We love this restaurant. So convenient and close to where we live. I love the Veal Limone and croquettes. Pizza is also really good. Sometimes the service is not so great. Difficult to get a bill to pay at the end of a meal. Feel that sometimes the staff need a little supervision

Staying in Franschhoek for a month gives us the time to sample many restaurants in the area. We love Italian food so decided to give Pappa Grappa a go. We started with the Calamari, which was swimming in sauce, which we shared. Tasted ok, but very different.
Irene had the seafood spaghetti. mainly pasta with some prawns and tiny mussels and I had the Wiener Schnitzel. The veal was rather tough and the salad was smothered in a very thick dressing, which made it virtually inedible. We sampled a small gin and had two large beers. The total came to 406 rand, ok but nothing special.

We always have great experiences at this owner managed restaurant. Nothing is ever too much trouble, no request too big or too small. Friendly, attentive staff, great atmosphere and beautiful surroundings. There is a fabulous kids play area. The food is always fresh using top quality ingredients. Very high standards are maintained at all times. Simplyt the best pizzas in South Africa!

We arrived here in the middle of a power cut - and the electricity stayed off till after we left. This meant that some dishes were not available, which disappointed my 7 year-old (no chips). Our toddler was ravenous and they rustled up some mashed potato for her - which they did not charge for. We really enjoyed our main courses and finished with the week's dessert special - yummy cheesecake. The staff were very helpful and coped admirably with the power-cut. The children's play area helped to keep the children occupied.

Lovely spot with attractive gardens and great handcrafted gin. Good service. Sadly food let this place down badly and whilst we've been regular guests over many years, this was not a successful trip.
