Great and personal service, always feel welcome. Good food from the main menu and exciting tapas, followed by excellent local wine, esp. those from own cellar. As the place is popular for functions, make a phone call before you go ther on the weekends

The food served at Freedom Hills is definitely interesting, but not too fussy. It also doesn't suffer from the pretentious atmosphere most restaurants in Franschhoek seemed to have adopted. It is a cosy, welcoming place with a great view over the mountains. The pork belly...More
