Haute Cabriere is a unique gastronomic experience

Just outside Franschhoek is Haute Cabriere, one of our favourite french restaurants. This is a unique eating experience!

The whole restaurant is basically built into the mountain. When I'm sitting inside I feel what it must have felt like to eat inside an old castle made of stone. It's as if they took a stone and hollowed it out, put some nice tables and chairs inside as well as a grand wine cellar.

Dad's Review

On the other side of town, just as you enter the Franschhoek mountain pass, you will find this restaurant/wine estate, constructed as a wine cellar. The food is very good and every dish on the menu can be ordered either as a starter or a main course.

They are well known for their champagne, brandy and interesting blends produced on the estate. A very interesting blend is the Chardonay/Pinot Noir combination which is served cold and a favourite of ours.

In winter the fireplace together with the cellar construction creates a lovely ambiance.


Outside the restaurant is a wine estate as well as a helicopter pad . To get there you drive through Franschhoek and on your way out to the town Villiersdorp you'll find it on your left. You can't miss it.

We hope you enjoy this place as much as we do.
