Firm favourite of my father and uncle, we drive out to Franshoek to dine here ever time we visit Cape Town. Utterly delicious... the joke is that I don't usually like salmon but I will eat their salmon roses and their fish burger any day.

Every time we have come to franchoek we end up in this little restaurant for our brunch. Fish is always fresh and very tasty, prices are good and service is quick. Well worth a visit.
