OUR RESTAURANT “Franschhoek Kitchen”

Welcome to Franschhoek, one of the culinary hot spots on the African continent. Our estate restaurant –  Franschhoek Kitchen, is rated one of the valley’s leading restaurants.

Franschhoek Kitchen’s standards are based on the best international cuisine but our heart lies in the simplicity and pureness of each and every ingredient. High dining is for others, we prefer to see our guests enjoy a home-made dish, inspired by the country we live in and the farm we work on.

Our vineyard is heavily influenced by the seasons, so are we, so is our food – nature at its best, brought onto your plate – either in the dining room, amidst the vines outdoors, or in form of a picnic along the Franschhoek river – always with a glass of award winning wine from our estate.

Are you going to be taking a adventure on Franschhoek’s super popular WINE TRAM? Make sure to stop at Holden Manz and enjoy a light meal downstairs to fill the gap or our delicious a la carte menu upstairs on the deck overlooking the majestic mountains of Franschhoek – a must do!

Additionally, we offer a shuttle service for guests and residents of the Franschhoek Valley – free of charge.
