Franschhoek Wine Valley

Entrée Restaurant

A short distance from the hustle and bustle of Franschhoek’s town centre, embraced by magnificent mountains, you will find Entrée Restaurant.

The name Entrée, French for “starter”, was inspired by the exciting menu concept which offers a variety of starter-sized dishes.

Our menu re-defines the space between a traditional large-portioned al la carte menu and the finer dining tasting menus. The Entrée menu fuses the variety and creative flair of a set menu whilst still offering you all the choice and affordabilty of an al la carte experience. Entrée has partnered with Anthonij Rupert and offers wine tastings of the L’Ormarins MCC and their Cape of Good Hope range of wines.

This charming restaurant is steeped in history, holding many secrets of the Franschhoek Valley’s past.
The converted 19th century building invites you in with its stylish interior, the copper piping accents, exposed brick walls and giant indoor fireplace creates a natural, warm ambiance, a perfect fit for an intimate dinner for two or a comfortable get together with friends and family.

Our indoor space extends to overlook the stunning gardens, the concertina doors open-up to give you that indoor, outdoor feel to enjoy on those balmy summer evenings.

The patio area is perfect for enjoying a long, lazy lunch, we welcome families with children and provide a fun outdoor play area that is sure to keep the little ones entertained. Our easy-going approach to dining welcomes “man’s best friend” we are delighted to offer a friendly pet policy too.
