About The Kitchen at Maison

A Franschhoek restaurant with international appeal

The source of spiritual and physical nourishment, the kitchen is considered the heart of the home. Similarly, The Kitchen is the heart of Maison Estate. Our acclaimed bistro-style restaurant is nestled among sprawling vineyards in the pristine Franschhoek valley, a short drive from the Cape Town’s culinary capital.

For the last three consecutive years, The Kitchen has been voted a Top 20 Finalist at the Eat Out Mercedes-Benz Restaurant Awards. In addition to the incredible food, The Kitchen is a place of laughter and relaxation. A spacious veranda spills out onto the rolling lawns where tables are strategically placed for outdoor eating. Whether you prefer an indoor or outdoor setting, The Kitchen is the perfect place to while the day away.

About the food

Food at its most fundamental

Simplicity is deceptively complicated to achieve. In fact, it’s taken us five years to create a menu that embodies our simplistic approach to cooking.

The result is a series of taste experiences that will surprise and delight your palate. Each dish has been stripped down to its essence, using flavours that enhance their counterparts without upstaging them. Because we use fewer ingredients, they have to be the best. Which means they have to be fresh. The majority of our restaurant’s produce is sourced from our farm, and the rest, as close to it as possible. It’s a new way of eating, pure and simple.
