  • Make sure to check which tram line each restaurant in Franschhoek is associated with if travelling by tram and the length of the stop of each line.
  • Visit the website of the Franschhoek restaurant. Every restaurant is individually listed below with a link to their website, where you will find the restaurant’s menu.
  • Look for reviews that specifically describe food quality, service, menu offerings or restaurant character. You want a restaurant with good food and a good experience.
  • Identify and ignore poor and unhelpful reviews and ratings. Sift through the reviews from really picky people with over-the-top-expectations.  For example, someone who gives it a 1 star and comments, “They couldn’t seat my party of 12 at 6:30pm on a Friday night!
  • Visit the restaurant’s presence on social media. Some restaurants create a website and never look at it again, so it remains sort of static. Look at the restaurant’s social media presence to see if there are latest pictures of the restaurant and food.
  • Ask locals. Based on what you want to eat and what experience you are looking for, ask them which Franschhoek restaurant they would choose.
  • If you have small children, it is always wise to find out if the restaurant caters for children or has a children’s menu.
