Description: 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.

Make sure you book in advance because this place fills up and it's easy to see why.

Perfect view and make sure you ask to be taken up to the roof after lunch, amazing.

Lunch itself was great, the ostrich and springbok were perfectly cooked and we enjoyed every bite.

Cheers, ben and lara

I'm not only impresseed with the delicious food, but how Chef William suggested some amazing vegeterian dishes for my group of Clients who are mostly vegetarian and pescatarian.
On arrival I noticed an extra veg dish on the special board, so I see it as a thoughful surprise. Little did he know, that turned out to be one of their favourite dishes!
They enjoyed it so much that they'll definitely be coming back to eat at Rocas when they next visit the fairest cape of them all.
The views across the valley are second to none. Don't forget you camera.

I'll definatly be going back come rain or shine as indoors is just as beautiful.

We booked for dinner, but got there early to view the sunset. Such a festive atmosphere out on the lawns with a guy playing music!! Sunset was awesome. Food was brilliant. Our waitron was very attentive, with a good sense of humour.
All-in-all a wonderful experience! Will definitely go back!!

Wonderful setting with incredible views across the valley and vineyards. Great menu selection and most dishes are possible to make gluten free. Service was absolutely impeccable and the wine was exceptional value and really good.

One mark deducted because of the big cat lounging around - I really have an issue with cats around areas where there is food being served / eaten.
