Get to Know Franschhoek
There’s a top-class restaurant on every corner of Franschhoek’s pretty main road and beautiful wine estates blanket its tranquil valley.
When the French Huguenots settled in this fertile valley they called it Franschhoek. But they had no idea that their chosen spot would one day house some of the best restaurants in the country. An artfully presented gourmet meal awaits diners at The Tasting Room, Ryan’s Kitchen, La Petite Ferme and Reuben’s, to name just a few. Beyond the centre, a number of farms such as La Motte Wine Estate and Haute Cabriere offer tastings and meals just as memorable as their counterparts in town.
