Grande Provence is an exceptional fine dining experience, a highlight of the Cape winelands, and a must do as a part of your Franschhoek experience. The food is high quality, French/European standard fine dining, combined with Cape warmth, atmosphere, style and inspiration for ingredients. We've eaten here several times, and the quality of the food and overall experience is consistent.... More

I had the privilege of being taken here on a date and it was exceptional. It was a rainy evening and there was a crackling fire keeping the restaurant warm and comfortable. We had an excellent waiter who was attentive but not overbearing and extremely friendly and down to earth. Because this restaurant would be considered a "fine dining" establishment,... More

It is not often that I take the time to write reviews on here. Being in the industry, this is somewhat shameful, however saying that, the fact that I am taking the time to write this review speaks volumes of the establishment and the experience had. Heading in to season and in much need for a break and spoil (and... More

Mostly tourists here, not many locals. Dishes are tiny. Have a five course menu and you feel more hungry than after a single dish in most places around here. Quality is good though. The bar next door is very inviting.

Ate here last week whilst staying in the Franschhoek area looking for potential wedding venues. This restaurant (and winery) had been recommended to us. On the positive side, the drive in, the surrounding grounds, and the various pieces of artwork in the gardens are lovely and at night there are oil lanterns dotted around which create a nice ambience. However,... More

Went with family to celebrate my birthday and had lunch under the trees. It was restful and so relaxing and the food as usual absolutely mouth watering. Never get tired of going to this restaurant. Each dish is delicious and so well presented that you simply cannot fault it. Thank you once again to Grande Provence to making my day!

We decided to treat ourselves for our 18th Wedding Anniversary and book into the Grande Provence for the weekend. The Owner's cottage is tastefully furnished, the bed was comfortable and the linen superb. A beautiful wine and food pairing was given by Francis who was obviously very knowledgeable. However, this, unfortunately is where the positives stop and all the negatives... More
