Lunch in Franschoek

Which is better for lunch?

Should I do the picnic at boschendal or le petit ferme or grande provence? Since this is for lunch, I would like to be able to eat great food with a view. Thanks

I already reserved meals at LQF, Reubens, Le Bon Vivant.

Fluke,

If you are looking for a great meal with a wonderful view then out of your choices Le Petit Ferme wins hands down.

Hope you enjoy your Cape Town stay.

Our lunch at Le Petit ferme was one of our most memorable. The setting, the view, and the food - all spectacular.

Le Petit Ferme is a lovely place with an astounding view from the window tables and the lawns, but I would caution you to tone down your expectations regarding the food. Delicious, yes, but in no way would I call it four-star cuisine. It is more of a comfort food place, in my humble opinion. I believe they are known for their lamb and for their eggplant tarte.

Similarly, I would tone down your expectations for LQF and LBV too. JMO (coming from CA). Didn't try Ruebens.

That's true, dining out costs a fraction of what it does here. And if you go with the right expectations, it should be very enjoyable. I think our problem was we had too high expectations. Enjoy!
