The Yellow-tail was grilled to perfection with fresh veges and crispy-edged potato wedges. A new manager has taken over and does his utmost to please. The atmosphere is relaxed and staff are friendly.

Sunday 21 May, we entered the new owned Piccolo Restaurant. My granddaughter Annastasia introduced herself to Andre. He immediately embraced her with the story of Princess Annastasia. Our Annastasia told Andre that she IS a princess. Our time spent at Piccolo was that of Royalty. Andre ensured that his princess sat where she wanted too, arranged the best chair, fantastic... More

We had dinner on a Saturday night, and one can see winter has come as the town was very quiet. My partner had the chicken curry which he enjoyed and I had sushi. My sushi was good, I think the salmon Roses just need a bit of tweaking so that it is more "together" and not falling apart. The manager... More

My wife and I went to dinner here and were pleasantly surprised. We started off being the first guests which makes you worry. The service was good and the food was good well presented. The prices compared to some of the other Franschhoek establishments are still ok.

I went on a Sunday drive with my two little doggies, and ended up in Franschhoek. Lunchtime came and I had to search for a restaurant outside due to having the dogs with me, so I chose Picolos on the veranda and ordered tea while I chose my meal, then had their Angel fish with veggies which was really mouth...

We booked the restaurant for 4 of us and were welcomed by the new owner who took over the restaurant just a week before our dinner. He was a very entertaining guy and recommended various dishes to us, of which the sushi sharing platter was certainly a highlight. The sushi chef preps the food there and then and it tasted... More

We chose this place because of some simple chalkboards outside offering sushi........really doesn't do it justice! We had a selection of maki rolls and some sashimi and it was all totally delicious. If you're a sushi fan, definitely give this place a visit. If you've got people in your party not sushi lovers (missing out!) there were plenty of other... More
