Le Quartier Francais is a small, privately owned hotel with an emphasis on ultimate luxury and romantic charm and can be found tucked away in the centre of Franschhoek. As befits a French inspired hotel, the serious business of fine dining at Le Quartier is an experience in itself with much choice for guests staying at the hotel. It has been set apart and defined by The Tasting Room, a culinary showcase of chef Margot Janse’s work where her and her award-winning team can whip up an African inspired nine-course meal or inspire guests with a five-course choice menu. There is also The Common Room, Franschhoek’s local grazing ground that is the place to relax and linger with friends over a tasty dish or two. Or for those wishing to go slightly further a field can visit the Bread and Wine Vineyard Restaurant situated on the Môreson Wine Farm. Here Chef Neil Jewell will surprise guests with his artisan farm cured charcuterie, breads and modern country fare – all this accompanied by the estate wines.
If guest’s taste buds require a rest, then enjoy an intimate cinematic experience in the soft comfort of leather chairs or back row couches at The Screening Room. Sip a local wine, savour a snack and enjoy your complimentary movie, from old time classics to cinema nouveau movies. Or indulge in some R and R in The Treatment Room where Decleor Paris products can be used with Aromatherapy to relax and rewind.
