Possibly the best view in Franschoek overlooking the town and the valley but the food and wine is really why you should visit. I've been here before and its always been very good but my most recent visit last Sunday surpassed everything I've previously enjoyed....More

This was the only restaurant in South Africa that we didn't like. This may have been partly our own fault because we assumed 'line fish' would be a white fish rather than tuna which we didn't like. Never mind, you can't win 'em all.

we had supper in the wine cellar which is set into the rocks on the hillside above Franschhoek, it is a wonderful setting with great food service and wine

Such a beautiful location. The views from this wine farm and really amazing, which really makes the visit worthwhile. Then of course you get to take the most epic photos! Wine obviously was fabulous! Just be prepared for a busy place with loads of tourists!

Good food. Very good wine from their winery. Venue is unusual - no windows, it feels like the inside of a castle.

This is the alternative to the fine dining restaurant in the wine tasting room. while the food was good , it could hardly be called tapas as the portions were large and the plates were fixed, one could not select plates to suit ones appetite

Thoroughly enjoyed my meal. I had the shank and for dessert ended up having the Panacotta. Delicious food, great ambience

We'd heard great things about this restaurant, but it was mediocre at best. The staff was great, but the food was very so-so.

Hello, apologies for the huge delay! We have a menu for kids, we ask that they are well-behaved! Lunches are better suited, but we also cater in the evening food-wise.

Hello, We say as long as guests are comfortable, that is what counts. Lunch is very relaxed, dinner feel free to dress up a little- we say smart casual, but all we want is for guests to feel comfortable!

Description
Franschhoek's iconic Haute Cabriere Restaurant is well known for its unique location, set into the side of Franschhoek Mountain and overlooking the Valley. Soaring arches and the view over the cathedral-like Pinot Noir Barrel Maturation Cellar below offer an experience which is not to be missed. On sunny days, guests can enjoy the beautiful vistas over Franschhoek from the terrace, while on cool days a roaring fire creates a cosy atmosphere. The menu revolves around classic technique with bold flavours with chefs Nic van Wyk and Westley Muller in the kitchen. The restaurant offers an a la carte as well as 6 course tasting menu.
