This place really blew us away! The food was delicious (understatement) and the ambience of the restaurant was amazing. They accommodated us along with our one year old son in the bar area. Made my birthday very special! Will definitely be back :)

Franschhoek is very quiet in the winter and Cafe Bonbon has a midweek film night serving a homely supper. The acoustics of the film were not great and the food is a homely supper. It should be supported for doing something a little different
