Here for a quick lunch and the menu looked very appealing. We sat down and ordered a platter of basically cold meats, cheese and bread. The platter arrived after more than 30 min and with only one meat and no olives. For Franschoek a very poor performance and very disappointing experience. All of the previous restaurants were outstanding. Being regular visitors to this lovely town this will definitely be on the "do not go there" list.

I took family members along to this divide hole in the wall eatery. The ingredients are fresh, tasty and an ideal place if you want trout or salmon.

We had to travel into Franschhoek from the Southern Cape and needed a breakfast. Are we glad we chose Salmon Bar! An Americano and a Cappuccino (both R16) arrived within minutes of being ordered, and then our Benedict Royale and Scrambled Egg and Salmon (both R75) were on the table within a reasonable time frame. Good flavours from dishes that were prepared well, and all of the above served in a very friendly fashion by Blessing, who was immaculately turned out.

Franschhoek is definitely upmarket, and the Salmon Bar effortlessly blends into that atmosphere. Well done!

This is such in gem in the heart of the village. Situated on the main street, it offers the freshest food you can dream of. We had the salmon platter consisting of salmon and salmon trout prepared in different ways. It is a huge serving so make sure you are hungry before you indulge. The fresh bread served with it compliments the fish. With a glass of light pink rose wine the meal was as close to perfect as you can get.
