We are staying two nights here (a t La Residence)
Any thoughts on dinner selections? Suggestions by the agency that booked us are dinner at La Residence one night and The Tasting Room in Le Quartier Francais.
Prefer fresh, local, not stuffy, not overly formal and am concerned the above may be in that catagory?

  1. I can highly recommed Reuben's, on the main road of Franschhoek. Take a look here:

      Would also highly recomend Reuben's, outstanding food and service in a relaxing atmosphere. The Tasting Room served excellent food and wine,. It seems to strive to be a three star type of restaurant it is rather formal compared to most area restaurants. For lunch I highly recommend La Petite Ferme.

        Great lunch at Ruebens, FANTASTIC dinner at The Tasting Room. Wonderful chef's dinner at our hote, La Residence. ANd Bread and Wine was outstanding!

          I only have the opportunity on an upcoming trip to have lunch in Franschoek - If I have only one meal (lunch) I can enjoy which would you recommend the most? Thanks!
