Simple Sophisticated Dining

La Residence, Franschhoek

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

A dinner table of dreams

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

Of course, no dining table in Franschhoek 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.

Decadent cuisine throughout the day

Breakfast at our 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 of cured meats, fresh fruits, gourmet cheese, and flaky homemade pastries.

Lunch is fresh and flexible. Our chef curates seasonal lunch dishes and a 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 Chef’s Table

Enjoy a completely interactive evening with one of our celebrated chefs at The Chef’s Table in The Great Hall. An evening perfectly curated to your preferences and interests.

Savour a multi-course experience complete with amuse-bouche, palate cleanser, and petit fours that are all 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.
