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 starter soufflé and French onion soup was amazing! Starter portions are extremely large. The views, breathtaking. The mushroom tortellini was over powered by the mustard, I would tell customers or note on the menu as it is an acquired taste. Don’t forget to do a tasting!

    We had the High Tea at Orangerie. It was excellent. The food, the staff the venue-can’t get better.

    Service adequate but could have been more attentive. Possibly short-staffed
