We popped in for a late light lunch and were so impressed by the staff willing to accommodate us with our special requests. Beautiful restaurant with a lovely ambiance. We had a couple of starters and every single one was fantastic.

Had a really nice meal, great food with attentive staff. Loved the decor and very centrally located behind the tram ticket office. Caters for children and reasonably priced. Gluten free pizza and pasta too!

We ate here twice during a recent trip to Franschhoek. Allora had been recommended to us, and we weren't disappointed. On both occasions, the food served up was well presented and beautifully cooked. The steak was one of the best we had ever tasted, and...More

Never been to Allora before but it was recommended and came up to expectations. Wide ranging menu with decent wines. Not expensive. Nice staff and very attentive. Worth a visit but book ahead of time as very popular.

The second best florentine steak I have eaten, the other one, of course in Florence! Service was friendly and courteous. Very friendly and helpful manager.

Allora is one of the more upscale in-town restaurants -- white table cloths and more formal service. Attractive new facilities. Excellent menu and wine list selections. Can get busy quickly, thus good to have a reservation. Outside dining if weather permits.

Our personal favorite. Went in without a reservation and the place was buzzing as usual. They made a plan and we were seated within 5 minutes. My pasta was delicious and so was my husbands veal masala (his favorite). Always a manager visible, service always...More

Big menu, steaks were absolutely divine. I ordered the 200g fillet and got the mushroom sauce on the side - absolute heaven. Did not have starters or desserts as we had just finished the wine tram and were ready to KO, but lovely ambiance in...More
