I was taken here by some good friends who live in Franschhoek and the views at sunset were amazing and the food was good too- the chicken and prawn curry was good definitely worth a visit

It may be that we chose a bad evening to have dinner here but the accoustics outside were so bad the a rather noisy table of young who were over very refreshed and celebrating something could be heard shouting the whole evening even though they...More

We visited Roca at sunset and it was stunning! We had a glass of wine out on the terrace then dinner in the restaurant - we enjoyed our food as the sun set behind the mountains. The menu was excellent, and the food was delicious...More

We picked this spot for lunch along the wine tram and had a wonderful meal. I recommend booking in advance to get a table with fabulous views over the Franschhoek valley.

It just seems meant to be that the location of Roca on Dieu Donne is actually translated as Rock on God Given land. This becomes apparent on first observing the iconic views of the Franschoek Valley from the upper deck of the double volume Roca Restaurant. The visionary behind the Dieu Donne wine estate, Robert Maingard, has no doubt inculcated the dynamic restaurant proprietor, Craig Sherrell, to use the space in which the energy of sacred geometry has been introduced. A visit here can be lengthy as the beauty; the food, the wine and the service have an amazing effect. The upper indoor space, seating 120 covers has its special aura, complimented by the Seed and Flower of Life and the Cross of Loraine.
