We booked in UK about 6 weeks before travel and were shown to table right by the window to enjoy the evening light. We also had a front table downstairs for the cocktails.- NB Fynbos mojito is an acquired taste. The low sun floods through a pass into the valley, sunset was spectacular (see photos). We ate kingklip, cooked perfectly.... More

The food was excellent. The service was mediocre- attention to detail lacking. My dessert plate was dirty, wiped clean (marks clearly visible) with sticky residue, cutlery sticky as well. The music was pathetic - far too loud - FAR TOO LOUD - then the singer came on - well that was loud and really, really bad! The food is expensive... More

Dinner was excellent with a varied menu comprising many local delicacies - springbok, ostrich, pork belly. The view is amazing but would make an effort to get there for the sunset next time. Reasonable prices and excellent wait staff. Very enjoyable experience in a casual relaxed environment.

This is a lovely restaurant, and perfect for a late Sunday lunch. The restaurant has a gorgeous view out over the valley and its vineyards. Ask for a window seat! And the food was as good as the view. Really a wonderful way to spend a Sunday afternoon!

We arrived at 7pm, sat outside to watch the sun go down but from that point ok the service was very slow. But when we jollied them along our chicken was absolutely delicious - I would rarely have chicken on an evening out.

Had a wonderful lunch overlooking the vineyards. My boyfriend had the springbok which was delicious and even though I was vegan they managed to rustle up the most amazing mushroom pasta off menu and were so kind and accommodating. Plus gave excellent wine suggested. The view is breathtaking as well.

We were taken to this restaurant on a winelands tour and were seated with the other two people on our tour. We were given a menu offering more elaborate dishes than we required as we were not especially hungry. The waitress did explain to the other couple other options but not to us until I asked and even then when... More

we visited on the winetram redline tour, and found a great setting for wine tasting on the lawn overlooking the franchhoek valley. a sight not be missed or underestimated. The Roca restaurant is top notch with attentive service to match; bettered only by the idylllic setting overlooking the Franchhoek valley. The bill is a pleasant surprise given the quality, ambience... More

Get there early and sit downstairs outside and enjoy the view. Then move upstairs for dinner. The dinning room is fantastic and still offers great views. Food was excellent staff super efficient. Enjoy, it's one of the best restaurants in the area.
