“MOST TERRIBLE EXPERIENCE”
Reviewed March 17, 2013

Having previously visited this beautiful setting a few years back, we booked a table for six. On arrival today 17 March 2013 we found that the well appointed and beautifully placed Le Franschhoek Hotel was fairly deserted and the Le Verger Restaurant looks like ghost town. I complained to the manager Sean Allen, who has only been at his employ for a couple of weeks. All the staff were very accommodating and they prepared a table in what is otherwise a "ghost town" feeling of a restaurant. Deterioration is obvious. One of the "old" staff said this happens when "things go down"... All the staff were helpful but not so well prepared. We ordered a particular wine, but got another... It seems staff are not that well trained, but they are kind. The menu offered was not the restaurant menu but the lounge/bar menu, which is not really up to a good standard. There was no fish available on the menu, but they made an effort and offered us one type (hake). All kind of them, but really unprofessional. Such a beautiful setting for a place that I feel should not be open for business... Why advertise the "Le Verger" restaurant, when the old kitchen is all untidily packed up as if they had abandoned the place? Really, it is a shame and the Tourism department should not allow them to do this. Not a good experience. The manager did not come back to check up and quietly disappeared... all a real shame. Such a beautiful setting. What a pity.
