    We were 6 people last night at the restuarant. The food was OK, except the deserts which were just not good, the "wine pairing" was disappointing (we literally couldn't drink the deserts-paired wines ) and EXTREMELY over-priced . we paid R1000 per person, for 3 small courses and 2 glasses of wines. Never again
    My friend and I visited the Restaurant on the spur of the moment to ge feel of the Restaurant. The service was good and the waiter, friendly. However, the cheese board resembled a cheese tasting and there was nothing appetizing about the presentation or offering on the tiny wooden square. Definitely not value for money. Wouldn't be back!
    Food was good but the portion sizes are far too small for the price the restaurant is charging. Since December the portion sizes have halved. Won't be going back here. Restaurant is targeted at overseas tourists who don't mind ordering a few main meals. For South Africans very expensive and other than the ambiance no value for money. When we asked the manager he said this is restaurant policy. The portion size is ridiculous
    Beautiful restaurant love the interior and the setting at the back with the view on the newly organic gardens and the beautiful mountains. The food was of the highest quality from the home made bread to the desert accompanied by the fine wines of Boschendal. Friendly and attentive waitstaff. Highly recommended!!
    Gorgeous, innovative funky colonial environment with attentive and friendly local wait staff and perfect sibilant flavours in all the various courses combined to make a potentially difficult evening really lovely. I have enthused to so many people over this excellent new venue and I will certainly continue to do so. What a gem! As local living in Franschhoek, we are always on the lookout for a quality place that focuses on local, free range ingredients and has a passion for involving locals. The superior wooden dining tables carved in Pniel are luscious. All very well to visit Boschendal for a yummy picnic but this is in a league of magnificent deliciousness that you just have to savour.
