Description: Come, relax and indulge in a Franschhoek restaurant like no other, namely Genot. This small indulgence (a literal translation of our name) is big on the delicate tastes of the Winelands, with a welcoming feel that relaxes you as you sit down for a glass of Klein Genot’s famous wines, harvested straight from the surrounding vineyards. Owners Joey and Angie Diamond were motivated by a desire to offer visitors to Klein Genot only the very best sensory and culinary experiences and have selected Chef Mark Radnay to run the estate's premier restaurant in Franschhoek.

We had a perfect dinner in January 2009 at the Klein Genot just a few days before their official opening. Dinner was perfect, delicious Tuna, superb chocolate something. Service was excellent. Price was moderate like mostly in S.A. in comparison to German pricing. Would come again next time. Recommended!

Staying at Klein Genot we couldn't really miss out on eating at the attached, but quite separate restaurant, and we're glad we did too. Décor at the restaurant was lovely, more like the sort of up-market place you’d find in fashionable parts of London and New York, than on a wine estate in the smallest of the major wineland towns....
