Lovely venue. That's it. Food was good too but the pork belly we ordered was served cold. The veggies were perfect and piping hot. The problem with this potentially great place is poor management and flies . Sooooo many flies! On arrival, no welcome and no intro from the manager . Was there a manager. No! Waited ages to be...

This was the most interesting place we encountered in our tour of wineries, and certainly one of the best meals I'd had in a very long time. I had the pork belly, which was beautifully presented and with a delicious array of local veggies!

Miss the old restaurant which had a fabulous and relaxing ambiance and offered hearty satisfying meals. We found the atmosphere around the new restaurant cold and totally lacking in the friendly attention we experienced at the old restaurant. Too much concentration on decorating your plate resulting in an inadequate and disappointing meal - fish was tasteless!

We had a lovely lunch with very attentive staff who moved us indoors because of unruly children at the adjoining table.

Decided to have a late lunch after visiting the excellent museum in this property. We sat outside under the shade of a tree and shared two starters, a cheese plate and two deserts. Everything was extremely tasty and accompanied by excellent wine. We loved the Malvasia pudding and caramel banana roll. Perfect lunch and very reasonable price. Thoroughly recommend.

On arrival we were a bit unsure with little tables occupied, not set and no umbrellas open! Menu was short but well described and we considered leaving but decided to stay. Food was good but the restaurant lacked management and atmosphere! It needs some passion and care! Overall we enjoyed our lunch and the wine was great but I would... More

My holidaying/honeymooning friends with their young kids here from London carefully chose a picnic venue according to reviews on TripAdvisor. The picnic spread was OK but really not comparable to many others we've been to in the past. Most bizarrely, a bottle of desert wine was given with the picnic. I couldn't describe the area as beautiful. The stream was... More

We stopped for a lunch and were surprised. Seeing the small museum of African music we did not expect a lot but... the delicate food based on local origin ingredients was amazing. We had one starter and two smaller mains, just perfect for a lunch. Combined with the wine of the estate, the great views of the valley toward Franshoek...... More

Description
Fyndraai is an exciting restaurant with a local twist, on the Solms-Delta wine estate outside Franschhoek. The food, like its adventurous wines, lives up to the Solms-Delta claim of being proudly Hiervandaan (‘from this place’).
You not only walk into history in the 325-year-old wine farm restaurant, you walk OVER it. The glass floor covers the archaeological substructure of a 1740 wine cellar.
