Take a seat overlooking the Rickety Bridge vineyards. Sip a glassful of crisp estate wine and enjoy a delicious lunch while drinking in the splendour of the magnificent surroundings. Every creation from our team of talented chefs is given extra zest by the striking beauty of the setting and stunning views of the Franschhoek mountains.

Rickety Bridge is an enchanting Franschhoek wine estate that earns its place in the Cape's cuisine capital. Franschhoek is home to some of the best restaurants in South Africa. The Restaurant in the Vines has made way for Paulina's, named in honour of the original owner of the property in 1797, Paulina de Villiers. The restaurant spills out from a cosy thatched area onto shaded decks with views over the vineyards and mountains.

    The food was absolutely foul. We had the triple tasting platter. It was vey small for the price, but the main problem was it was badly cooked and obviously nobody had tasted the dishes, they were not even seasoned. We got the distinct impression that because most of the guests were foreign tourists, nobody cares what slop they serve. Currently Pauline’s is my worst restaurant in South Africa.

    Had the 3 course taster menu which was nice and looked good but the dishes got cold quickly. I would prefer one after the other served separately, that would ensure that you are eating the food at its best.

    We had a fantastic lunch- poke bowl was delicious and the steak was the best we have had in a long time. Nama, our waitress, was very pleasant and attentive and the view is very pretty. Highly recommended
