The best restaurant on the African continent

In an article last week, Larry Olmsted from Forbes, called The Tasting Room, ‘the best restaurant on the African continent’ – we’re deeply honoured and thrilled by this statement.

An excerpt: “While Franschhoeck has a long main street lined with restaurants, shops, wine rooms, and galleries – it simply made for visiting. Filled with art and comprised of rooms in swank freestanding cottages arranged around a pool and gardens, Le Quartier Francais is its best hotel, and the Tasting Room its best restaurant.”
