Restaurants at wine estates in Franschhoek

South Africa's gourmet capital

Franschhoek is one of the oldest towns in South Africa, notable for having some of the top restaurants in the country and a handful of five star chefs who take their food pretty seriously. Coupled with an excellent wine culture and natural beauty, Franschhoek is our little France.

ENJOY SOUTH AFRICAN CUISINE AT THIS WINE ESTATE
Visit the culturally-rich wine estate of La Motte for a taste of the culture and heritage of the Franschhoek region. With a unique and modern interpretation of South African cuisine, Executive Chef Eric Bulpitt pays a special tribute to the late, great South African artist Jacob Hendrik Pierneef (1886–1957) through the menu at Pierneef à La Motte
Wine to try: La Motte Pierneef Syrah-Viognier
Signature dish: The Karoo lamb rump
Top tip: Grab a seat near the fireplace in the colder months, or a table on the enclosed patio – the latter offers scenic views of the La Motte wine estate.
