We had the 5 course "surprise" menu. Thoroughly recommended. Food delightful, well balanced and beautifully presented. Service was excellent and the wines were delicious. One of the best meals we have had.

What a fantastic evening! The service was incredible and the food was amazing. A tremendous value, as well. Loved the Springbok and the dessert sampler! Will be dreaming of this meal often until we can return to Franschhoek again! Highly recommend!

We had dinner at this restaurant on Friday night ..... it was FANTASTIC! The restaurant was warm and cosy, the service outstanding, and not only were the meals DELICIOUS, every plate was beautifully presented! We shared our meals, as we were desperate to do different tastings .... and I cannot actually tell you which of the tastings I preferred the most, they were all OUTSTANDING. Le Bon Vivant will most definitely see us again!

The restaurant I originally tried to book was closed for the month of July, so we came here at the recommendation of the owner of our guest house.

Wow, we had one of the best meals in South Africa here. We ordered drinks, soup, 3 starters, and main courses... EVERYTHING was delicious. High quality food with the most fabulous presentation.

I had their duck entree....so, so, so good.

We ate so much, but just had to order their enormous sampler dessert. My family fought over it... I mean, shared it.

Highly recommend this restaurant.

The restaurant was lovely and cozy with a nice fire in the fireplace...it was a chilly night. We had a veritable feast! The portions were huge, and the food and service was excellent. You can't go wrong!
