First visited Le Bon Vivant in 2013 and this was our 3rd visit. A wet Monday in April meant the place was barely half full whereas in Jan/ Feb it would be full. That said the food was excellent. Prawn starter and Springbok main. Very good service and close to the centre of Franschhoek. Well worth a visit.

We ate on the last evening before the winter break, eating the winter special menu, it was delicious, the fish, bok and cheese soufflé all first class, restaurant was quite empty and service could have been sharper but lovely evening

Excellent wine, a bottle of Cabernet Franc, very nice service, ask for a table near the fireplace which really gives a warm touch especially if it is pouring outside! Each dish was excellent, we had pork belly as a starter and then springbock, cooked to perfection, and the presentation of each dish was beautiful. Very nice flavours. Definitely recommend. They are running a winter set menu which is under 300 Rd fr 3 courses (you can also have rhe 2 courses option for cheaper) which really makes it very good value.

We enjoyed the 5 course surprise menu and wine pairing. Food was beautifully prepared and very tasty with all the components going together really well. Loved the variety from course to course. Very friendly staff and great service. Lovely cozy dining room with fireplace.

The service at this venue was outstanding! The food made the experience memorable and the restaurant was able to cater for vegetarians in our group with skipping a beat. Fine Dining which was not always perfect, but certainly great.
