We had another super lunch here with family who were here from Durban. The 3 course Tasting Menu is superb value with an option for wine pairing or you can have something lighter off the All Day Menu. Breakfast here is also great. We are...returning on Friday evening as we love the superb food and wine pairing rounded off with great service.More

Short and sweet. The energy, service, food, entertainment and absolute passion, baked into this restaurant is amazing. Best experience in Franschhoek , bar none. Forget everything else and settle in for bubbly and the chefs oysters, with an occasional tequila.

Over-looking the beautiful Dutch Reform Church on the main road with spectacular views of the mountains in the distance, the establishment is beautifully styled and welcoming. Can recommend highly as a restaurant and small lodge/hotel.

A wonderful balance between food, service and location. We sat outside in the courtyard to enjoy views of the mountains in distance. Highly recommended. The avo on toast was the best I have ever had.
