My wife and I went to dinner here and were pleasantly surprised. We started off being the first guests which makes you worry. The service was good and the food was good well presented. The prices compared to some of the other Franschhoek establishments are still ok.

I went on a Sunday drive with my two little doggies, and ended up in Franschhoek. Lunchtime came and I had to search for a restaurant outside due to having the dogs with me, so I chose Picolos on the veranda and ordered tea while I chose my meal, then had their Angel fish with veggies which was really mouth...

We booked the restaurant for 4 of us and were welcomed by the new owner who took over the restaurant just a week before our dinner. He was a very entertaining guy and recommended various dishes to us, of which the sushi sharing platter was certainly a highlight. The sushi chef preps the food there and then and it tasted... More

We chose this place because of some simple chalkboards outside offering sushi........really doesn't do it justice! We had a selection of maki rolls and some sashimi and it was all totally delicious. If you're a sushi fan, definitely give this place a visit. If you've got people in your party not sushi lovers (missing out!) there were plenty of other... More

We visited this restaurant and found it had recently been taken over (3 days before) and have to say what a delight! We ordered steak (fillet) cooked to perfection! Beautiful local wine - from a vineyard down the road. The staff were friendly and we would go back. The chef was a pleasure to meet and clearly took pride in... More

We've eaten here twice in the last fortnight and will be going back. Good mix of South African food and sushi. The owner is enthusiastic and helpfully made us a Durban curry - not on the menu because some of us fancied a spicier curry than the Malay. Staff are friendly and efficient, give it a try.

We had the seafood platter on the first night with brilliant prawns, and we had to go back for the sushi the second night... It was absolutely the best sushi I had in a long time.. To the chef and staff thanks for the hospitality and excellent experience!
