Dining at La Residence

In the heart of South Africa's wine country, the experience at La Residence is focused on fine wine and delicious cuisine.

Executive Chef Lennard Marais oversees the dining experience at La Residence. His cuisine emphasises fresh, local ingredients, many of which are grown on the estate.

Because the cuisine is such an integral part of the experience at La Residence, our guests will often sit down with the chefs to discuss their preferences and dietary requirements with menus being tailored accordingly.

The chefs at La Residence are of the highest calibre, dedicated to ensuring that every meal is unforgettable.

Breakfast at this Franschhoek hotel is a lavish affair. All manner of cereals and fruits are on offer, as well as a scrumptious hot breakfast menu and continental breakfast selection including cold meats, fruits, cheeses and delicious pastries.

Lunch is fresh and flexible. The chef presents a seasonal, à la carte lunch and dinner menu that is alive with flavour.

Night-time dining at La Residence is always something to look forward to. Begin with an apéritif in the loggia while watching the sunset over the dam, or sit beside the fire for cocktails and canapés by candlelight.

The dining area at La Residence is known as the Great Hall – resplendent with dazzling chandeliers, black and white Victorian tiles and vast fireplaces. Outside, the Persian Alley offers a delightful setting for alfresco meals, overlooking the lush green lawn and palm fronds.

And, of course, no lunch or dinner would be complete without a carefully selected wine from the extensive wine list. Our wine stewards are on hand to offer advice or guide you through a food and wine pairing where we will select a wine that complements the flavour profile of the dishes you have chosen.


The Chef's Table

At the Chef’s Table in the Great Hall guests will enjoy a completely interactive evening with one of our celebrated chefs. An evening perfectly curated to your preferences and interests.

The experience begins with a leisurely stroll through the La Residence gardens. During the summer months, the abundance of black figs, ripe pomegranates, juicy plums, green artichokes and fragrant herbs will leave you spoiled for choice as you select the freshest seasonal ingredients for your feast.

The four-course meal complete with amuse bouche, palate cleanser and petits fours will be prepared in front of you while the chef talks you through the ingredients, cooking techniques and flavours. All that remains is for you to enjoy your meal accompanied by a perfectly paired selection of wines by our wine steward.


Dining For Non-Residents

La Residence is open to the public for breakfast, lunch, afternoon tea and dinner subject to availability and by prior reservation. Breakfast can only be booked through the hotel for non-residents.

For the more adventurous, La Residence is now offering an exclusive number of Country Picnic Baskets to be enjoyed each Saturday and Sunday afternoon on the lawns surrounding our tranquil pond with views overlooking the Franschhoek mountains and 30 acre estate. Included in the picnic basket is a delicious selection of seasonal produce, freshly baked goods and locally sourced charcuterie, spreads and preserves.

Couples, friends and families can enjoy a lovely selection of local wines and iced beverages that pair perfectly with our wide-selection of picnic treats and the natural beauty of the surroundings.
