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.

    Epice has no own identity, it is the little sister of La Petite Colombe. Or in other words - a copy of La Petite Colombe or LPC No. 2. The dish in front of kitchen - just a copy of the sister. Chef visibly bored to explain... not enthusiastic, which is no wonder if he is forced to copy the previous chef in this location. We will not be back for a long time.

    An amazing pairing that was so cleverly curated. The food was pure adventure with local flavours cleverly weaved in and I’ve discovered 2 new wines to explore.
