Without doubt, the best pizza I have ever eaten! While the restaurant was pretty empty - being midweek during Covid, the staff could not have been friendly or the food better. And the selection of desserts was just unfair on the waistline! This is one...to be enjoyed.More

Suppose if you like this type of restaurant,then you might enjoy. Food is good but not fabulous,very much canteen like. We will try again in the future. Lots of way better places in the area.

Beautiful architecture and setting from the outside. Just a dining hall.Terrible design and acoustics inside. No atmosphere, noisy, reminded me of an airport. Too many people in closed up area. Couldn't wait to get it over and done with.Very busy, restless and the food was...ok, but the chicken is topped with a curry sauce, that was an unexpected unpleasant surprise. Wine is dirt cheap. Salads ok, fresh but not mindblowing- not worth R195 pp. Pizza was the better option.More

This spacious airy restaurant with it's fantastic views over the valley and mountains is a real relaxing tonic. Service was prompt and we did not feel inhibited by Lockdown restrictions. The menu offers 4 or 5 options for lunch but the variety in the salads...and ingenuity plus quality presentation make it a must visit place again! Portions were just right and the food cooked to perfection. Then the wine was well priced and matched the food nicely. While prices are a bit up in the mid-range, the quality is almost like fine dining.More

We started off with the wine tasting and then ate in their restaurant. Unique that you select your salads / potatoes etc, which are then priced by weight and you then add your meat / fish choice. The food was very tasty and a lively...atmosphere in the restaurant, with quite a few families enjoying the location. All reasonably priced and most enjoyable.More

Did the pink line on the wine tram and ended at Leopard's Leap around lunch - really enjoyed awesome food and wine! Highly recommend the rotisserie - the lamb neck was out of this world. Will definitely take a drive to Franschhoek again just for...this experience.More

Just called in off the wine tram to enjoy a glass of sparkling rose. An excellent way to start the day. We didn't but the food on display for lunch looked great.

As ever, this modern, light, airy and spacious venue remains a favorite for the expertly cooked roasts and amazing wide variety of salads and vegetables. All billed by weight, so you get to choose exactly how much to gorge on! The service is unassuming, friendly...and efficient, whilst the estate’s wines extremely good value for money. What more could one ask of a lunch time feast?More

A fantastic buffet in a lovely setting. You choose whatever salads you want from the buffet and pay per weight. R270 per kilo. The salads are amazing - plenty to choose from. Then you choose which meat you want: chicken, pork, lamb or beef (this...is extra) or just stick to the salad. The only disappointing thing was that the chicken was a pie unlike the last time we were here when they had roast chicken but still very tasty. My husband had the lamb and he said that was very nice. We will return ;-)More

Staying in Franschhoek so decided to go here as it was close by and the website looked good. Arrived at the Vineyard and entered what could only be described as a canteen for lunch. When I asked for Chicken from the Rotisserie I was told...there was only Chicken Pie (It's meant to be a Rotisserie), Lamb Neck and Pork Belly. When I asked for a side of French Fries i was told they didn't serve them. When i asked for Bread i was told they didn't have any! We left without eating or Wine tasting. A complete waste of a return taxi journey. Went back to town for Lunch and then on to Glenwood in the afternoon and had a great time. Personally I would avoid this place.More
