Having just arrived in Franschoek were hungry and Cafe des Arts looked inviting. It was a lucky find as the lamb chops were the best I have ever tasted. Definitely worth a visit.
I called in today to make a booking (which I did). After an hour, I wanted to make a slight change to the booking (move it on by 30 mins), only to find out that my booking does not actually exist!!!!!

We were recommended this place by our host Christopher at plumwood inn and went there expecting not much. We could not have been more wrong.

Food was very good. Nice relaxed setting. Pleasant atmosphere with a fireplace in winter. Local wines supported which was nice to see. Would definitely recommend the lambs liver and potatoe dish. It was yummy and perfect for a cold winters evening.

Cafe Des Arts lived up to its reputation. Warm welcome on a cold Cape day due to not only the log fire but also the friendly smiles. Attentive service and excellent and imaginative food, cooked to order. We'll definitely be back to test out their lunches and dinners
