About The Restaurant in the Vines

Lunch might be over when the distant orange-pink mountains change hue. But that doesn't mean you have to leave. Take a seat on a sunny wooden deck that reaches right into the vines of Rickety Bridge Wine Estate. Sip a glassful of crisp estate wine and redefine the concept of a picnic in the Summer. Every gourmet parcel unwraps new delights.

The Restaurant in the Vines offers a unique dining experience, sit on the deck or laze on the lawn in the heart of the vineyard and enjoy a Cape inspired gourmet picnic. In winter, the fare is hot and hearty - home-cooked soups, traditional curries and casseroles. Children also have a menu to keep them satisfied.

Every creation from the team of expert chefs is given extra zest by the striking splendour of the setting. Rickety Bridge is an enchanting Franschhoek wine estate that earns its place in the Cape's cuisine capital. Taste their celebrated wines on leather fireside couches. Stay over in one of the luxurious Manor House rooms, embraced in two centuries of history, and discover one certainty. During every moment spent on this side of the bridge, you won't want to be anywhere else in the world.

Need to know? Opening Times: Monday - Sunday 11:00 - 16:30.
