What are you doing tomorrow?

The mountains, surrounding the Franschhoek Valley, are covered with snow and there is a distinct nip in the air today. This is perfect weather when you consider that tomorrow is a public holiday.

If you’d like to do something delectable tomorrow why not join us, at iCi, for breakfast, lunch or dinner? Actually there is nothing to stop you from enjoying all three of those meals at iCi tomorrow!

We will have our crackling fires going so you know it’s going to be snug. We will also be offering our delicious Winter Warmer Menu.

See you – in iCi – tomorrow!

P.S. If you’re in the neighbourhood why don’t you pop into IS Art (the new Le Quartier Français gallery)? Our new exhibition is proving to be very popular!

P.P.S. On the way home you could also visit Bread & Wine Vineyard Restaurant and the Farm Grocer to sample, or buy-to-take-home,  Neil’s range of 2010 World Cup inspired sausages.

TV in iCi for the duration of the 2010 World Cup!

Our casual bistro – iCi – will be screening World Cup 2010 matches for the duration of the tournament!

This means that, starting this Friday the 11th of June 2010, iCi is going to be the place in Franschhoek to catch up on all things football.

Our crackling fires will keep away those winter chills and the delicious full or bar-snacks iCi menu will ensure that you never go hungry. Lend your country’s football team your full support and watch a game, or four, in iCi.

P.S. Don’t forget BaaFana Burger Friday.


Every Friday – until the end of World Cup – you can enjoy a BaaFana Burger, chips, a glass of Miss Molly wine and the free Friday night movie in our Screening Room!

Remember only  30, of Lamb Burger’s Football mad nephews, make an appearance so it’s first come first serve.

Yum!

The Condé Nast Gold List is the Condé Nast guide to their selection of the world’s greatest hotels as chosen by the magazine’s editors and travel experts. The hotels selected receive a gold award in a given category. The categories, for the 2010 Condé Nast Gold List are: service, location, food, rooms, leisure facilities, ambience and design.

There were two other exceptional hotels that shared the Best Hotels for Food in Africa, Middle East with Le Quartier Français – these were Bushmans Kloof, for their excellent culinary offering; and Maia (in the Seychelles) for their chef-rich approach.

Everyone here feels very priviledged to be in such spectacular local and international company! Congratulations to all the other hotels that were included in the 2010 Condé Nast Gold List.
