Grand looking place but the information delivered by the staff during the wine tasting we had was very indifferent and as though they were not really bothered. One of our selection was delivered without any background as we were talking with another couple, so it was just poured and they walked away. The bill was hastily put in front of... More

Visited the winery on chance for lunch . Outside was fully booked however we were invited into the air conditioned dining area which was very comfortable . We could only say the food was excellent as was the service . The menu is small but exquisite and beautifully presented. The only reason for not giving 5 stars was the price... More

One of the classic wineries in the Franschoek area, this lovely estate is the perfect venue for a wedding. We were there in the heat of South African summer and everything was outside and we were all still comfortable. A gorgeous garden, with trees providing shade, a breeze down the valley, and water features, all of which made for everyone's... More

Grand Provence was the last stop on our wine tram tour and the only one where we felt a bit lost on arrival. There didn't seem to be any clear sign-posting of where we should head for the tasting so we eventually asked a passing staff member who pointed in the direction of a shady corner with a couple of...

What a beautiful place. We attended a wedding reception in the gardens. The service was impeccable, the wines superb and the food was very good. At night the lighting was very romantic but still sufficient to see by. The music is played in a venue about 30 meters from the dinning area, which means you can still talk without shouting.

Had the privilege of staying and eating on this wonderful farm. It is in a delightful setting and the hospitality received was fantastic. The accommodation is first class and the restaurant was of a very high standard with fantastic wines available. The experience was first class and I would definitely visit again the next time I return to South Africa.... More

Wow !!!! What a place. What a setting. It doesn't get much better than this. We ate lunch here on our first day in Franschoek (next day's lunch being at The Kitchen at Maison). Totally blown away by the setting. We were all well satisfied with the dishes we were served, APART from a couple of hiccoughs. Skip the cheese... More

This is one of the most beautiful wine farms in the western cape. The grounds are stunning. The Dutch Colonial buildings are beautifully updated and maintained. The decor is high-end. And, the art gallery is first rate. I have been there many times and will hopefully return soon.

My wfie and I had dinner at the restuarant yesterday evening. Unfortunately, it did not meet expextations. It started with the pouring of a glass of Chardonnay. Only about 2/3 of what one would expect when purchasing a glass of wine. We ordered the four course dinner. That was the only choice. All of the four courses were at best... More

The place is super nice. I had lunch al fresco in the gardens. The food was superb and the wines I tried one better than the other one. I did food pairing. Great maitre called Daniel. Super knowledgeable and kind. Came home with two wines I bought straight from my table.
