Bistro Style Restaurant

Paulina’s was named in honour of the original owner of the property, Paulina de Villiers. 

She was one of the first lady landowners in South Africa and loved the land she tamed and planted. Paulina spent many years nurturing crops and working the same soils you see on the estate today. To pay respect to Paulina, and the land, the restaurant team are supporting local producers and farmers, just the way Paulina would have.

Paulina’s Restaurant has earned its place in the Cape’s cuisine capital, offering a variety of elegant bistro-style dishes with a range of mouth-watering desserts to finish. Every creation from the restaurant team is given extra zest by the striking beauty of the vineyards and stunning views of the Franschhoek mountains.

Take a seat on the terrace with magnificent vineyard and mountain views or cosy up in front of the fireplace in the colder months, while sipping on a glass of fine wine. The full range of award-winning Rickety Bridge wines are available to compliment your lunch. Taste your way through the ranges at the Wine Tasting Centre or follow the suggested wine pairings on the menu. A carefully selected menu has been created to delight the little ones, as well.

The restaurant can be booked for special functions and is ideal for any celebration with family and friends, as well as dinners for groups of 10 people or more. The separate dining room is available for private groups, with set menus available upon request.
