Having made the journey up the mountain it was so well worth going before the sun set. The views are spectacular and we had a table right at the front of the dining area on the terrace. The food and service were excellent and enjoyed by us both once we had taken endless photo's. The atmosphere was very jolly and... More

Spent the day wine tasting on the tram with family in tow. Booked the Roca en route for lunch - hats of to the guys for accommodating us as we were a party of 15! Had the oysters to start and ostrich as a main. The best steak I've ever had was ostrich so the bar was set and communicated... More

Lovely setting with live music. Good place to arrive early (say 6.30pm) and watch the sun go down. The feta samosa starter was lovely- the pork/apple starter a little disappointing. The ostrich mains was fabulous -perfectly cooked, very tender and tasty, but the rib-eye steak was sadly NOT rib-eye...definitely sirloin and not as tasty as it should have been... never... More

We visited on the wine tram and decided to stay for lunch. Wine tasting was lovely, our favourite of the day and on a sweltering hot day the breeze and the view meant we didn't really want to leave

I done my research before leaving the Uk, as it was to be my husbands 60th birthday and i wanted something special. I booked when we reached Cape town, people said it was best to book as it is very popular, because of the views and the food, i was glad i did. When we arrived for lunch we were... More

I will never forget the experience of this restaurant! We booked early to be able to see the sunset and we were not disappointed.The views are just stunning.You just relax the minute you walk in there. A brilliant guitar player/singer played all evening a huge variety of 80's and some more modern songs to add to the atmosphere. When the... More

This winery restaurant is on a hill so looks down across the town back to the mountains so it has amazing sunset views. The food was very good but wasn't exceptional. The calamari starter was delicious.

Loved the food here, the Springbok steak was to die for! Great views from the outside seating area too. Of all the places around SA we ate, this had the best game meat (venison) by far!

Stayed three nights in Franschhoek, all restaurant recommended by locals: Roca, Petit Ferme, Ryans Kitchen. Roca has a great view. Wonderful for a dinner and watch the sunset. Food is just like petit ferme traditional (French) and not very creative.. However, there was live music which made it great and created a very romantic setting. Summary of a three day... More
