We have just spent a most enjoyable evening at Cafe Bob-Bon where there was a fire burning and a pianist playing songs old and new. The food was well cooked and tasty and the lovely waitresses did an excellent job. All in all a delightful...More

Nice setting, the ambiguous comments on this site are most probably true. We got the wrong afternoon. Restaurant nice surrounding. Disappointing: no menu of the day. Main dish Sea Bass not well seasoned. And astonishing: quality of open wines is better even in Hussars Grill!...More

Enjoyed lunch under an umbrella on the verandah. Salad included colorful flowers. All the food was tasteful and the wine was good. Service was also good. Setting among the vineyards was delightful.

A quaint, rustic setting with a simple but excellent menu. The piano music, live, thru out the evening was a plus. We had various choices from beef, pork belly and sea bass. Every dish met or exceeded our expectation.

If I could I would give this 3.5 but I’ve gone for 3 because the service was not good. We were ignored for most of our visit. The food was fairly tasty though and there’s a nice feel to the restaurant. Not too expensive either.

Excellent food and wine, after a week in Franschhoek my wife said "probably the best starter and main that I have had. The cheeseboard was a poor climax but we will let that one go. The pianist is the stand out thing for this restaurant,...More

The restaurant (for dinner) was in a large 'barn' with roaring fire. There was also a pianist playing in the background. We had a lovely meal here, three courses and wine and the bill came to around £60 which we thought was excellent value. Very...More
