Description: The Valley of the Huguenots is one of the premier wine destinations in the world. It is here that the Maison Estate produces wines that are nature's product, honed with skill, care and respect. Each vine is nurtured, each grape hand selected to give it that personal touch that is always home, always Maison. We make highly individual wines. We drink them with the people closest to us - and we love drinking them at home, where we can really explore the intimate character of each bottle," says Weylandt. "While travelling is my passion, the comforting memory of a meal, of intimate moments shared with good friends over good wine, always draws me home." This is Chris Weylandt's inspiration behind the name Maison - the French word for house. Explore Maison Estate. You won't regret it.

The meal that we had was very inventive, nicely presented and the service was great.
The view from the terrace is breathtaking.
The furniture is very inspiring and original.

The setting is superb and the waiter was delightful but the food...........the fish ( kingklip) was small, frozen and tasteless, the 200 gram steak was tough and the pork ribs consisted of four ribs with a 1 inch layer of pure fat on top ( inedible)- the cheese platter consisted of four small chunks of local cheese ( two were absolutely tasteless). At R350.00 per head..........disgusting! It must have been the chef's day off. I won't be back!

my wife and I stumbled across Maison on our way to "Ruebens" restaurant in Franschhoek, we just popped in for a quick wine tasting before our planned lunch. We immediately loved the vibe, the friendliness and the atmopsphere, so much so we asked if we could stay for lunch, we were told that they were full, but if we liked they would pull a table up in-front of the fire for my wife and myself and we could sit down and eat. One phone call to "Ruebens" later, we were firmly in place. The food, the service, the wine and the beautiful decoration, simply blew us a way. Do yourself a favour and go to see and eat at Maison, you will not be dissapointed.

No words can describe Arno's attention to flavour in his fantastic fresh menu. The food is an ode to the earth. Fresh, simple and tasty. The ambience is fantastic- an old yet stylish farm house feeling and the views over the vineyards and mountains- a joy! Do yourself a favour and try this culinary highlight. You won't be disappointed.

Our second visit to the Kitchen. Great fresh food, delicious! Calm relaxing atmosphere, friendly , warm with beautiful views. Excellent service and good wines. The chef is a master and creates amazing flavours. A top restaurant in the area and one of my favourites.
