Backsberg Restaurant – Franschhoek Restaurant

Backsberg Restaurant

The Backsberg Restaurant is situated on the Backsberg Wine Estate between Franschhoek and Paarl.
Weekends are the best time for a visit to this popular winelands restaurant and wine estate.
That’s when the lamb aromatically turns on the spit braai.

From the moment you drive up the long acacia and oak tree-lined driveway, you’ll begin to realise that a lunch at Backsberg is undoubtedly a linger-longer affair
The idea is to make the overall dining experience, not just the food, as enjoyable as possible.
A good bottle of Backsberg wine to go with your meal, together with great service and a relaxed leafy setting, all contribute to achieving this.
A strong focus on consistency is at the core of Backsberg’s approach to how they run their restaurant – and the high number of local “regulars” is testament to this.

The daytime-only restaurant operates every single day of the year, serving lunches and a varied a la carte menu that features traditional South African meals.

Kids will also feel right at home at Backsberg and can get rid of their energy on the swings and jungle gyms for the morning or afternoon while you enjoy the tranquillity of the uncluttered and lush garden setting.
