Rated one of the leading restaurants in the Franschhoek Valley, already considered one of South Africa’s culinary hot spots, our Franschhoek Kitchen reflects an ethos based on contemporary south african cuisine. Our hearts are always drawn to the simplicity and pureness of the ingredients we use. This honest approach sees our guests enjoying authentic homemade dishes inspired by the country we live in and the farm we call ‘home’.
Seasonality heavily influences our cuisine in the same way it influences the vineyards, ourselves and everything else on the estate, which is emphasized even more by the fact that much of our fruit and vegetables are home-grown with the utmost care on the Holden Manz Wine Estate, arriving on your plate fresh, healthy and filled with the vibrance of the Franschhoek Valley.
Enjoy our range of award winning Holden Manz wines paired or on their own as you soak up the atmosphere of the breathtaking surrounds.
Great service, excellet food, warm and friendly atmosphere. My wife and I had an amazing dinner here on Saturday night. Everything we ordered was excellent and the attention to detail on every dish was incredible. Our starters took a little bit long to arrive (we didn't even notice) and the management insisted that we not be charged for them, and they were delicious! An absolute gem of a restaurant and great value for money too. We will definitely be back!
Loved the 'tapas Sunday' experience. A very high standard of food and service and the setting was breathtaking!
An absolute gem, with good quality honest cooking. This is now one of my favourites!
