Having spent a week on the Western Cape Garden Route eating at various unique restaurants we ended our tour with a meal at The French Connection in Franschhoek. This was sadly the biggest disappointment of meals for the week. The attitude, although claiming to be "inviting" on the menus, left much to be desired. We had finished dry steaks and frozen vegetables and chips, although I had ordered potatoes, within 45 minutes and no drinks refill - we cannot comment on the desserts as the service and general food quality found us leaving when eventually obtaining the bill. A sad end to a week of mostly outstanding meals.
What a great find in Franschhoek! Unpretencious great food and very well priced menu and wine list. Perfectly seared salmon trout and fish cakes to die for, keep it up! We will be back.
Poor hygiene of staff. Overpriced restaurant. No ambience and shocking service.
