Le Quartier Français
Le Quartier Français is an exclusive boutique hotel situated in the heart of the Franschhoek Valley. Tucked away in secluded gardens, with beautiful views, it is a fairytale-like haven of tranquility. A complete gastronomic journey can be experienced at Le Quartier Français. Sticky buns for breakfast, WOW-bites on The Common Room terrace and award-winning South African inspired cuisine by Margot Janse in the award-winning Tasting Room. It is the extra-ordinary staff; the opulently comfortable rooms and the attention to detail that ensure that this property is the ultimate spoiling.
During your stay, explore the village's quaint shops, galleries, the chocolaterie, chacuterie or enjoy wine tasting, fly-fishing, horse riding and golfing. Eating is not a problem in Franschhoek - the gourmet capital of South Africa - abundant with great cafes and restaurants and more than 40 wineries to visit! We advise that you pre-book your restaurants, golf times and tours before you arrive in Franschhoek to avoid disappointment. We are happy to do this for you.
Cuisine - The Tasting Room
The Tasting Room at Le Quartier Français is the stage for award-winning chef Margot Janse and her unique, contemporary African-inspired surprise Tasting Menu. Surprise: an emotion that occurs when something breaks our habitual pattern. Here, serious diners have the opportunity to experience a true journey of taste that continues to evolve and astonish. The Tasting Room creates a dining experience unlike any other … one where surprise and nostalgia take centre stage. Interior decorator of The Tasting Room and scenographer by profession, Herbert Janse, says: “In The Tasting Room every dish is engaging; refined with a distinct feminine touch and, at the same time, unexpectedly exciting … exhilarating in fact. It is this contradiction that results in balance of The Tasting Room’s dishes."
