Based in the small village of Franschhoek in the Western Cape. Franschhoek is renowned world wide for Haut Cuisine and Fine Dining. Cafe des Arts is neither Haute Cuisine nor Fine Dining! Cafe des Arts is a simple, rustic, relaxed restaurant where all that matters is the food. There are no table cloths, no silver service and the food is from the pan to the plate. If youre lucky, you may even get some cutlery!

    The only complaint was one of my guests had the Babotie which she found rather dry.

    Wonderful Experience, thank you. Food, ambiance, and especially the excellent waiter (delightful man from Zimbabwe, unfortunately we don't recall his name, sorry about that) The waiter gave us excellent recommendations regarding your menu and he made the delicious meal especially good with his professional and lovely advice and conversation. Only reason that the toilets received a 4/5 was that we all did not like the communal hand towel. We understand the need to conserve water and the environmental impact of paper towels but if you could consider an air drier or recycled paper hand towels or another suitable solution, that would give you 100/100! Many thanks and we look forward to our next visit.

    We all absolutely loved the food served at this great family run restaurant. I had the springbok, which was delicious! I would not hesitate to recommend this establishment.

    The waitress wasn't really friendly and the only dish that was outstanding amongst the breakfast menue was the Trout, Caviar & Pached Eggs. The rest was rather mediocre.

    Food not well spiced. Over ambitious menu for the time of year with hardly any guests.
