Our favourite winery in Franschhoek. It's up on the hill so the views are stunning, and the staff are lovely and attentive.

Apart from the setting and amazing views at the restaurant, the food was exceptional. We ordered the Mozambican chicken, salmon and quinoa salad. All were exceptional. The waiter was full of fun and added to the overall experience. A must-visit for those in Franschoek looking for a great lunch.

Great place to relax, wine taste and nibble on some cheese whilst sitting in the sun over looking Frranschoek. There's a bigger Restaurant too if you need lunch.

Not so much known by the tourists but more by locals what organise their parties here. The personel is attentive and the food good, wine served as you may expect in Franschhoek. Not on the Main Street but not that far.

Took a drive to Franschoek to see the Motor Museum and got hungry! Had not made a reservation anywhere so tried Dieu Done - it was fabulous. Beautiful mountain views, excellent service, wine and food. Certainly will become a favourite.

Been to Dieu Donne a couple of times. Generally go to the ROCA restaurant. The food has been really good every time. Had the lamb shank the previous time and it was really good. Parents had the fillet and they said it was really well cooked and delicious. The pudding is also really nice. The wines of Dieu Donne are... More

Never tasted calamari so wonderful. For mains we... More

This winery has perhaps the best view in South Africa's wine country. It is simply breathtaking! My wife and I enjoyed a cheese board and wine tasting. Another positive is that you may tailor your tasting experience- you're not locked into tasting six or seven wines. The wine was excellent and we bought two bottles.

Fabulous views of the valley from this vineyard. We found the service average when we arrived but this may have just been due to the large number of people arriving at the same time. They offered a free glass of Chardonnay on arrival which was a nice touch. Worth a visit for the views alone.

We have just spent another wonderful evening watching the sun go down over the mountains, enjoying spectacular wine from the estate and the most amazing food. The staff were all so friendly and helped to enrich the experience. Craig was particularly helpful in making sure that we had a taxi for our return to the town. Cannot recommend this enough... More
