Honest rustic country cuisine.

After a lavish breakfast buffet where all manner of cereals, fruits, cheeses and meats are on offer (not to mention the scrumptious hot breakfast menu) lunch at La Residence restaurant is fun, fresh and flexible. The emphasis is on light and tasty seasonal fare. Our passion for regional produce is always in evidence: we enjoy preparing traditional game such as springbok, local fish and free range poultry.

Dining at La Residence restaurant is always a leisurely experience. Begin with an apéritif in the loggia to experience sunset over the dam or sit beside the fire for cocktails and canapés by candlelight.

La Residence restaurant’s dining area is reminiscent of a manor hall, resplendent with dazzling chandeliers, black and white flooring and vast fireplaces, while outside, the Persian Alley offers a delightful setting for alfresco summer meals. Here a bubbling rill flows between lush green lawn and luxuriant floral borders. The chef presents a seasonal menu that is alive with flavour, made from the best local ingredients and produce freshly picked from La Residence’s own kitchen garden.

For something a little different, indulge in your own personalised cookery demonstration at our Chef’s Table. At the beautiful marble table in our La Residence restaurant dining hall, our chef will prepare your dinner, course by course, with full opportunity for interaction. Ask questions, taste as you go and learn some culinary secrets! This is a lovely experience for anyone with an interest in cooking or curious to understand how our chefs work their magic.

The Franschhoek area is rich in producers of the finest artisanal products. Hand-crafted cheeses such smooth, straw-coloured Angelot and delicious, cumin-spiced Boerenkaas are served with home-made preserves and breads. Local berries and fragrant fynbos honey are familiar faces on the dessert menu.

Guests are encouraged to put forward their food preferences, allergies and dietary requirements so that meals can be tailored to suit to their personal tastes and needs. All menus in La Residence’s restaurant are complemented by excellent South African wines.
