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.

    My visit to Orangerie was spectacular. The service staff was immediately warm and knowledgeable. I enjoyed two dishes, the traditional French onion soup, which was a highlight due to the excellent broth: full bodied with sweet gently caramelized onion and meaty umami flavors. This was followed by an excellent salmon tartar, again featuring a shining star in the form of a delicate sauce: sweet ponzu with notes of cucumber and citrus.

    We absolutely adore every experience we have at the Orangerie! From every aspect, it is a truly magical time - cuisine, service, ambiance - totally perfect! But what makes it even more perfect is being able to share time at the Orangerie with friends and family who have never been there before - they are always so delighted with their experiences too! Thank you so much to everyone at the Orangerie at Le Lude!
