9 Lives: Dine with Frecnh Flair at Monneaux

Posted on Tue January 13, 2015 in Online Press.

We recently visited Monneaux Restaurant at Franschhoek Country House for an evening of fine dining. This was our experience.

One of my favourite spots in the Cape Winelands is Franschhoek. It’s just a 45 minute drive from Cape Town, and neighbours the popular student town, Stellenbosch, but Franschhoek has managed to maintain it’s small town character – drawing visitors in with quaint coffee shops, eateries, fine dining restaurants, chocolateries, galleries and various shops lining it’s roads, all tucked between the mountain ranges, stretches of vineyards and rolling pastures with horses grazing lazily. It’s the perfect spot for a quick weekend getaway when Cape Town shows off her finest weather.
