Last time we were in South Africa on holiday, Foliage proved to be the culinary highlight of a trip. Two years on we made a point of coming straight back to Franschhoek, the centre of global cuisine , and of course Foliage its pinnacle. The other reviews say it all... Chris and his team consistently deliver magic on a plate in a relaxed and beautiful environment. Amazing team to watch in action and for us this place retains top spot in our affection despite string competition on our global travels . Enjoy, we do

We visited with friends during August 2017.

The service is warm, attentive and welcoming!

The food is prepared thoughtfully and very tasty as ingredients are foraged and used same day.

This is high-end dining and well suited for special occasions and celebrations or for foodies who enjoy the immense effort that goes into preparing food.

We had a variety of dishes and shared amongst ourselves so that we could taste a range of food.

We were able to take wine and a corkage fee applies. Great benefit and thank you Foliage!

Portions are generous and the display breathtaking! Love the open concept kitchen as well.

All round a good experience!

The 5 course menu of matching wines was (almost) excellent and each dish had its own 'theme'. The only reason for 'almost' was that right # 3 should have been served on a hot plate. This meant that the meat had become cold before serving and we do not think it was intended. Otherwise they had 5 stars.

My partner and I ate here whilst staying in the Winelands and have to say it was fantastic. The food was delicious, my partner had the beef and I had the pork. It was so delicious and the plate was like a work of art! We were lucky enough to get a table right beside the kitchen and could watch the chefs at work.
The restaurant isn't huge so recommend you book well in advance if you are planning on visiting the area.
