us indepth information about each wine. We then went over to the Country Grand restaurant for lunch. The food, especially the fried prawns, was great, very well cooked and, again, the service was excellent. Our server was Sinovuyo, he was a lovely guy and nothing was too much trouble for him. Many thanks for a most enjoyable few hours.

    Excellent Wine
    Mussa, our Tuk Tuk driver recommended we visit Dieu Donne Vineyards and it did not disappoint. We tasted 5 wines from their Premium range and loved every varietal. Sabrina was pouring the wine, she was very friendly and knowledgeable. We live in California and go to Paso Robles and Napa often so tasting wine that we believed was comparable to a Napa wine was a wonderful surprise. We wanted to ship a case or 2 home but unfortunately the cost was prohibitive. I would highly recommend visiting this winery!

We went to Dieu Donne for the view and lunch. Unfortunately, it was a rainy day so no view -- hardly the winery's fault -- but the restaurant that is still listed with the Wine Tram was long closed, so we settled for their decent cheese board. The wines were good, too, especially the Shiraz and Cabernet Sauvignon, good enough that we bought a bottle to take away. The weird part was that they had a lovely, crackling fireplace -- perfect for a cold, rainy day -- but the staff was huddled by it with an open laptop, so even though the place was almost empty, guests like us could not enjoy it. Not a good look.

Wines are subjective. I didn’t enjoy them but the view and the service makes up for that I guess. Definitely worth a visit.

We visited this very good vineyard on the Pink route on Franschoek’s wine tram.
The views are fantastic & they have some decent wines to try too.

On the pink route this was our first stop. Amazing views, great wines and excellent service. Would recommend and return. Only downside, they should accept cash!

Absolutely amazing view from the Grand Restaurant. However the food was very average. Had a salad and a pizza. Salad tasteless and pizza was served flat bread style and the dough was terrible.Service was excellent.
