My friend and I were spoilt by amazing service by the best waiter (Michael). He looked after us so well, ensuring our glasses were constantly topped up and took the best pictures of us :) Looking forward to visiting your establishment again soon.

I have wanted to dine here for some time. The setting is picturesque and the view breathtaking. I was disappointed. The service was unbelievably slow. The food was overpriced and average at best. My daughter did not get what was ordered.

Awful from the first point of contact; they had the wrong time when they called to confirm the reservation despite us booking online; to when the manager's response to our complaints about the terrible food and abysmal service was to simply ignore us and not...even offer an apology. The cherry on top was how despite our table being the only one of the two that were occupied at the time and despite being very clearly and well- informed about one of our group having a severe shellfish allergy they almost served them the exact sauce containing shellfish that had prompted us informing them of her allergy. I could go on but really, save yourself some time and money - rather eat dirtMore

We celebrated the fiftieth birthday of a good frond of mine today at Roca. Five of us from klein ones ( children ) to us three adults. We go back way when. So when we arrived they had our table laid out, in the right...place and awaiting our attendance. Our food choices were divergent. Pasta to beef fillet, mushrooms to soup but all flowed superbly. Service was exemplary, cuisine in exceptional proportions. Well done Roca for allowing us to celebrate Gavin's fiftieth birthday in unique style while you sorted the flow of food, fun and fantasy......More

Stunning scenery and setting. Excellent service. However as all Franschhoek restaurants - overpriced and underdelivered with tiny portions.More

Quite disappointed. Number of items on the menu not available. Service was very average and left us waiting ages to order and receive drinks. Five of the members of our party had ordered the deboned chicken, which when arrived was not deboned and the fries...were completely stale (all 4 of them). Over priced and average quality for that premium price. On a separate note, the house wine is marked up 300% from the tasting room 30m away - I understand a mark up but quite ridiculous given the context. Raised everything with the manager and was blamed on only 2 chefs in the kitchen (I get it but then just explain to us the situation to manage out expectations). To be honest the manager handled well and provided an unnecessary discount which was very appreciated, but would definitely not recommend.More
