Dishes are considered and beautifully presented, but not on the intimidating side of fine dining. Chef Chris Erasmus consistently delights and surprises beyond the foraging 'trend'. Highly...More

This restaurant is a foodie experience. The food is exquisitely presented Service is excellent. Very unusual combination of food which may not suit all palates. We went with friends and everyone enjoyed their evening. There is a 2 or 3 course menu.

The food here was just out of this world. Recommended to by friends in Cape Town, we enjoyed 2 days in Franschhoek, having lunch and dinner at Foliage. Presentation and quality of ingredients was amazing. We will return on our next trip to South Africa!

Enjoyed watching the kitchen team prepare the meals - a real feeling of teamwork. We thoroughly enjoyed our meals - not too big or over complicated.

The town of Franschhoek is said to be one of the best places to eat in SA (which may be understandable given the French heritage) and Foliage certainly confirms this view. This is a warm, rather lively, friendly and casual place and the food is...More
