Simple Sophisticated Dining
La Residence, Franschhoek
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.
Using ingredients to tell stories
Join Executive Chef Greg Henderson on his culinary journey.
Award-winning chef Greg Henderson is also a self-described forager who takes great delight in discovering seasonal wild ingredients and incorporating these into his world-class dishes. He’s excited about the opportunity to work with the La Residence team to help them bring their traditional kitchen wisdom to life, and share their stories. Chef Greg is a leading light in the Wild Food Revolution – a movement he believes can transform our relationship with food, and help us all forge a deeper relationship with the Earth.
