A gem. My wife chose while driving by on a perfect windless Sunday. The service was prompt and good. The ambience typical Franschhoek Sunday bustle. Unobtrusive on the side, not over-crowded in the shade. We shared Cajun spiced fried squid - marvelous and perfectly prepared. My main was the unsmoked pork ribs - wow, a culinary delight. Partner had the prawn spring onion noodles and this was just as great. Worthwhile to keep space for dessert. Rum and raisin brulee was good but the deep fried milk tart was exceptional. The pricing for this standard of food is exceptional value for money. Jack Black beer refreshing and tasteful. We highly recommend.
Standing prominent on Main Street this is a gem of a restaurant. I have visited the Dutch East a number of times, ranging from intimate special occasions with my loved one to sitting at a table from breakfast on Bastille Day till late lunch soaking up the spectacular view and ambience that it provides. The menu caters for a variety of dishes accompanied by a wine list that will not disappoint. The food is made from high quality ingredients to ensure exceptional flavour and taste. The service is on par with the patron’s expectation for the profile of the restaurant. I highly recommend this restaurant to everyone that visits Franschoek for any occasion any time of day.
Happened to come upon this restaurant on 16 June. Had originally wanted to go to another restaurant (closed), but decided to give this a try. Best service I have ever experienced in the winelands - ever! When we ordered things, they arrived promptly. Our waitress and the matre'd checked on us, but were not over-bearing. Atmosphere was lovely and the restaurant warm and cosy. I had a tough time getting my head around the fusion menu, but the pork stirfry was absolutely delicious! Will be back!
Took my husband and son there on Fathers' Day and had the R150 special. The food and service were excellent! We all had three absolutely delicious courses and wine. Will definitely recommend it widely and hope to return to repeat the exercise very soon! Best meal we have had in a very long time. Impressive.
