The start of the meal was good but our last course was a disappointment. I requested that the dessert be served after the last dish but both arrived at the same time. The ice-cream had melted by the time we got to eat the dessert and despite asking for a dessert spoon twice, it never arrived. This was pathetic service particularly since a 12.5% service tip is automatically added to the bill. The service deteriorated as the meal progressed and the restaurant became busy.
A perfect dining experience. From start to finish...
The food is really good. The service was too slow. We sat there more than 3 hours for 5 courses menu.
The food was amazing! Each course is a journey... the staff were so friendly and welcoming, the service was seamless and fluid... if you're visiting Franschhoek, make sure you book an evening for dinner at Protege
Blown away by consistent quality of small plates and service to match.
About Protégé Restaurant
Protégé hits all the spots with a refined, flavour-packed approach to casual fine-dining, a concept that seems to be on the rise lately.
- Lynda Ingham-Brown, Eat Out
Protégé is an exciting new casual fine dining eatery under the guidance of previous Eat Out Chef of the Year, La Colombe’s Scot Kirton.
Scot is proud to be part of the process of recognising young talented chefs and giving them the opportunity to put themselves on the map. In keeping with this, the restaurant was aptly named Protégé.
Jess van Dyk will head the kitchen team. Jess has been working closely with Scot and James Gaag for many years and was most recently the head chef at La Colombe.
The idea with Protégé is to keep it casual and comfortable. Jess is working with local suppliers to keep the menu as fresh and as seasonal as possible. “I could not be prouder of having Jess lead the team. She has given me so much over the years and now it’s time for me to help her achieve her dreams.” says Kirton.
