Epice - derived from the French word Épice meaning spice (and is pronounced eh-peace) - is an intimate fine dining restaurant located at Heritage Square, Franschhoek (opposite Leeu House) “The restaurant menu will revolve around spices, but that doesn’t necessarily mean spicy hot - think of vanilla and saffron, or cinnamon and nutmeg, too” says Scot Kirton, chef proprietor of La Colombe. Heading up the kitchen, head chef Charné Sampson is no stranger to refined, cutting edge cuisine- until recently she was the sous chef at La Colombe and is another one of Scot’s protégés to spread her wings. A graduate of Silwood, Charné also honed her craft in the kitchen of The Restaurant at Waterkloof and The Test Kitchen.

    What a wonderful, inventive experience. Loved the Cape Malay inflections woven throughout every dish, particularly the petit poussin and prawn dish, as well as the tuna with mango. Impeccable service, glorious wines, classy and relaxed, while still feeling mod and special. We'll certainly be back.

    Our second visit was even more amazing than the first. The intense flavours and amazing textures, standards of presentation, and incredible creativity applied to every aspect of the meal are of the highest standard. Service was delightful, informed and engaging. Excellent wine pairings. Probably a course too much but I wouldn't want to miss any of them! Well done Charne and team!
