Rosie has a very particular set of needs. She needs to be fed. She needs to be warm, patient people. She needs to be entertained. This can be very difficult when we go out and, as parents know, if your kid is miserable, then you are inevitably going to be miserable. Therefore, finding that perfect spot can be harder than pretending to laugh at the jokes on The Big Bang Theory.
So when Rosie was invited to Franschhoek Cellars to spend the day there, we were very excited to see what was in store.
Franschhoek Cellars is located on the Franschhoek main road (you can’t miss it), and in 2014 was totally transformed into a sophisticated, yet fun, tasting venue housing several wine brands and offering various eating options.
There’s a lot of emphasis on serving and working for Franschhoek rather than being a glorified tourist destination – community life is very important to them and being a relevant presence means that just in our visit, we saw a lot of regular locals who couldn’t stop praising the place.
But did we enjoy it? I actually wanted to insert a sound byte, but a 50 second clip of me squealing is not appealing so instead, I’m going to convey my emotions in capital letters.
FRANSCHHOEK CELLARS IS A FANTASTIC EXPERIENCE FOR PARENTS WHO NEED TO FEEL NORMAL, AND WHO WANT A FABULOUS OUTING THAT EVERYONE WILL ENJOY.
But you want the details right? You want to know why I’ll be going back. Why I think this is Cape Town’s best restaurant for families.
