This was my 1st visit and I was extremely impressed with the presentation and the flavours of the food. The plating was flawless as well presented. I can strongly recommend Le Coin as one of the Top restaurants in Franschhoek.

We had the 6 course tasting menu. It was amazing. Could not have had better. Simple yet sophisticated and every mouth full was enjoyed. Well worth it! Great service, great atmosphere and warm welcome.

My wife and I opted for the 6 course tasting menu and what a feast. Since there are two choices for each course we both had a taste of everything. Except for one wine I found the pairing was excellent.
