Franschhoek Wine Valley

Ryan’s Kitchen

Ryan’s Kitchen, a new and unique restaurant located on Franschhoek Main Road. Serving our very own brand of ‘Contemporary South African Cooking”, we strive to bring the many different cultural and historical elements of our country to the modern dining table by way of utilizing the excellent purveyors of fine local foods that abound as well as our skill and ingenuity in the kitchen.

Dine inside our restaurant, where the intimate nature and closeness to the kitchen and myself makes every table “A Chef’s Table”. Alternatively, dine outside on our terrace in the rose garden…a landmark location in the village. Having trained in Europe and worked worldwide for my entire career it was always a dream to have my own restaurant. With Ryan’s Kitchen my dream has been realized. My wife, Lana, who runs the front of house and myself, will endeavour to ensure that every expectation is met from a service, creativity, food and excitement perspective.

We look forward to welcoming you to our restaurant.
