Description: Monneaux Restaurant ranks among South Africa's top restaurants, and serves an inspired contemporary take on the classics. Lunch is enjoyed on the fountain terrace under a spreading pepper tree while dinner is enjoyed in the elegant but relaxed dining room in the original manor house. Set on the original site of Franschhoek's first parfumerie, today its the heavenly scent of chef Adrian Buchanans cooking that inspires at the Monneaux Restaurant, a Cape culinary classic. Even by the food & wine capital of the country's high standards, Monneaux is an extra-ordinary success, having been in the country's Top 100 list for six years consecutively, on the Top 10 list for two years and winning the American Express Platinum Award for fine dining. The underground cellar is available for private functions where dinner can be enjoyed by an impressive selection of local and foreign wines. The restaurant's bar lounge provide a comfortable environment to relax and enjoy the company you're with. The wine list emphasizes the boutique wines of the Franschhoek Valley as well as an impressive selection of other award winning wines of South Africa

A good place for an intimate dinner. Great food (I had the salt & pepper prawns & John had the dukka chicken - both very good).
Staff were attentive and the ambience was perfect for us we had a tiring day. It was cosy, warm for a winters evening and loved the fairy lights and candles in the garden. A good option for a quiet night.

Place recommended by La Petit Ferme (where we were staying) restaurant provides transport if required. We opted for the tasting menu and were impressed by the standard of food combined with wine selection. Friendly staff, discreet service. Recommended for dinner whilst in the western cape.

Good full menu option with wine - good value for money with enough wine included - not just for tasting!

We have dined here many times in the past and the food is consistently very good. We have noticed lately that the level of service improved since it was lacking a bit in the past.
