We stopped for lunch and we're happy to find we could eat outside in the elegant courtyard. The food was hard to fault and most of the wine pairings excellent. It was however frustrating to only have a set menu choice (even if every course was excellent) as my wife only wanted a light lunch. The service at times was... More

Our final night in S Africa so we decided to go for the Gourmand dinner over 2-3 hours with wine pairings. Sat at the table right in front of a roaring log fire and indulged ourselves with great wines, including two from a partner vineyard in NZ, and delicious Food. All courses and wines were excellently presented and explained by... More

Our last visit on the wine team tour. Nice location and staff were very informative however it seemed that the wine was a little overpriced.

This is a well run high end restaurant/vineyard. We went to other places in town for tastings and food but this was easily the best. The staff were smart, knowledgable and helpful. The food was well presented in very pleasant surroundings and very tasty. The wine tasting option at R50 contained some really good wines and is probably the one... More

The views from the estate are pretty as a picture. The decor quite different from anything previously seen. The dessert wine is a little bit of heaven... light on the palate, oozing with a fruitiness with a strong litchi taste.

South Africa's wine country is the center of the nation's fine dining region. And one can find restaurants like Grande Provence, with its formal atmosphere and high prices, or Reuben's, in an informal setting with great food at a fraction of the price. We tried both during our recent visit to Franschhoek, and the differences were remarkable. Grande Provence offers... More

On a public holiday, part of the tram tour, they are out of stock on almost everything at 14h00. Cheese platters and the Rosé are not available. Unfriendly staff. Rather stay on the tram to next stop.

First wine team experience, and would strongly recommend a visit to Grande Provence. Their grounds, tasting room, restaurant and service are out of this world. They were flexible in allowing two of the three fixed courses to accommodate is catching the tram, and it was absolutely incredible!!!!! Like no other!!!!
