we have created two very different restaurants to tempt your taste buds, encapsulating what Franschhoek is all about – good food and good wine in beautiful surroundings.

Mange Tout Restaurant

Beautifully appointed to give full expression to the spectacular valley views, mange tout is a fine dining restaurant in every aspect.

The room has an elegant provençal feel that is matched with a skilful touch and contemporary design.

Executive chef, Ryan smith’s skill and dedication shows in his dishes to which many previous diners will testify. His enthusiasm and passion for food is noticeable in the lavishly plated and richly textured menus. bExperience the explosion in your mouth when you take your very first bite, wishing it could last longer.

Then swirl the wine in your glass, selected especially for you to compliment the next bite awaiting you.

Bar

Here is where you will find our guests at sunset, prior to dinner, sipping on a glass of chilled bubbly, a local wine or one of our fabulous cocktails. Enjoy the views around you and nibble on a canapé while our staff deal with your dinner reservations.

In the winter our roaring fire burns from breakfast to bed time, so let us ply you with hot chocolate and home made cookies.

Our lighter bar menu is available daily till 6pm.

Country Kitchen

Located in the wine tasting facility of Mont Rochelle vineyards, the country kitchen offers relaxed dining, with the slant on mediterranean fare. The perfect spot for an al fresco lunch or cosy dinner.

As described by Richard Holmes, “it might only be a few minutes drive away but it’s a world apart when it comes to soaking up the sights and sounds of the winelands.’’

Wine tasting can be conducted at restaurant tables – a perfect way to see which wine goes best with dishes ordered.

Picnic

The simple things in life often give on the most pleasure. Pick up a picnic basket at the country kitchen and take a stroll with your blanket in hand, through the vineyards down to the dam, into the rose garden or to the shade of an oak or weeping willow and make yourself comfortable.

Unpack your basket of delights, open a bottle of chilled wine, sit back and relax, while you nibble a little, read a good book, or have a chat and a giggle with family and good friends.

The Vineyard

Situated against the Klein Dassenberg Mountains, you will find our quaint boutique cellar, with its unique character and layout due to its historic origin. Previously a fruit packing shed, the cellar dates back 150 years.

The vineyards were first planted in 1994. In 2001 miko rwayitare bought the farm and became the first black African to own a wine farm in South Africa.

The philosophy is simple, “keep it traditional”. Keeping it traditional allows all the wines to develop as Mother Nature intended, only when absolutely necessary does the winemaker step in and intervene. This philosophy allows us to produce wines that are easy drinking, well structured and of high quality that will be fit for any occasion. Quality comes as second nature here and we strive to produce nothing but that.
