Inside the beautiful Le Quartier Francais Hotel in the sleepy village of Franschhoek, in South Africa’s Western Cape, sits the number one restaurant in the country. A small room dedicated to local, fresh ingredients and uniquely African flavors, The Tasting Room, as it’s called, is a dining experience for true foodies. Imagined by Relais & Chateaux grand chef, Margot Janse, the restaurant draws crowds in through simple yet imaginative fare that is presented in the most artful of ways. The interior was designed by Margot’s brother, famed Dutch designer Herbert Janse, and makes for the perfect backdrop to explore the many courses brought to your table throughout the typical three-and-a-half hour dinner. If you’re in town or want to add an important stop on your upcoming culinary tour, make The Tasting Room a priority.
