After approximately 15 minutes we managed to place our drinks order, and at the same time we also ordered scones from the menu, as our kids were very hungry at the time. 20 minutes later we were informed that the scones were sold out and after some negotiations...

What a shame. Due to poor training, the service was atrocious. Nice setting, food good. Good ambiance. Waited 20 to 25 minutes for starter, then main arrive and placed on table before I had finished my starter. The saying, "Ruin the ship for a half penny of tar," springs to mind.

situated at the La Franschhoek Hotel and Spa, Le Verge is an nice spot for lunch, music is playing in the background and inside the lovely glass houses, its like having lunch in a garden. The attentiveness of the waitresses could be better though, but I still love it.

This is a very elegant looking place situated deep in the valley. We came across it when finding our way to a hiking track. So one afternoon we decided to take a closer look. The house is lovely and so are the grounds. We were looking for an enjoyable lunch and were offered to sit on the terrace in those... More

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... More
