The Tasting Room

The Tasting Room

One of Restaurant Magazine's top 100 restaurants in the world, this eatery at the venerated Relais & Chateaux boutique hotel Le Quartier Français is usually booked out for months, so make sure you call ahead for a reservation as soon as you know Franschhoek is on your itinerary. Chef Margot Janse is an institution in South Africa, and every evening she turns out an extraordinary surprise feast. Decide between the five- and the eight-course tasting menu, but that's the last decision you'll be making tonight. The servers will bring you whatever they choose, with courses ranging from figs topped with a local goat cheese to a curried monkfish on a bed of daal to an octopus salad with quinoa.
