The menu is not your usual..... starters, main, dessert, etc..... Here at Monneaux, you have a selection of small plates.... so you can stimulate your taste buds with all sorts. The steak is exceptional..... staff is amazing, and the setting beautiful..... will return again!

This restaurant, which is outside the town has a wonderful feel and ambience. The grounds, which are extensive are filled with local art and could be a trip by itself. The restaurant is comfortable and the food is quite good.

Monneaux Restaurant ranks among South Africa's top restaurants, and serves an inspired contemporary take on the classics. Lunch is enjoyed on the fountain terrace under a spreading pepper tree while dinner is enjoyed in the elegant but relaxed dining room in the original manor house. Set on the original site of Franschhoek's first parfumerie, today its the heavenly scent of chef Adrian Buchanans cooking that inspires at the Monneaux Restaurant, a Cape culinary classic. Even by the food & wine capital of the country's high standards, Monneaux is an extra-ordinary success, having been in the country's Top 100 list for six years consecutively, on the Top 10 list for two years and winning the American Express Platinum Award for fine dining. The underground cellar is available for private functions where dinner can be enjoyed by an impressive selection of local and foreign wines. The restaurant's bar lounge provide a comfortable environment to relax and enjoy the company you're with. The wine list emphasizes the boutique wines of the Franschhoek Valley as well as an impressive selection of other award winning wines of South Africa
