As always the quality of food is exceptional. We went early for breakfast but I do think that one should book if you are going later. The gardens and atmosphere is stunning, good place to take some good photographs.

A return destination! The food is always good and so is the service. Depending on the weather you can sit outside under the trees and if cool in one of two dining rooms. A lovely place.

This place embodies everything I love about Cape Town's wine areas. Really beautiful restaurant set in the grounds of a winery. The food was exceptional and of course the wine was too! It won't break the bank either. Highly recommend coming here.

Stunning views and great food. The sticky chicken salad is always a winner. Bookings essential in summertime.

Very pleasant ambiance, the menu was short and not all that interesting but the food when served was all excellent. Good wine list and efficient service. Pricing competitive for Franschhoek.

We got a tip from local pottery maker to have lunch at BonBon. The restaurant is located on a winery behind very intimidating gates on the road towards the mountains. It serves delicious dishes in a very friendly and beautiful atmosphere. Strongly recommended.
