We spent 5 nights in Franschhoek from 20th Feb after a gap of around 10 years. In all honesty much of the charm of the town seems to have been swallowed up by the numbers of tourists who are bussed in on a daily basis - and yes I recognise the irony of a tourist complaining about tourists.

That said we discovered a couple of miles out of town Bread And Wine. This is a lovely little oasis in the Moreton winery; the tables are set out in the shaded courtyard; the service is efficient but relaxed; the ladies (who forgive me I never got their names) who manage the restaurant are really lovely; but the highlight is the food. We have eaten in many Michelin starred restaurants around the world and the food here was on a par with many of them and in all honesty a whole lot better that some. So over 5 days we had lunch there 3 times and on every occasion it was brilliant. IMHO you will struggle to get better food in (and the reasonable price is an added bonus) Franschhoek which is high praise in an area which claims to be the foodie capital of the Cape.

Bread and Wine has much to offer the discerning diner. A charming spot under the trees and set in glorious gardens. Food and service are always of a high standard.

Wine tasting was good, though they don't have the Miss Molly wines in the tasting room, only in the restaurant. Restaurant (adjacent to tasting) is in stunning sheltered area, but still openair, and very comfortable, beautiful set up. Starter and main course each of us had were outstanding, as were the breads and wine and service. Tried the savoury cheesecake for dessert thinking it would be a clever twist on a cheese board, unfortunately it was terrible. However overall the meal and the restaurant are excellent.

We visited Bread and Wine as part of our tour through the Vineyard region of Cape Town. Fortunately there was a booking a few days before hand. This place is busy and only serves between 11:00 - 15:00 so do book in advance which is simple to do online. We went with our 4 year old daughter, and the place was very welcoming. The bread is brilliant, and we learnt from the owner that she does bread making courses, so suggest to check this out if you are in the area. Unfortunately we missed this by a morning. The food and wine is lovely and good value at their set menu for approx. 300 rand per person (adults).
