Franschhoek Country restaurant
Fyndraai is an exciting restaurant with a local twist, on the Solms-Delta wine estate outside Franschhoek. The food, like its adventurous wines, lives up to the Solms-Delta claim of being proudly Hiervandaan (‘from this place’).You not only walk into history in the 325-year-old wine farm restaurant, you walk OVER it. The glass floor covers the archaeological substructure of a 1740 wine cellar.The innovative menu further combines historical ingredients with contemporary tastes. Seasonal menus with daily specials break away from the Franschhoek norm, with food that is “anything but french”. Instead, Fyndraai explores genuine Cape culinary traditions: European, Asian and African. This truly is ‘food of origin’. Enjoy your meal paired with the equally innovative Solms wines that range from the serious and highly rated through unusual to light-hearted quaffers. There’s something for all palates and pockets - by the bottle and the glass. And yes, there is a glossary translating the unfamiliar local names for foreign visitors.Picnic throughout the year in the farm’s enchanting riverside forest.
