Description: Based in the small village of Franschhoek in the Western Cape. Franschhoek is renowned world wide for Haut Cuisine and Fine Dining. Cafe des Arts is neither Haute Cuisine nor Fine Dining! Cafe des Arts is a simple, rustic, relaxed restaurant where all that matters is the food. There are no table cloths, no silver service and the food is from the pan to the plate. If you're lucky, you may even get some cutlery! -

Just off the main drag, so a quiet peaceful venue for a relaxed lunch. I had a beautiful bottle of Sauvignon Blanc, which suited the very warm lunchtime.

My wonderful holiday to Franschhoek is now over and I'm back to the old hum drum just wishing I were again sitting in the lovely courtyard at Cafe Des Arts having a glass of Holden Manz Chenin Blanc. It was a perfect place to stop on a beautiful day for a light lunch. As you walk through the entrance down the path you'll find a delightful yard filled with amazing art & serene seating. I had the steak salad with strawberries and blue cheese....light, fresh, delish ! My friend had the fish cakes and finished with salted caramel cheesecake. Can't wait to re-visit.

Tranquil garden with wonderful shade in the backyard of the main street. The food is good and the beers are cold. This is your place when you feel like a quiet peaceful lunch in a garden.

On a day tour of the wine country, we chose this place for its name and were very happy we did. The lunch was delicious and the service casual and pleasant. Highly recommend!
