This restaurant has a wonderful setting overlooking the vineyards The quality and presentation of the food was excellent The only disappointment is that it took two hours for two courses and found ourselves rushing to finish the mains as we had to catch the tram to another vineyard

I booked dinner for our second anniversary at Roca. We arrived and were taken to our outside table for sundowners and starters. We enjoyed the beautiful view over Franschhoek. Our waiter, Isabel, took care of us as if we were the only table she served and management also ensured we were happy. The food.... oh my gosh! The lambshank was... More

We have been to Roca several times and it's always such a wonderful evening. The setting is stunning - one of the best views in Franschhoek! We love the fact that you book a table inside (book early to get a window table) and the restaurant also reserves a table for you on the terrace - then depending on the... More

Wonderful food, our second visit and just as wonderful. Service was slow, waited an hour for food. Setting beautiful, overlooking the mountains, we sat outside, was a bit blustery, but they did offer that we move upstairs to eat and gave us some blankets. Throughly enjoyed the whole experience.

We watched the sun go down from what must be one of the most picturesque mountainside restaurant settings in Franschoek. Management offered a seat outside for patrons to watch the sunset followed by the opportunity to move inside after sunset, to a beautifully appointed table for the main meal. For me the main meal consisted of the beetroot risotto, which... More

Visited Roca for lunch. Excellent meal and good service in a stunning setting. Highly recommended. Only downside was the blistering heat even in the shade and the lack of any breeze which proved a little uncomfortable.

This is gem in the wine lands in my opinion. The views are to die for and the food is first class. Try the beetroot risotto and goats cheese. However, don't forget the wine, this is the wine lands after all
