    Unique experience and venue. Sitting around a communal table was a lovely idea, especially post COVID-19 lockdowns. One felt like a member of the film crew from the TV series. Thank you!

    JAN is what dreams are made of. Everything from arrival to departure was pure magic. The food, the ambiance, the setting, the scene. No fuss and frills - this fine dining experience was South African in presentation and flavour. Jan continues to make Afrikaaners and our country proud. Worthy of a number one place on the world stage of food performance. We loved everything about our experience. I would have paid all my money just to have the cheese course!!!

    We had a fantastic time at JAN Franschhoek! It was the day after our wedding and such a special experience, the memories of which we will cherish forever. We loved the ambiance and music at the Veepos. All staff were very friendly and the service was fantastic. Dankie, Jan & Span!

    Dankie vir die inisiatief van hierdie spesiale ervaring, veral met die keuse van waar hierdie intieme aansit aangebied word. Die sentiment van die huisie, weldeurdagte atmosfeer en sommer net die keuse van musiek, bring dié JAN bietjie nader aan die huis.

    We had an unforgetable experience at Jan Franschhoek last night! Absolutely everything was perfect! The outside, surrounded with mountains, trees and lavender as well as the inside were beautiful and welcoming! The staff were so friendly and made us feel at home immediately. Then came the food! Something we never experienced before! Jan is a perfectionist when he discovers new combinations of putting different tastes together! Presenting the different courses took our breath away! From start to end, every course was wonderful. Although we do not drink wine, we received the most interesting drinks and loved it! To meet and make new friends around the table was a bonus! We were sad to leave all this behind when it was time to say goodbye. We will remember this evening for the rest of our lives!

    We counted the sleeps from the time we knew we had secured a spot - all that anticipation! We had heard so much about JAN and we were about to experience it for ourselves. Finally the day arrived... The welcome drinks under the oaks at La Motte, the trip across the road in the vintage kombi, the ambience created in the little barn, all those candles ; the attention to detail in each course and the wonderful affair with food and wine! It felt a little surreal with all of us around that cozy table, an incredible privilege indeed! If only one could press repeat...

    Great concept the family table set up created the opportunity to meet and chat with people. The ambiance as a mix of natural farm stable and classic french table decor was a feast for the eyes. The cheese and fruit arrangement reminded us of old dutch paintings presenting still life.

    Fortunate to have eaten at JAN in Nice and Klein JAN, JAN Franschhoek was an amazing experience and the idea of the long table worked so well. We made great friends
