We spent 2 nights in Franschhoek, dining out 1 of those nights. As it was Saturday night, all of the main street restaurants were booked. That certainly worked out for us, as we had our best meal of the holiday at Le Bon Vivant. I did the chef's choice starter, and experienced the best prawn ever (I'm from San Diego), as well as other incredible tastings. Main courses were also top notch. We weren't in the mood for dessert, but observing the other tables, it looked to be a religious experience as well. Don't hesitate to book a table here.

We only had one night in Franschoek, and chose to try Le Bon Vivant after walking around a few restaurants to look at menus. It proved to be a great choice. Service was excellent, the food was quite stunning in its presentation and absolutely delicious. There was, as you would expect in Franschoek, an excellent wine list! Our meal was exceptional and good value. We recommend Le Bon Vivant without hesitation. Central location.

Went there with my wife for my birthday, and it was just perfect. We let ourselves be carried by the “Chef’s choice “, which meant the chef will decide on multiple dishes and there was a wine pairing associated to each dish... amazing beautiful place and great service. 100% recommended!

We were three people and got to the place at 7pm. It was already quite full, so we were lucky to have had a reservation. There is an a la Carte menu, but you can also order the great 5-course menu.
It is quite expensive for South African standards, but of very high quality. You can even look into the kitchen and watch the cooking happen.
