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.

We were recommended this restaurant by our accommodation and we were not disappointed. The location is stunning, high up on the hillside overlooking the winelands and mountains. We were lucky to arrive ready for the sun to go down and it wa so beautiful to watch this with a drink. The greeting by Rosco was very friendly and efficient. Our table was in the outside area downstairs which is covered by a canopy. The menu has a good choice of both fish and meat as well as a vegetarian option. Our table opted for springbok, ostrich and fish, all of us agreed our meals were excellent, the meat was tender and nice portion sizes. We had a lovely evening here and would recommend.

Beautiful sunset over the mountains in Franschoek. Food very well presented and tasteful. Must make reservations. Very popular. No play area for kids. But do serve a kiddy menu. Ideal restaurant for a special occasion. A must do when in Franschoek!!!

The starters we had were very good but the main courses very disappointing. Dry pan seared salmon, nothing special. And the curry was not very nice; chicken not tender, pappadum not crispy, no condiments. Just rice and curry that was it. Boring. Main courses too way too long to reach our table after we had finished our starters, nearly one hour! That is too much. Shall probably not return although service was very friendly.

My wife and I had a wonderful dinner at this restaurant. The sunset was magnificent and one that we will always remember. The food and service were also very good and we will certainly return on our next visit to SA.
