This was a very good restaurant. Wifi and A/C is a good start. You build your own pizza or sandwich or you can have other things on the a la carte menu. Nice setting with seating inside and outside. Friendly and efficient staff.

My husband and I had our destination wedding at Vrede en Lust on 14 December 2016. We booked the entire venue as well as surrounding accommodation at neighbouring estates for 3 nights and it was the best decision we could have EVER made! At Vrede en Lust, all the staff are incredible - the service was outstanding throughout our stay,...

of our three trips to franschoek over the last few years we took the purple route tram and this was the first stop and I have to say was the best tasting experience we have ever had. The staff were amazing and the wines were wonderful. Add that to the scenery and it's somewhere not to be missed.

What a absolutely surprise. The breakfast was good,the sourdough bread add the rest. After that we had the best wine tasting experience. The girls in red definitely know the wine, where it was cultivated. Please don't pass this winery it is fully operating on solar power. Whow! I love it, more words, you will think they are paying me😊

We recently stayed for a wedding. The attention to detail was great; the rooms were great, we loved the environment, the wines were great and service was great with friendly staff. The wedding arrangements went well and the food at the wedding breakfast was excellent. This would have been a 5* review, however, the breakfast, particularly the scrambled eggs (there...

We stayed here for a wedding. We had a fantastic time, the rooms are high quality, the area is fantastic and the wine as you would expect is just amazing. The breakfast however was a disaster. When you ask for a coffee or tea you may get it right away or they may forget, that's 50/50. When it arrives the...

The surrounding landscape is absolutely magnificent. It is our favourite wine estate in South Africa. The rooms are spacious and very clean (with a bottle of tasty wine in the fridge). Impressive estate with a good home bakery (with the most delicious bread in the world). All in all an amazing experience.

Luxurious self catering cottages had everything needed when traveling with 3 kids, one being a 5 month old baby. Really appreciated the laundry service for the kids clothing, really helpful. Excellent, efficient housekeeping. Breakfast at the "Lust Bistro" was a treat every morning. Centrally located when visiting other wine farms. Beautiful views of the vineyards and mountains. Will definitely return.

Stayed for 4 nights in Barbere cottage. Great for families with children. Excellent service from staff. Very nice breakfast and coffee at Lust bistro included to value of R140 that is more than enough. Perfect location for exploring the winelands. Best looking wine tasting room!

Stayed just one night for a wedding, but have to say the surrounding landscape is simply magnificent. Right there in the vineyard with the majestic mountain backdrop. The staff seemed efficient for the most part, although one in particular was quite disinterested that we were wishing to check in. In fact after waiting 45mins for her to return, we eventually...
