A few years ago GP used to be the in place to go for Sunday lunch with live local bands and excellent food in a beautiful setting but those days seem long gone now. The setting is still lovely but the food has been inconsistent for many years now and the service is poor and it seems they are more... More

My girlfriend and I took the Wine Tram around the Estates, but we prebooked our picnic lunch and Grande Provence. The food took a little long to arrive (I think the waiter said they forgot we were there already), which was a bit disappointing. However the views were amazing and there was only one other couple, sitting far away, who... More

Perfect place for lunch - excellent food, lovely staff (especially Justine) and beautiful setting; only a pity they have sold the elephant!

Grande Provence is a beautifully appointed restaurant with a superb menu and wine list (naturally). we had a lovely outside table in the garden area and were warmly welcomed. we decided to go with the menu plus wine pairing and that's where it all went wrong. the starter worked well - delicious food and wonderful wine choice. But then the... More

We dropped in for a wine tasting, having visited some years ago on a previous trip to Franschook. I think the gardens have got even better, beautiful kept and providing the most idyllic setting to relax and try some great wines. The Angels Tears Rose was so smooth and drinkable that we had to take a case away with us.... More

Everyone talks about the Franschhoek restaurant scene, no one talks about Grand Provence. After 30 days in S. Africa, only Luke Dale Roberts X in JoBurg was as good. Very inventive, perfect setting in the garden, wonderfully understand local staff, and completely knowledgable without ever having left their valley. Kudos. one note....make a later dinner reservation. Lots of loud, drinking... More

We went to this Restaurant because of a recommendation. The service was excellent but I am afraid we did not really enjoy the food. I think on reflection it was probably the choices we made!

As many other wine farms in the area, lots of money is spent on the estate and for visitors. Grande Provence made it really nice, it's cosy and thought through. Especially outside in the patio where there's even an open fire burning. So it's with great expectation you sit down to enjoy the dinner. There's where it goes all wrong.... More

What a treat to visit here. Beautiful surroundings, stunning decor and art. Unfortunately, we were greeted rather disappointingly. A slight 'argument' that we didn't have a reservation, my husband literally had to find the confirmation email to confirm we did, the 'manager' found our name and told us somebody had ticked the incorrect guests. Not our problem. No apology. Sit... More
