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!

    Unfortunately, the food was very disappointing. We went to this restaurant 3 years ago and liked it a lot. The ambience is much nicer than it used to be, but we were let down by the food. We heard that they have a new chef - there's still room for improvement.

    Can you add a score of 10 please. Have been coming to your place for many years. Despite the change in ownership the place just maintains “something” which is just impossible to qualify or quantify. Food choice is excellent. Food quality is exceptional. Staff are exemplar. Can’t fault the place. We were there for my birthday celebrations last night. Just brilliant! Jim Roberts. E: jim.roberts@paarlprop.com

    We had excellent ostrich and springbok steaks with a lovely soft and fruity Haute Cabriere 2019 Pinot Noir
