Reuben's Restaurant & Bar

Reuben's Restaurant & Bar

Reuben’s Restaurant and Bar in Daniel Hugo Street, is almost diagonally opposite where the original Reuben’s stood in Main Street, Franschhoek. The glass entrance hall offers striking views of the Franschhoek mountains on the one side and an impressive wine cellar on the other. It’s the kind of place, where, according to Reuben Riffel, groups of families and friends should come and enjoy good food and one another’s company.

While the restaurant is a public space, it is still very personal. Many years of dedicated hours in various kitchens and 12 years after having opened his own restaurant with other business partners, it has come to this. The Riffels own their own restaurant.

Guests have a choice of seating in the main casually elegant restaurant area, or outside in the spacious courtyard. There is also a private dining room which can accommodate 16 people should you want to have a private function.

But wherever you sit, and whatever the surroundings, it is the food, as always that will impress you most. There is a choice of small plates or starters which can be shared tapas-style or you can have a more traditional 3-course meal. The menu is eclectic, a lot of Asian influences and great local ingredients. Some familiar flavours and some new ones.

Open Monday to Sunday (closed Tuesdays) for lunch from 12pm to 3pm and for dinner from 6.30pm to 9pm.
