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.

    Food was a little bland and slightly disappointing. Staff could not have been nicer.

    Excellent winery restaurant in Franschhoek. I started with the baked camembert, rather unusually wrapped in vine leaves. But it worked - a sort of French/Greek combo. The chicken caesar salad was also very good and tasty and contained plenty of chicken. Finally, the cheesecake was delicious, and it came in such an enormous portion that I couldn't finish it! The staff are very friendly and efficient and one can sit outside (in the shade) with an idyllic view over the Franschhoek valley to the mountains. What is not to be loved!

    Anela was a brilliant waitress and her wine presentations were great. The food was fantastic and the setting was breathtaking. The wine topped off a perfect afternoon
