We visited Racine for lunch last year and this year we went for dinner with friends. We had a lovely meal and the restaurant was extremely busy, Service was excellent.

Always busy at this time of the year in Fransschoek. So we had booked a table. Lots of very arrogant people wanting tables with no bookings (all tables were booked) were dealt with exceptionally well by the staff. Out of 4 starters only one disappointed,...More

First time here. Some of our family was on the wine tram with only 2 hours to eat. Party of 17. Order mostly hamburgers. Took 1 hour 20 minutes to get food. When raised with waiter she was very cocky. WILL NEVER COME BACK EVER....More
