Wonderful setting with incredible views across the valley and vineyards. Great menu selection and most dishes are possible to make gluten free. Service was absolutely impeccable and the wine was exceptional value and really good. One mark deducted because of the big cat lounging around - I really have an issue with cats around areas where there is food being... More

Touring the wine country, we were recommended Roca restaurant at Dieu Donne winery in Franceshoek. The restaurant sits high up in the hills with a breathtaking view of the valley and the modern design and beautiful decor added to our anticipation of the remarkable meal to come. We were not disappointed and I have to rave about the lamb dish,... More

Lunch outside on the Veranda overlooking the luscious valley; a wait staff that gleams in the sun with exuberance over our presence; yummy Sparkling Wines from their cellar; divine food with amazing presentation ... that was our 3 hours lunch at Roca! It doesn't get any better than this - go and take time to indulge. We were so relaxed... More

Magnificent view, perfect weather and impeccable food. The springbok I had was so tender it hardly required chewing and the collaboration of flavours was perfection. My husbands enjoyed his ribeye steak and exquisite blue cheese sauce just as much. Important to book to ensure you get a good table.

Our group of 9 had a fantastic meal at Roca! Not only was the food delicious and plentiful but the entire atmosphere was delightful. Coming before sunset on a beautiful evening we were able to enjoy eating outside and were delighted by the gorgeous views and a surprise musician that night which really made our experience all the better.

I have been here at least 5 times and I love the atmosphere during lunch. The restaurant is always full and the service is great. The food is really nice and you get a nice bottle of Dieu Donne wines for a good price. Book in advance.

This restaurant has breathtaking views and we had our anniversary with some friends. The food especially the steaks were soft and well prepared. The service was fabulous and we had the most amazing recommended wine. Highly recommend this place for weddings and other fanctions.

We stumbled across Roca on our mission to find a restaurant with a view. Roca is world class, the menu will delight your taste buds and you will find it hard to choose. Service is spot on and the Host was present but not invasive and ready to assist if need be. The view is spectacular and the red brick... More

We were travelling between Stellenbosch and Franschheok and had heard of the "La Roca" overlooking the Valley. So we decided to call and take a look around which had views that were out of this world! On looking at the menu. I asked had they any availability and were pleased when they had. We were brought to our table which... More

We went for dinner at Roca and everything was above any other experience we've had in Franschhoek. The waiters and managers make you feel so welcome and are very friendly and helpful. The food is enough to make anyone's mouth water by just looking at their dishes! We had the calamari and feta samoosa as starters that were very tasty... More
