Pet Friendly Restaurants in Franschhoek

So you have found your lovely pet friendly accommodation and you’ve brought your furry friend(s) along on your awesome getaway with you, but you don’t want to leave them alone, cooped up in a strange place, while you go out to sample the local cuisine.

This is not a problem if you are in Franschhoek! We have two great pet friendly restaurants that we can personally recommend.



Café Bon Bon

Café Bon Bon is a cozy little restaurant where your pet will be most welcome, as it is on a pet friendly guest farm (La Petite Dauphine – pets allowed by prior arrangement and agreement).

Your dog is most welcome there (with a few basic house rules – see attached image) and there is even a paddock for them to play in to their heart’s content – provided you keep an eye on them.

They are open every day for breakfast and lunch, as well as Friday and Saturday evenings for dinner.

Opening Times: Monday to Sunday: 08h00 till 17h00 (Breakfast & Lunch)
Wednesday, Friday & Saturday: 08h00 until late (Breakfast, Lunch & Dinner)

French Connection

French Connection is a delightful bistro-styled restaurant, with a warm nod to the local inhabitants’ ancestry. The sidewalk café atmosphere can be enjoyed all year round (heaters and blankets are provided in winter).

Your dog is welcome to join you, but only in the outside area unfortunately. (There is a covered porch so advanced bookings would be recommended on rainy days).

They are open every day for lunch and dinners seven days a week.

Opening Times: Monday to Sunday: 12h00 till 15h30 (Lunch)
Monday to Sunday: 18h30 till 21h30 (Dinner)
