Outstanding views.

Enjoyed the stop here. Wines are above average but the view is exceptional. For that reason alone you should stop here.

Had lunch at roca, I am so glad we did as the seating area outside is just fantastic with views to die for. The food was excellent especially the springbok and ostrich which was cooked to our requirements. The service was very good and we whiled away a few hours eating and drinking whilst in awe of the scenery. I'm... More

We visited the restaurant at Dieu Donne as a final night meal for our friends about to fly back to the UK. It was a great evening. The staff were exceptonally helpful and had time for our foibles : making a special diet meal and taking photos for us. The menu was great with a variety of favorites and some... More

What a breathtaking setting, nestled in the mountains. The wines were good but the staff lack any personality.

To sit at a table overlooking the Franschhoek valley from up high is one good reason to visit Roca. More importantly go for their food. We all opted for the specials of the day, three portions of Rib Eye Beef with Marrow Bone and Fish of the Day on a Fennel Risotto. Food was beautifully presented and tasty. Portions quite... More

My family and I visited the ROCA restaurant at Dieu Donné on Sunday 15 September 2016. The food was nothing short of amazing. As is tradition in my family; we all ordered different items on the menu and compared who had the best looking and best tasting meal. For starters I ordered the lemon and garlic snails with potato gnocchi,... More

Drove out to Franschhoek from Cape Town on a rainy, cold miserable Sunday having bought tickets for the wine tram/bus tour. Lunch was booked at Dieu Donne and I can say without hesitation that it was worth the effort. The restaurant was busy but the staff extremely attentive. Nothing was too much for them. Food and wine options were explained... More

Nice venue but wine tasting was not the best experience we had. Lovely restaurant and lovely venue. Prices are expensive.

We stopped here for the beautiful setting. We had a brief wine tasting. We went to Roco's restaurant - booking is a must. The food was fantastic. If you are thinking of just having a starter, those portions are small but the main portions are quite large. Food was really GOOD and the setting is amazing. I would highly recommend... More
