This was the third winery we had visited that day. However, it was a memorable experience because our host made us feel extremely welcomed. We sat at an outside table with the host and 4 bottles of wine. She was very knowledgeable about the wines we tasted and provided perspective not only about the wine but also about the wine... More

We turned up for lunch without booking, and were immediately made to feel very welcome by our charming waitress. We only had a light lunch and a glass of wine, but that was enough to make us aware that when possible we should make a return visit for a full meal. The surroundings were attractive, the food was excellent and... More

We used to go to the restaurant frequently before it moved over the road from the manor house and thoroughly enjoyed David's hospitality, food and service, to the extent that for special occasions we would head up to Franschhoek and Mon Plaisir. From a personal point of view, unfortunately David is no longer running Mon Plaisir, however we have been... More

Great food great service. I had the mussels from the specials board. They were delicious. The wine tasting the tear was great too. Our host had real comical personality which made it fun.

Moving through the quaint and exceptionally cosy Wine and Schnapps tasting room (if you are able to tear yourself away), you will find the restaurant at Chamonix. Magnificent setting, it's like you're actually sitting in the middle of the magical mountian forest that surrounds you. We were exceptionally lucky that it was raining cats and dogs the day we went,... More

loved the setting, feel as if you were sitting in a tree house in a forest. Food is brilliant and so are the wine and service. Was happily surprised

We came in the off season, and were one of just a few to enjoy the beauty of this restaurant. Food was delicious and the wine went well with the steak that we ordered. The staff was attentive and we tried the wine tasting before dinner and was a great social event.

I've never reviewed anything here previously, leaving my partner to do the reviews. However, after our experience of eating here I feel I must warn potential diners. The main food was OK, and as others have pointed out is traditional French, so lots of meat. I opted for pasta, which was edible but nothing to rave about. We then decided... More

Traditional c1970's French menu, poorly presented, poor standard of cooking, extremely slow service, grossly over priced food, appallingly bad deserts. We complained to the head chef who basically told us we were talking c***. The only redeeming feature of this restaurant is Chamonix wine at cellar prices (which is mad). To the owners and the head chef I have this... More
