Le Bon Vivant Restaurant


Tel: (021) 876-2717

Le Bon Vivant–nouvelle cuisine in the heart of Franschhoek.

Through the glass wall into the kitchen, watch owner and Chef Pierre Hendricks create stunningly beautiful 'artwork' on your plate, that just also happens to taste great. Set in a converted house and therefore smaller than some of the purpose-built restaurants in Franschhoek, Le Bon Vivant provides sophisticated diners with a memorable experience.

The ambience is fairly quiet, making it ideal for a more romantic evening. Despite the sophisticated surrounds, Pierre has added some unique and whimsical touches such as the lamp shades made from kitchen collanders.

In addition to the full a-la-carte menu, Pierre also offers a five-course surprise menu which takes the form of smaller 'tasting' courses. Although the menu is quite literally a surprise, inform the waiting staff of anything you don't eat and Pierre will adjust the menu accordingly.

Tables are available in the shaded garden next to the restaurant for luches or dinner on warm summer evenings.

Le Bon Vivant is closed on Wednesdays.
