We have been to this restaurant on several occasions and it never disappoints. The food is very well prepared, the wine is great and the staff is well trained and very friendly. You will not be disappointed.

I booked online for my mom's 60th birthday and let the restaurant know it was a celebration. We were absolutely spoiled with the staff going out of the way with little extras and even gifted my mom with a bottle of wine at the end of our lunch. The service was impeccable and the food delicious. My mom had such a lovely day.

We went to Glen Carlou on the Franschhoek Tram wine tasting. It felt like we were their first wine tasters ever. Waitress didn't really know where to seat us, restaurant out of bounds but tasters scattered around the restaurant area, no snack menu, staff very unwarm, including the manager. If they only want to be fine dining, then why accept wine tasters. Otherwise make both welcome in their own right.
Great pity as the wines and views are very good.

Dear Andrewbnbp,

I am very sorry you had an satisfactory experience, we will take it up with the team and learn from your feedback given. We aim to get it right every day and sometimes there is a slip - I am sorry that this was your experience. We will ensure all of the team are fully briefed as to which tables are available for our wine tasting guests, so future guests do not have the same. We do offer Cheese Platters for people looking for a snack and are looking to grow these options in the future. If you are ever back in the area, please let me know you can contact me at georgie at glencarlou dot co dot za. Kind regards Georgie

The facilities, art gallery and restaurant are magnificent. Our shoulder of lamb will easily rate as one of the finest meals we have ever enjoyed.
