Despite turning up with no reservation, the staff were very helpful in finding us a table outside (us Scots are hardy types!). Views are stunning to go with great food. Well worth it!

Hello, apologies for the huge delay! We have a menu for kids, we ask that they are well-behaved! Lunches are better suited, but we also cater in the evening food-wise.

Hello, We say as long as guests are comfortable, that is what counts. Lunch is very relaxed, dinner feel free to dress up a little- we say smart casual, but all we want is for guests to feel comfortable!

Description
Franschhoek's iconic Haute Cabriere Restaurant & Terrace is well known for its unique location, set into the side of Franschhoek Mountain and overlooking the Valley. Soaring arches and the view over the cathedral-like Pinot Noir Barrel Maturation Cellar below offer an experience which is not to be missed. On sunny days, guests can enjoy the beautiful vistas over Franschhoek from the terrace, while on cool days a roaring fire creates a cosy atmosphere. Haute Cabriere's menu revolves around seasonal availability of produce, which is mostly sourced locally or even grown organically on the farm. The flavours and textures on the plate are specifically designed to complement the range of Haute Cabriere wines and Pierre Jourdan Cap Classiques - all of them served by the glass and by the bottle at cellar door prices. Bringing all of these elements together, Haute Cabriere offers the complete marriage of food and wine.
