Popped in to have a dinner. The menu loks good but unfortunately food doesnt match the menu. The crispy pork belly was far from crispy and tiramasu was scary bad. Even simple tea wasnt good. First 1 star i have given and not cheap either.

I caught myself by chance in Franschhoek a few days ago and was fortunate enough to find this little gem again. Loved the variety on the menu (we were there over lunch time). The food was very well presented and good quality. Absolutely delicious and my partner recon the best pork belly he has ever had. The ambience at the restaurant give me a feel of a European street side cafe when you sit outside enjoying people-watching and a glass of wine. Inside you get a feel of cozy and warm. The service was better than any other place and was always a waiter or waitress around and can be seen. Loved this place and will defnitely be back to try some more from the menu.

Terrible experience. Disgraceful food at exorbitant prices. Yesterday my family and I went for lunch at Cafe Franschhoek with high expectations. We ordered 300g rump steak (R185 each) to be done rare, which came as: 150g, 1cm thin, well done pieces of rubber. And pork belly (R185) which was tough and extremely dry. As a side the veggies were grey, over cooked and looked like they were a few days old. Presentation was shocking.

It’s unfortunate that tourists are exposed to this and think that this our standard of culinary offer.

Stopped at this extremely quaint cafe for a quick lunch during our winery tour. Service was excellent. Greek salad was very good to start. We both got focaccia flatbreads. They were just ok. Toppings were good but the “flatbread” wasn’t great and wasn’t at all like focaccia.

We were three couples meeting for a farewell drink before some of the group departed back to UK after a holiday together. The staff were very friendly and the menu was extensive. Prices were reasonable. Because it is set on the main road through Franschhoek it was a little noisy, so perhaps not the place to visit if you want a quiet drink.
