JAN Franschhoek has opened, smallest SA restaurant

South Africa’s acclaimed Chef Jan-Hendrik van der Westhuizen opened his third restaurant earlier this week, at the La Motte wine estate in Franschhoek. The chef opened his one-star Michelin JAN restaurant in Nice eight years ago, and Restaurant KLEINJAN at the Tswalu Game Reserve in the Kalahari last year.

The smallest restaurant in our country, with only 16 seats, JAN Franschhoek’s seven course Tasting Menu is served with a wine pairing per course. A glass of La Motte sparkling wine is served before diners are transported across the road to the lavender field surrounded heritage building.

The R2500 per head dinner restaurant is open Wednesdays – Sundays and bookings can be made via Dineplan.
