Along with formal training in Europe, Chef Nicolene Barrow worked at the world-famous Le Gavroche Restaurant in London before setting-up Orangerie at Le Lude. Here classical French cuisine is presented with a contemporary twist; the purist, disciplined approach of the European masters combined with a hint of individual, modern creativity where what is on the plate is presented looking as good as it tastes. A seasonal menu offers the finest, freshest ingredients found in the forests, meadows, mountains and seas of the Cape, resulting in a selection of dishes offered in an environment conducive to making permanent Franschhoek memories.

    The soufflé wasn’t as light as we had tasted before. The salad (starter and main portion) is a bit ‘heavy’. Would be nicer if more elegant and more presented as an attractive plate instead of a bowl of lettuce and a separate plate. Portions are quite big on the whole, could be a little smaller.

    Just wonderful! Having spent many weeks tasting Brut Rose I was overwhelmed with how delicious the Le Lude’s own was! The best I had tasted in a v long time!

    There was a confusion about reservation on on arrival and we were a big group. Kim handle it with the upmost professionalism and we were seated and served promptly. We had an amazing dinner and we all look forward to returning.
