LE QUARTIER FRANCAIS NAMED ONE OF THE WORLD'S 50 BEST RESTAURANTS

For the seventh year running Le Quartier Francais is listed on the S.Pellegrino World's 50 Best Restaurants list. Le Quartier Francais has not only been named the best restaurant in Africa and the Middle East by S.Pellegrino World’s 50 Best Restaurants, but has also placed 36th in the world.

Organised by Restaurant magazine, the S.Pellegrino World's 50 Best Restaurants list is an annual snapshot of the opinions and experiences of over 800 international restaurant industry experts. Widely considered to be the ‘Oscars’ of the restaurant world - the S.Pellegrino World’s 50 Best Restaurants Awards is a pretty big deal. The judges scour the world for the finest of fine dining, and we are delighted that Le Quartier Francais has been placed at number 36 on this year’s list.

This is what they had to say about the restaurant:

"Part upmarket auberge, part award-winning restaurant complex, Le Quartier Français nestles in a corner of the Cape winelands. Dutch-born chef Margot Janse’s nine-course African-inspired Surprise Menu, paired with local wines, takes diners on a gourmet safari, highlighting southern African flavours, many of which are sourced from Le Quartier’s gardens. Others, such as Kalahari salt, hail from Namibia. Janse’s aim is to be 100% African in all her produce – she’s 80% there."
