Very nice restaurant with outside tables in the Courtyard. We initially booked to sit outside but it was windy so we asked to sit indoors,which wasn't a problem. The food was very good, vry reasonable but the service was abit rushed.

We ate here twice during our stay in Franschoek. There is plenty of choice and we enjoyed both meals, which included different pasta dishes and a very good pizza. Carnivores are also well taken care of. Happy to return.
