    Heaven on earth in the valley
    This is undoubtedly the best place in Franschoek for wine tasting, cheese platters ooh and the trout platter is awesome friendly knowledgeable staff and a coffee shop and bakery. Restaurant is upmarket but we'll priced and always fully booked so book in advance. Views best in the valley. Don't miss out

    Wine tasting!
    We visited here on a wine tasting trip. Amazing elevated position, with incredible views across the valley. The wine tasting takes place in a cave at the back with no views & has a canteen like atmosphere. The Pinot noir pairings were interesting.

    Better than ever!
    Not having been here since 2017, we were amazed by the changes, not only the building but the whole experience! The staff were unbelievable. Very attentive and their knowledge of the wines and food was exceptional. We ate on the terrace which was new to us. It was lovely, however one slight criticism! It was an extremely hot day and the AC wasn’t very effective. We must praise Pauline, our hostess for our lunch. She is fabulous! Well done Pauline for putting up with us!!!

Our second visit to Haute Cabriere and had a very similar experience to last time.

The positives: Best view in the valley (stunning); the sparkling wines are excellent
The negatives: Disinterested staff delivering non-existent service

Overall, the positives far outweigh the negatives and make this a "must do" when in Franschhoek.

Great food but poor service
Our waiters were really poor. First of all, they forgot to place our order so we ended up waiting very long for our food (people who arrived after us received their food before we did).
They also had no idea how to serve white wine, had to ask twice for a bucket of ice to be brought
No apologies or acceptance of mistakes from the waiters and after we complained the waiters turned very sour which is very poor.
No one even came to apologise after for the poor service.
Won’t be back again.

An excellent tasting with very attentive and knowledgable staff. Based on the wine tasting we then booked lunch at the panoramic restaurant - incredible views, delicious wines, fabulous food. Pomisa who managed the restaurant was excellent in her role and all the staff were attentive and knowledgable.

I love this estate! Amazing wine and bubbles, ambiance, views, and the owners are very friendly and welcoming. I highly recommend doing the cellar tour plus tasting!

The hostess was one of the rudest people I have ever met. We made a reservation for 1pm, phoned two hours in advance to confirm and when we arrived she told us that because we had asked for an outside table and that they are all full our reservation had been cancelled.

She then proceeded to put us at a 6 seater table ( we are 12 people ) next to the toilets and ignored us. We had to leave to another wine farm as we all found uncomfortable.

We had a group of friends visiting from the uk who were shocked by this rudeness. We proceeded to have a lovely afternoon at Mont Rochelle which was significantly better.

In October, I needed to arrange a function at very short notice - it was a memorial and farewell event for my husband. Caleb and his team at Haute Cabriere were willing and able to assist me on a very busy weekend in Franschhoek and did so in a respectful and extremely caring manner. But more than that, the venue, The Cellar, the food, the wine and their willingness and ability to interact with outside service providers, was just incredible. Haute Cabriere was one of my husband’s favorite venues and ones and on all levels, exceeded expectations. A very sad event that was made memorable for the right reasons by this kind, compassionate and caring team headed by Caleb. Thank you.

From a base in the well-known Southwest of Western Australia, this ex-South African was escorting Aussie mates to wine estates around Franschhoek; having already visited Waterford, we thought nothing could top that but Tamo & his mother certainly set that record straight with their enthusiasm, knowledge & flexibility. Plus, the wines are excellent! Being one-eyed followers of Syrah, we were reluctantly persuaded to try their Pinot Noir & thoroughly enjoyed it; the pinot contributes to an awesome blend with Syrah. I heartily recommend Haute Cabriere as an essential part of any tour of the Huguenot valley. All the very best, Tamo!
