We ate here and had a wonderful meal. We just got here in time before the kitchen closed (3PM). I would highly recommend this restaurant. I think it was one of the best we visited while in S Africa.

We visited 6 wineries on our tour and this was worst one. The wine tour we was one had a special deal that they did not honor, the only place that didn't. So we got one less glass than expected. The wines were good, but...More

We arrived at Chamonix with the idea of doing a tasting. The lady working there was terribly sour and could not be bothered with putting any effort into her job. We decided against the tasting and left. There is so much potential for this beautiful...More

We visited here from a fantastic experience at Eikehof, so perhaps had high expectations. The lady who managed the wine tastings was very polite but difficult to understand and seemed to have very little knowledge. The wine was good, but the whole experience was somewhat...More

During our 2-day Franschhoek visit we have participated in the main activity in Franschhoek which is 'tasting wines'. But of course we also went to the great restaurants to eat and drink more wine. After all that activity you need a good place to rest;...More

We thoroughly enjoyed our wine tasting at Chamonix. The Tasting Room is in the historic blacksmith shop, so very different to the majority of the other Tasting Rooms we visited. It was lovely sitting under the trees and as they were harvesting we were able...More

This is a very small place which offers limited wine tasting. I had the 'reserved' option which included 3 wines (2 chardonnay and 1 Pinkt noir) for R60, which were nice. Staff were friendly throughout. I would not recommend this venue for larger groups consisting...More

Our visit was quite a let down. The staff that assists with the wine tasting has a very basic knowledge of the wines & seem to be very bored with their jobs. They also can't cope with the volumes of people.

We visited as part of the wine tram tour. Nice location in a lovely rustic old blacksmiths building but sadly no access to the vineyards so not a lot to look at. The wines we tasted were nice though
