who we are

A Scotsman, an American and a South African walked into a bar…and together agreed that they needed good beer. Fast. So, they opened a brewery-The Franschhoek Beer Company no less. And then they needed somewhere to dine together. So, they opened a restaurant. And not just any restaurant. This is Franks Corner Bar and Grill. Where we stand firm on quality fresh ingredients prepared with skill crafted over many years, the finest house-brewed beers and seltzers and last but certainly not least, heartfelt Franschhoek hospitality.

My girlfriend and I went to Franks for lunch on Saturday 8 March and were not disappointed. We sat outside under a beautiful tree, our waiter was friendly and the food was delicious. You simply must try their non alcoholic lemonade, made with local lemons - it was the best I've ever tasted. Reasonably priced too. Overall, a great experience.

After many enjoyable meals it’s only fair to leave an outstanding review. Definitely the best restaurant in Franschhoek. The steaks are getting continuous rave reviews, highly recommend mussels, corn dogs, seafood pasta and the cacio e pepe, prawn tostada, tuna tataki, baba ghanoush, pork chop, burgers and the now famous sole! Great service, great wine list, best craft beers, seltzers, gin, cocktails.. great outdoor seating.
