A little French, a little foreign, a little style they like to call Cape Provenal. Of course, some call it an Auberge, others an exclusive country inn.
In any language, Le Quartier Franais is a splash of style in the heart of the historic village of Franschhoek, a quaint corner of the Cape winelands that is forever a little French.
Set behind a delightful Provenal faade lined with a charming rose and lavender border, Le Quartier Franais welcomes visitors from all over the globe who come here to dine in fine style and spend the night in a room with a spectacular view.
A melange of French, Malay and traditional South African dishes, Margot Janses menu tempts with a modern twist of the old Cape and the new.
Taking top line honours, Le Quartier Franais has won two highly coveted awards in Wine Magazine`s Top 100 Restaurants in South Africa 2004. The restaurant that has become a culinary destination in the winelands won first-place for the top chef in South Africa and the top service in South Africa.
The highly trained staff are dedicated to spoiling you. Elegance made simple is the art of living around here.
